Radiobiology for the Radiologist, 7th Edition (ORIGINAL PDF from Publisher)



by Eric J. Hall, Amato Giaccia

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 information.

“Discusses the basic concepts of radiobiology and features a new chapter on techniques of molecular biology…also provides coverage of tumor kinetics, acute and late radiation effects, and tissue sensitivity.”
