Completely updated for its Second Edition, this text is a comprehensive guide to state-of-the-art treatment planning techniques in radiation oncology. The book provides the treatment planning team—radiation oncologists, medical physicists, and medical dosimetrists—with detailed information on both the physics of radiation treatment planning and the clinical aspects of radiotherapy for specific cancers. More than 600 illustrations provide practical examples of the methodologies.
Brand-new chapters in this edition cover image-guided radiation therapy, high dose rate brachytherapy, and brachytherapy treatment planning algorithms. The chapters have been completely updated, particularly in areas including intensity-modulated radiation therapy and brachytherapy.
The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.
