This newly revised and updated edition of Radiation Biophysics provides an in-depth description of the physics and chemistry of radiation and its effects on biological systems. Coverage begins with fundamental concepts of the physics of radiation and radioactivity, then progresses through the chemistry and biology of the interaction of radiation with living systems. The Second Edition of this highly praised text includes major revisions which reflect the rapid advances in the field. New material covers recent developments in the fields of carcinogenesis, DNA repair, molecular genetics, and the molecular biology of oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes. The book also includes extensive discussion of the practical impact of radiation on everyday life.

  • Covers the fundamentals of radiation physics in a manner that is understandable to students and professionals with a limited physics background
  • Includes problem sets and exercises to aid both teachers and students
  • Discusses radioactivity, internally deposited radionuclides, and dosimetry
  • Analyzes the risks for occupational and non-occupational workers exposed to radiation sources

Review:

Praise for the Second Edition "...the book is well written. One of the attractive parts of the book is that as a single authored volume it is coherent from beginning to end... The book is highly recommended as a text in radiation biophysics and as a reference source for those who are working in closely related areas." --RADIATION RESEARCH

Praise for the First Edition: "Radiation Biophysics is a comprehensive textbook that bridges the gap between radiation physics and radiation biology by integrating these fields rather than focusing on one or the other... Radiation Biophysics brings together diverse subject matter in a cogent yet highly readable manner, reflecting the extensive experience of the author as a teacher of this material. The book should also, however, find utility beyond the classroom." --SCIENCE

"I reviewed the first edition of the text for a journal in the discipline of radiation biophysics, and I have referred to the text many times over the past six years... The book is very nicely laid out. It is easy to read and contains extensive author and subject indexes. The illustrations, principally line drawings, are uniformly good... This second edition is improved over the first edition in both appearance and completeness." --William R. Hendee, PhD, Medical College of Wisconsin, for DOODY'S PUBLISHING REVIEWS
