Written by a scientist with many years experience in the field, An Introduction to Radiobiology will appeal to a wide variety of readers who need to understand the mechanisms by which ionizing radiation causes cellular damage.5/5(1). Provides an introduction to quantitative radiobiology with emphasis on practical aspects of the subject. Readers will gain a ready understanding of both the very fast processes which initiate.

Fundamentals of Radiobiology presents a clear picture of the effects of radiation to living organisms. It discusses the steps leading from the absorption of energy to death or final injury. The focus of study is the changes induced at the molecular level by absorbing energy. Beginning with a discussion of the basic science of radiobiology, the book explains the fast processes that initiate damage in irradiated tissue and the kinetic patterns in . The basic aim of hyperfractionation is to separate early and late effects. The overall treatment time remains conventional at 6 to 8 weeks, but because two fractions per day are used, the total number of fractions is 60 to The dose must be increased because the dose per fraction is decreased. This handbook for teachers and students was formulated based on the recommendations of a Consultants Meeting on International Syllabus for Radiobiology Teaching held File Size: 1MB.

Description This new edition of A.H.W. Nias' successful book provides an updated and revised introduction to quantitative radiobiology, particularly, to those aspects of the subject which have a practical application. Radiation is used to cure cancer but can also cause it. Radiation is also used in medical diagnosis and in nuclear power stations.
