This concise, but comprehensive textbook sets out all the essentials of the science and clinical application of radiobiology for those seeking accreditation in radiation oncology. The fully updated 3rd edition continues to discuss the basis of radiation therapy and presents the principles and significant scientific developments that underlie current attempts to improve the radiotherapeutic managemnet of all cancers.
New topics in the 3rd edition include chapters on volume effects in normal tissues and the L-Q approach in clinical practice, with major revisions to sections on cell proliferation, radiation cytogenetics, radiotherapy-related morbidity, hyperfractionation and individualisation of radiotherapy. The book continues to provide invaluable advice for trainee and practising radiation oncologists from a team of internationally respected contributors and draws on the considerable experience of the Editor, gained during his time as Course Director of the annual ESTRO course in Basic Clinical Radiobiology.
