Radiation Oncology Book from C.H.I.P.S.

The Physics of Radiation Therapy
Fourth Edition
by Faiz M. Khan

The Physics of Radiation Therapy provides the entire radiation therapy team with a thorough understanding of the physics and practical clinical applications of advanced radiation therapy technologies, including:

  • 3D-CRT
  • stereotactic radiotherapy
  • HDR
  • IMRT
  • IGRT
  • proton beam therapy

These technologies are discussed along with the physical concepts underlying treatment planning, treatment delivery, and dosimetry.

The Physics of Radiation Therapy includes brand-new chapters on image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) and proton beam therapy. Other chapters have been revised to incorporate the most recent developments in the field.

This edition also features more than 100 full-colour illustrations throughout. A companion Website will offer the fully searchable text and an image bank.
