The major challenge in this field is to develop new strategies for the controlled use of radiotherapy. This includes the ability to focus and control applications with equipment that can target tissues with high accuracy, using new methods of isotopic and external beam introduction. It also means minimizing the risk of uncontrolled radiation exposure by employing minimal doses and the smallest tissue volume required to achieve the desired effect.
The Radiation Therapy of Benign Diseases features articles written by internationally recognized experts who confront and critically discuss these major issues. It will prove to be an essential and informative read not only for radiation therapists but also for internists, surgeons, ophthalmologists and biologists interested in this endeavor.
