High-LET Radiations in Clinical Radiotherapy covers the proceedings of the 3rd Meeting on Fundamental and Practical Aspects of the Application of Fast Neutrons and other High-LET Particles in Clinical Radiotherapy. The title presents papers that report the experiences in utilizing High-LET radiations in clinical radiotherapy. The coverage of the text includes observations on the reactions of normal and malignant tissues to a standard dose; and clinical observations of early and late normal tissue injury and tumor control in patients receiving fast neutron irradiation. The selection also covers results of fast neutron radiotherapy at Amsterdam; and results of clinical applications with fast neutrons in Edinburgh. The book will be of great use to students and practitioners of medical technology.
