For students of all the branches of medicine and surgery and health professionals that aspire to be greater and better at their procedures and medications. A renowned book by those who have read it and learnt from it. Many have already ordered it and is on the way to their home. Whether you work in the USA, Canada, UK or anywhere around the world. If you are working as a health professional then this is a must read.. The most reviewed on book Radiobiology for the Radiologist 8th Edition PDF is available for grabs now here on our website free. Whatever books, mainly textbooks we have in professional courses specially Medicine and surgery is a compendium in itself so understand one book you need to refer another 2-10 books. Beside this there are various other text material which needs to be mastered!! Only reference books are partially read but all other books have to be read, commanded and in fact read multiple times.
“This is the definitive resource for the study and application of radiobiology to diagnostic radiology and radiation oncology. The value of this book to both these fields is readily apparent considering that the first edition, published in 1972, was written by the current senior editor, Dr. Eric Hall. Hall (subsequently Hall and Giaccia) has served as the leading textbook of radiobiology used by generations of radiologists and radiation oncology residents. This edition continues to provide a contemporary update for those seeking an understanding of radiobiology with a focus on its application in medicine.
The purpose is to provide a thorough introduction to radiobiology for resident physicians in radiology, nuclear medicine, and radiation oncology. The book is the definitive resource for these purposes and an essential addition to the library of all residents in these fields. The online format will be of great value to the majority of readers who prefer ebooks to print books, particularly the residents who are the primary audience.
The book is geared to resident physicians but none-the-less is a highly valuable resource to practicing physicians and other researchers seeking understanding of radiobiology. The authors are pre-eminent authorities in this field.
As with prior editions, the book is extremely well organized, including at the end of each chapter a “Summary of Pertinent Conclusions” section highlighting the concepts and key points. The book is divided into sections for students of diagnostic radiology, nuclear medicine, and radiation oncology (chapters 1-16), followed by a section specifically for students of radiation oncology (chapters 17-28). There are numerous figures in all chapters that significantly complement the written text.
For nearly 50 years, this has served as the definitive textbook of radiobiology. The authors admirably provide timely and essential updates which continue to make this book an essential addition to the library of any individual interested in radiobiology or any institution which serves such an audience.
Beyond being a definitive resource on this topic, the authors elucidate the details of the many aspects of radiobiology in a concise yet complete manner. Well done!”

HALL OF FAME
For Students in Radiation Biology, Nuclear Medicine, Radiation Oncology
February 1, 2019
This textbook was used for a graduate-level course I recently completed in Radiation Biology, part of a Masters Degree program in Radiation Health Physics.
The material is thorough and begins with the fundamental physics and chemistry that are necessary to understand the effects of radiation on cells, continuing to cover the radiosensitivity of cells at various points of their mitotic cycles, the impact of oxygen levels in cells, radiation dose levels and effects, treatments and historical exposures, and much more. The text is generously supplemented with illustrations, photographs, and charts. Each chapter concludes with a ‘summary of pertinent conclusions’ which help to reinforce the key concepts covered.
For students with the necessary background this is a very readable text, and it could be used for self-study or reference. In my case it supplements lectures that I find invaluable in learning the information and concepts that are conveyed.
The first section of the book, comprising chapters 1 through 16, are intended for students of diagnostic radiology, nuclear medicine, and radiation oncology. The second section continues into more detail on clinical aspects of radiotherapy and treatment, for students of radiation oncology.
The text is now in its 8th edition, updated in October 2017 by the original authors, Eric Hall of Columbia University, and Amato Giaccia of Stanford. The first edition of the book was issued in July 1972, nearly 47 years ago as I write this review.
A particularly welcome feature of the hardcover version of the text that I purchased is that it includes (at no additional charge) an ‘enhanced eBook’ that can be downloaded and accessed from computer, tablet or phone. I have downloaded the text myself and it is completely equivalent to the hardcover and easily navigated, although personally I much prefer reading the textbook itself. Still, I have the book on my phone and should I find myself wanting to refer to it when away from my office or computer, it is right there with me and can be easily accessed and searched.
This is considered to be one of the key reference texts for this subject material, and is regularly found on the bookshelves of professionals in the field. The longevity of this text and the fact that the authors have continued to keep it updated over the years give me great confidence in it as a foundation for my own studies and work in this area.
