Summary

This new book educates readers about new technologies before they appear in hospitals, enabling medical physicists and clinicians to prepare for new technologies thoroughly and proactively, and provide better patient care once new equipment becomes available. Emerging technologies in imaging, treatment planning, treatment delivery, dosimetry and informatics are all discussed. The book is divided into three parts: recently developed technologies available for practice; technologies under development nearing completion; and technologies in an early stage of development that could have potential radiotherapy applications.

Features:

  • Introduces emerging technologies in imaging, treatment planning, treatment delivery, dosimetry and informatics
  • The advantages and limitations of each technology in clinical settings are discussed
  • Recommendations on how to adopt the technologies are provided
  • Suggestions on how to prepare quality assurance are provided as needed
  • Critiques and improvement points are provided for researchers
