Radiology residents take a physics exam during their first year, which they must pass to continue. This book is the most often used reference to study for the physics exam. Written by practicing, active radiobiologists, the book brings together basic laboratory research and practical, clinical applications. The easy-to-read text and informative illustrations ensure comprehension. Summaries at the end of each chapter facilitate quick review.The first section covers topics applicable to diagnostic radiology, nuclear medicine, and radiation oncology; the second section offers material specifically for radiation oncologists. The new edition will be a full color book, with color illustrations.
