Radiation may be generated by various modalities (eg, C-arm [eg, standard, mini], O-arm, computed tomography [CT], mobile or fixed fluoroscopy, portable x-ray machine) 16,21 or by direct delivery methods (eg, brachytherapy using seeds or balloons, intraoperative radiation therapy). 1 The modality or method chosen for delivery of radiation. The essential goal of radiation safety is to prevent injury from exposure to ionizing radiation. For this reason, Section , establishes the following annual or yearly occupational.

hazards and radiation protection (health physics). This book represents a collaborative effort by professionals from many different countries who share a common goal of disseminating their radiation . Radiation Therapy Alone. RT as the sole therapy is used in the treatment of localized tumors, such as early-stage cancer of the larynx or prostate; non-melanoma skin cancer; head and neck cancers; and Cited by: Radiotherapy is one of the main types of cancer treatment. It uses ionizing radiation to destroy cancer cells and limit cell growth. It is applied by a team of qualified experts with the appropriate education and many years of experience in radiation oncology, medical physics and radiation . This book was written primarily for the undergraduate therapeutic radiographer, but it is hoped that medical physicists, nurses and clinical oncologists will also fi nd it useful. Our main aims for the book were to fulfi l a current need for such a text and to produce a ‘reader-friendly’ book on radiotherapy .
