Physics for Clinical Oncology

Edited by Amen Sibtain, Andrew Morgan, and Niall MacDougall

Radiotherapy in Practice

  • Radiotherapy remains the major non-surgical treatment modality for malignant disease, with over 50% of patients receiving radiotherapy at some point in their disease.
  • The physics behind the administration of radiotherapy is essential to an understanding of how the treatment works, and therefore ensuring optimum practice. However, most oncologists will have been taught little physics since school.
  • Existing books, written by physicists are very scientific and dry. This book combines the expertise of physicists and clinical oncologists making the scientific discipline of physics clinically relevant, and accessible, providing an excellent source of information for practising oncologist.
  • The text is mapped against the FRCR curriculum to serve as essential reading for the trainee oncologist and the wider radiotherapy team.
