About the book
In this book, the plan will be to explore the background behind developing tools for the computation of absorbed radiation dose including the original tools for radiation dose calculation. The devices used to shape and conform the dose to topographical environments of small and large field radiation dose delivery will be presented including strategies for total body radiation therapy. Tools for computation and dose validation will be explored in the history section with subsequent chapters designed to demonstrate to the reader what is involved in modern patient care including image validation of the target and the use of imaging and imaging platforms to validate dose delivered including radiopharmacy and tools used to define dose migration from the application of radiopharmacy. A chapter will be dedicated to modern particle therapy and nuances involved in creating planning target volumes for particle patient care for modern proton delivery. The final chapter will be dedicated to the future vision of what a modern department will look like with respect to both FTE and the planning environment.
