The papers collected in this hugely useful volume cover the principle physical and biological aspects of radiation therapy and in addition, address practical clinical considerations in the planning and delivering of that therapy. The importance of the assessment of uncertainties is emphasized. Topics include an overview of the physics of the interactions of radiation with matter and the definition of the goals and the design of radiation therapy approaches.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"It provides a lucid account of some of the modern technologies and methods in radiation therapy in which the author has been a leader. ... Goitein's avoidance of mathematical formulas makes his treatise easily readable. The footnotes that elaborate concepts and definitions are useful, and the author explains concepts clearly and provides extensive illustrations and understandable diagrams. ... is an invaluable resource not only for the experienced practitioner but also for the radiation oncologist, medical physicist, or dosimetrist who is new to the field." (Dan Jones, Physics Today, Vol. 61 (12), December, 2008)
