    Generations Radiotherapy & Oncology PC is pleased to announce that radiation oncologist, Dr. Christopher Jahraus, MD has been awarded fellowship status in the American College of Radiation Oncology (ACRO) at its annual meeting in Orlando, Florida. External beam therapy is used to aim highly focused beams of radiation at the edge of the site where cancer is found. This book provides practical guidance, taking the reader through the fundamentals of clinical radiotherapy followed by detailed chapters on each .

    This book discusses the management of cancer by radiation therapy both for cure and palliation. A wide range of clinical topics are introduced. In the introductory chapters on radiation physics and radiobiology, important terms and concepts used in clinical radiation oncology are covered. Gillian M. Thomas, in Clinical Radiation Oncology (Fourth Edition), Conformal radiotherapy techniques including intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) and image-guided brachytherapy (IGBT) appear in some situations to have improved the therapeutic ratio of radiation principally by decreasing dose received by normal tissues and therefore an expectation for decreasing incidence of.
