Principles and Practice of Radiation Therapy: Physics, simulation, and treatment planning
Charles M. Washington, Dennis T. Leaver
Mosby, 1996 - Medical - 311 pages
This core-curriculum resource provides all the essential information on physics, simulation and treatment planning without having to consult several different resources. It begins with chapters that explain applied math and radiation physics, thus preparing readers for the chapters on simulation and dosimetry that follow. The most up-to-date technologies and applications, including the latest in virtual simulations, are discussed throughout the book.
