The Physics of Conformal Radiotherapy provides a thorough overview of conformal radiotherapy and biological modelling. It develops the 3-D techniques in radiation therapy covered in Webb, The Physics of Three Dimensional Radiation Therapy. It includes three dimensional treatment planning, optimisation, with careful evaluation of photon multileaf collimation, proton therapy, transit dosimetry, intensity-modulation techniques and assesses biological modelling.
