In print since 1972, this seventh edition of Radiobiology for the Radiologist is the most extensively revised to date. It consists of two sections, one for those studying or practicing diagnostic radiology, nuclear medicine and radiation oncology; the other for those engaged in the study or clinical practice of radiation oncology--a new chapter, on radiologic terrorism, is specifically for those in the radiation sciences who would manage exposed individuals in the event of a terrorist event. The 17 chapters in Section I represent a general introduction to radiation biology and a complete, self-contained course especially for residents in diagnostic radiology and nuclear medicine that follows the Syllabus in Radiation Biology of the RSNA. The 11 chapters in Section II address more in-depth topics in radiation oncology, such as cancer biology, retreatment after radiotherapy, chemotherapeutic agents and hyperthermia.Now in full color, this lavishly illustrated new edition is replete with tables and figures that underscore essential concepts. Each chapter concludes with a "summary of pertinent conclusions" to facilitate quick review and help readers retain important more

Review quote

"Radiobiology for the Radiologist 7th edition does an admirable job carrying on the tradition set by its predecessors. It retains the succinct and understandable style that one familiar with older additions would expect while adding color illustrations which will no doubt appeal to many new adopters of the title. Once again, this book can be recommended with no reservation to radiologists in training, graduate students in the biomedical sciences who employ radiation in their research, and all others who are interested in learning foundational information about this fascinating area of science and medicine.
