International Journal of Radiation Oncology, Biology, and Physics, 12-SEP-06, Volume 66, Issue 2, Robert J. Griffin, PhD, Department of Therapeutic Radiology—Radiation Oncology, University of Minnesota Medical School, Minneapolis, MN -- "Many refer to the textbook Radiobiology for the Radiologist as the "bible" of radiation biology for educating residents, researchers, and clinicians....The book still contains the material that has made it the best-known and most often-used radiation biology text. It includes new information and details that enhance its relevance to nuclear medicine, radiology and radiation oncology. For the most part, this is accomplished with a balanced viewpoint from each of the fields that contribute to the exciting and important field of radiation biology. As such, it should remain a primary teaching tool and reference point for researchers and clinicians alike."—International Journal of Radiation Oncology, Biology, and Physics
