    Reflecting the past 20 years of intense research in radioimmunotherapy, this timely reference surveys an expansive breadth of topics on the evolving developments in radiation therapy. Placed in the context of advances in cancer treatment, chapters progress systematically from basic principles and properties of radionuclides to detailed summaries of current cancer therapy. With contributions from nearly 50 international experts and containing over 1300 literature references, drawings, photographs, tables, and equations, Radioimmunotherapy of Cancer is an invaluable and indispensable reference for physicians in nuclear medicine and medical physicists; oncologists, radiologists, radiochemists, and radiopharmacists; immunologists, pulmonologists, and cancer researchers; pharmacologists and drug delivery pharmaceutical chemists; and upper-level undergraduate, graduate, and medical school students in these disciplines.
