Overview of Radiation and Non Radiation Modalities for Cancer Treatment

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

Neoplasm refers to an abnormal tissue growth that arises as a consequence of rapid cell proliferation and continues to grow abnormally even after terminating the stimuli that had instigated the change. It lacks partial or complete functional coordination with that of the normal tissues. Neoplasms are classified depending on the degree and type of tissues involved. Carcinogenesis is a multistep process where a plethora of endogenous and exogenous factors turns out genetic and epigenetic modifications, which collectively amend some critical

Clinical conformal radiotherapy is the holy grail of radiation treatment and is now becoming a reality through the combined efforts of physical scientists and engineers, who have improved the physical basis of radiotherapy, and the interest and concern of imaginative radiotherapists and radiographers. Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy describes in detail the physics germane to the development of a particular form of clinical conformal radiotherapy called intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT). IMRT has become a topic of tremendous importance in recent years

Does radiation medicine need more regulation or simply better-coordinated regulation? This book addresses this and other questions of critical importance to public health and safety. The issues involved are high on the nation's agenda: the impact of radiation on public safety, the balance between federal and state authority, and the cost-benefit ratio of regulation. Although incidents of misadministration are rare, a case in Pennsylvania resulting in the death of a patient and the inadvertent exposure of others to a high
