Radiobiology for the radiologist / Eric J. Hall, Amato J. Giaccia.
Philadelphia : Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, c2012.
"In print since 1972, this seventh edition of Radiobiology for the Radiologist is the most extensively revised to date. It consists of two sections, one for those studying or practicing diagnostic radiology, nuclear medicine and radiation oncology; the other for those engaged in the study or clinical practice of radiation oncology--a new chapter, on radiologic terrorism, is specifically for those in the radiation sciences who would manage exposed individuals in the event of a terrorist event."--Provided by publisher.
