This is the first comprehensive, practical introduction to radiotherapy physics. It provides detailed descriptions of current methods and gives specific guidance in their own areas of expertise. Both sealed and unsealed source therapy are fully covered. Specific topics include selection of equipment and planning of installations, use of dosimetry protocols, dose calculation and treatment planning techniques. Medical physicists and radiographers will find the book an excellent guide to this important and expanding speciality.

'This book is aimed at the trainee physicist and is a good practical guide to the subject without going into the detailed theory which is adequately covered in other standard texts.' Aslib Book Guide, vol. 59, no. 1, January 1994
'A wealth of practical detail is included in the various chapters which are written by experienced medical physicists.'
'This is an excellent reference book for anyone involved in the practice of radiotherapy. The layout is extremely clear with good indexing and excellent referencing.' D.M. Tait, The British Journal of Radiology, 67, 1994
`the book gives a broad, but still detailed, introduction on the subject, covering topics from external beam therapy, through brachytherapy to unsealed source therapy ... It presents a useful and comprehensive source of information ... this book is useful for the physicist who is about to start a career in radiation treatment physics. It covers the whole area of different treatment techniques in a clear and practical way. The experienced physicist reading this book will find a lot of useful information.' N. Nystrom, Physics in Medicine and Biology, Vol. 40, Issue 12
