Advances in Particle Therapy : A Multidisciplinary Approach Hardback
Edited by Manjit (CERN, Switzerland) Dosanjh, Jacques (Genolier Clinic, Swiss Medical Network, Switzerland) Bernier
Part of the Series in Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering series
Hadron therapy is a groundbreaking new method of treating cancer.
Boasting greater precision than other therapies, this therapy is now utilised in many clinical settings and the field is growing.
More than 50 medical facilities currently perform (or are planned to perform) this treatment, with this number set to double by 2020.
This new text covers the most recent advances in hadron therapy, exploring the physics, technology, biology, diagnosis, clinical applications, and economics behind the therapy.
Providing essential and up-to-date information on recent developments in the field, this book will be of interest to current and aspiring specialists from a wide range of backgrounds. Features:Multidisciplinary approach: explores the physics, IT (big data), biology, clinical applications from imaging to treatment, clinical trials, and economics associated with hadron therapyExplores the latest research and developments in this rapidly evolving field, and integrates them into the current global challenges for radiation therapy Covers developments from the physics to the clinic and emphasises the importance of collaborationEdited by recognised leaders in the field, including the co-ordinator of ENLIGHT (the European Network for Light Ion Hadron Therapy)Contains chapter contributions from international leading experts in the field
