khan 5th the physics of radiation therapy


These revisions included additions and subtractions wherever necessary, to make the text more precise and the topics more relevant to the needs of both the student and the practitioner. New sections and/or discussions were added to cover subjects that have received the most attention in the past few years, for example, Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT), Volumetric-Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT), Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy (SBRT), and Failure Mode Event Analysis (FMEA) approach to quality assurance. A new chapter has been added to cover SBRT in greater detail. New color illustrations have also been added throughout to update the book’s usefulness. A website with full text and an image bank accompany the book for greater convenience in studying and teaching
