visión de conjunto:Críticas This is the definitive resource for the study and application of radiobiology to diagnostic radiology and radiation oncology. The value of this book to both these fields is readily apparent considering that the first edition published in 1972 was written by the current senior editor Dr. Eric Hall. Hall (subsequently Hall and Giaccia) has served as the leading textbook of radiobiology used by generations of radiologists and radiation oncology residents. This edition continues to provide a contemporary update for those seeking an understanding of radiobiology with a focus on its application in medicine.The purpose is to provide a thorough introduction to radiobiology for resident physicians in radiology nuclear medicine and radiation oncology. The book is the definitive resource for these purposes and an essential addition to the library of all residents in these fields. The online format will be of great value to the majority of readers who prefer ebooks to print books particularly the residents who are the primary audience.The book is geared to resident physicians but none-the-less is a highly valuable resource to practicing physicians and other researchers seeking understanding of radiobiology. The authors are pre-eminent authorities in this field.As with prior editions the book is extremely well organized including at the end of each chapter a Summary of Pertinent Conclusions section highlighting the concepts and key points. The book is divided into sections for students of diagnostic radiology nuclear medicine and radiation oncology (chapters 1-16) followed by a section specifically for students of radiation oncology (chapters 17-28). There are numerous figures in all chapters that significantly complement the written text.For nearly 50 years this has served as the definitive textbook of radiobiology. The authors admirably provide timely and essential updates which continue to make this book an essential addition to the library of any individual interested in radiobiology or any institution which serves such an audience.Beyond being a definitive resource on this topic the authors elucidate the details of the many aspects of radiobiology in a concise yet complete manner. Well done!Weighted Numerical Score: 95 - 4 Stars!Doodys Publishers' Club June 2018 Reseña del editor Considered the gold standard in the field for over 45 years Radiobiology for the Radiologist combines traditional and molecular radiation biology principles and appeals to students residents and veteran clinical practitioners. This edition continues the two-part format of previous editions and features brand-new chapters thoroughly updated content and hundreds of figures that provide a visual context to the information in each chapter. Organized into two sections. Part1 is sufficient for students of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine and follows the syllabus published by RSNA. Students in Radiation Oncology need the general information contained in Part 1 but also need the more specialized information contained in Part 2.New chapters introduce new therapies on medical countermeasures to radiation exposure and new molecular techniques in radiology.Mirrors the format of the Syllabus in Radiation Biology prepared by the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA). Written for residents researchers and graduate students in radiology nuclear medicine radiation oncology and medical physics.Generally considered the most comprehensive textbook on cellular and molecular radiobiology.
