Review: The Physics of Radiation Therapy

User Review  - Hannah - Goodreads

A prescribed text, this book was incredibly expensive and, having previously studied physics as a minor, I could have completed my coursework without having to spend $250 on this textbook. Probably best to save your pennies and borrow it from the library. Read full review
