Beschreibung:

Design and Shielding of Radiotherapy Treatment Facilities provides readers with a single point of reference for protection advice to the construction and modification of radiotherapy facilities. The book assembles a faculty of national and international experts on all modalities including megavoltage and kilovoltage photons, brachytherapy and high-energy particles, and on conventional and Monte Carlo shielding calculations. This book is a comprehensive reference for qualified experts and radiation-shielding designers in radiation physics and also useful to anyone involved in the design of radiotherapy facilities.

Design and Shielding of Radiotherapy Treatment Facilities provides readers with a single point of reference for all aspects of shielding design and radiation protection advice to the construction and modification of radiotherapy facilities. The book assembles a faculty of national and international experts on all modalities including megavoltage and kilovoltage photons, brachytherapy and high-energy particles, and on conventional and Monte Carlo shielding calculations. Their consensus and expertise is reflected through the list of chapters, and the editors have also ensured a consistent message throughout the text by face-to-face discussion and thorough revisions of the original IPEM Report 75. This book is a comprehensive reference for qualified experts and radiation-shielding designers in radiation physics and also useful to administrators, planners, architects, constructors and others involved in the design of radiotherapy facilities.
