This book addresses the most relevant aspects of radiation oncology in terms of technical integrity, dose parameters, machine and software specifications, as well as regulatory requirements. Radiation oncology is a unique field that combines physics and biology. As a result, it has not only a clinical aspect, but also a physics aspect and biology aspect, all three of which are inter-related and critical to optimal radiation treatment planning. In addition, radiation oncology involves a host of machines/software. One needs to have a firm command of these machines and their specifications to deliver comprehensive treatment. However, this information is not readily available, which poses serious challenges for students learning the planning aspect of radiation therapy. In response, this book compiles these relevant aspects in a single source. Radiation oncology is a dynamic field, and is continuously evolving. However, tracking down the latest findings is both difficult and time-consuming. Consequently, the book also comprehensively covers the most important trials. Offering an essential ready reference work, it represents a value asset for all radiation oncology practitioners, trainees and students.

Hardbound. Since the first conference in 1966, there has been an enormous change, qualitatively as well as quantitatively in the application of computers in the field of radiotherapy. The fast technical development has made applications possible that only a few people dreamed of two decades ago. There is now hardly any field in radiotherapy where computers have no task.This book is a collection of papers dealing with all aspects of the use of computers in radiation therapy. It contains contributions by the majority of international scientists working in this field and thus presents a fair account of the state of the art. It is felt that a useful application of computers in radiotherapy is only possible by close cooperation of all disciplines involved.New applications of computer software and hardware on the computation, imaging, process control and quality assurance of radiation treatments are discussed, as are new developments in radiation dose calcu
