Practical Radiotherapy Planning 4th Edition
by Ann Barrett (Author), Stephen Morris (Author), Jane Dobbs (Author), Tom Roques (Author)
Planning is a critical stage of radiotherapy. Careful consideration of the complex variables involved and critical assessment of the techniques available are fundamental to
good and effective practice.
First published in 1985, Practical Radiotherapy Planning has, over three editions, established itself as the popular choice for the trainee raditation oncologist and
radiographer, providing the ‘nuts and bolts’ of planning in a practical and accessible manner.
This fourth edition encompasses a wealth of new material, reflecting the radical change in the practice of radiotherapy in recent years. The information contained within the
introductory chapters has been expanded and brought up to date, and a new chapter on patient management has been added. CT stimulators, MLC shieldings and dose profiles,
principles of IMRT, and use of MRI, PET and ultrasound are all included, amongst other new developments in this field.
The aim of the book remains unchanged. Complexity of treatment planning has increased greatly, but the fourth edition continues to emphasise underlying principles of
treatment that can be applied for conventional, conformal and novel treatments, taking into account advances in imaging and treatment delivery.
