Over the past 15 years, there has been progressive development of a series of biophysical models for the analysis and interpretation of the cellular effects of ionizing radiation. The theme of the workshop was the development of accurate models of the interaction of radiation with tissue and the origins of carcinogenesis - probably the most important issue in the field of radiation protection, since analyses of this kind are the only alternative to epidemiological studies. This volume concentrates on physical models and data analysis, and provides the reader with indications of critical benchmark experiments which need to be included in future research.
This book will be of interest to radiation biophysicists and biologists, medical physicists and anyone involved in radiological therapy and protection, as a valuable library addition reviewing all aspects of biophysical radiation effect modelling.
