Taghian (breast radiation oncology, Harvard Medical School) and Halyard (radiation oncology, Mayo Clinic) provide clinicians involved in the care of patients receiving radiotherapy, and students, fellows, hospital staff, medical physicists, cancer biologists, radiobiologists, and interdisciplinary colleagues with a compilation of 13 articles on the role of radiation therapy in breast cancer.
Intended as a primer for radiation oncologists, physicists, radiobiologists, dosimetrists, and other members of the cancer team, and the book covers the radiobiology, physics, and dosimetry of SBRT, and gives practical details on procedures for specific conditions.
This is the radiation risk model most favored by radiobiologists in estimating the risk of exposure in radiology, instead of supra linear or linear-quadratic models with no threshold.
