Book Description

This handbook presents the most current information on the effects of ionizing radiation on mammalian cells, with emphasis on human tissues. The dose-effect relationship is emphasized in a quantitative manner. The book contains up-to-date data on the late effects of low levels of radiation on humans. It also provides some of the late consequences of radiation therapy detected among cancer survivors.


"The book is of impressively wide scope, is easy both to read and refer to, and is particularly good in the physiology, toxicology, and risk aspects of radiation. It is ideal for reference and to read for broadening one's knowledge of topics often omitted (for reasons of time) from specialist courses such as for residents in radiation oncology, nuclear medicine, or diagnostic imaging...I admire it."
--J. Fowler, Leuven
