  • Description
  • Details

An essential, practical guide to the use of radioisotope therapy, this volume also includes the background and developmental biology which underpins its use.

Radioisotope therapy, an internal form of radiation administered through liquid or injection, treats the cancer with minimal damage to the normal surrounding tissue. This book is a practical guide to radioisotope therapy, taking the reader through the basic principles, and then developing this by application to specific sites and disease

Individual tumours and diseases are explored, with specific focus given to radioisotope treatment options. The barriers to radioisotope therapy, such as ease of access, acquisition of radioisotopes, radiation protection regulations, and cost are also discussed.
