Biomolecular Action of Ionizing Radiation examines the molecular responses in the body to ionizing radiation. This graduate-level text is based on a course given by the author to medical physics and radiation oncology students at McGill University. The course is aimed specifically at the medical physics applications of this subject, and not only includes the radiobiophysics but also relates this to potential treatment techniques. The book is ideal for graduate students taking courses in medical physics, radiation oncology and radiation biology.
