The Radiographer, Dr. Raymond Budd -- "There should be few, if any, radiation therapy physicists or technologists who are not familiar with Faiz Khan's text The physics of radiation therapy
. Since its first edition in 1984 it has established itself as a leading reference text for all involved in the use of ionising radiation for cancer treatment. All of the chapters in this new edition are extensively referenced and many of them have worked examples in support of the presented materials. The book is clinically oriented and presents practical aspects as well as underlying theory to clarify basic concepts. Many of the illustrations have been revised to reflect current practice and they greatly benefit from the enlarged format. This excellent book will continue to be a valuable resource to the entire radiation oncology team. There is little more to be said, other than it should be mandatory reading for all those involved in radiation therapy practice."-Dr. Raymond Budd, The Radiographer
