Overview of Radiation and Non-radiation Modalities for Cancer Treatment: A Biomedical Engineering Perspective is a comprehensive reference on the different modalities and therapeutic instruments of cancer treatment from a medical physics perspective. The book is divided into 3 main sections; radiation therapy, non-radiation therapy and combination therapy. The focus of this book is on the mechanisms which underpin engineering and medical physics. This sets the book apart from other texts on this topic which primarily focus on biology. The fundamental physics behind the techniques used in cancer diagnosis or therapy modalities is also introduced in this text.
This resource provides readers with the latest technologies used in clinics for cancer diagnosis and therapy, and their advantages and disadvantages.
- Gives an overview on the latest technology
- Covers the basic principles of each technology
- Explores the latest research and challenges in each modality
2. Radiation related modalities and therapies
3. Non-radiation related modalities and therapies
4. Combination therapies
