      Principles and Practice of Radiation Therapy is designed to help you understand cancer management, improve clinical techniques for delivering doses of radiation, and apply complex concepts to treatment planning and/5. Journal of Radiotherapy in Practice is a peer-reviewed journal covering all of the current modalities specific to clinical oncology and radiotherapy. The journal aims to publish research from a wide range of styles and encourage debate and the exchange of information and opinion from within the field of radiotherapy practice and clinical oncology.

    The ideal radiotherapy treatment plan produces a uniform coverage of the target volume without giving significant dose to surrounding normal tissue. 3D planning is a realistic option for many cases, due to the increased availability of radiotherapy CT scans, virtual simulation, MR, fast computer hardware and improved algorithms.
