Frontiers in Radiation Biology: Proceedings of the 21st Annual Meeting of the European Society for Radiation Biology, Tel Aviv, October 1988
VCH, 1990 - Radiation - 712 pages
Recent events have shown the harmful effects of radiation and the possible spread-area of radioactive contaminants in the environment. Nevertheless, the use of radiation in treating cancer has widened to include more types of radiation and heavy ions to improve results with radioprotective and radiosensitizing compounds. These proceedings cover a wide scope of topics ranging from radiotherapy, radiation carcinogenesis and radiation protection to the impact of radiation on the environment. They provide both an indispensable state-of-the-art report and a stimulating discussion of important developments in this exciting field of research.
