Since the first edition appeared 11 years ago, Wilson's book has been an indispensable book in the library of radiotherapeutic centers where radium is being used. This new edition has added a series of new subjects in the most modern developments in radiotherapy such as: the use of radioisotopes in radiotherapy, telegamma therapy (Cobalt-60, Iridium-192, Cesium-137), and protection.
The radioactive isotopes used in the therapy of cancer are particularly studied. Their properties and applications are explained.
All types of telegamma apparatus in use today are described with devices for beam direction.
This book contains a lot of information for dosimetry
