ERHS 551B - Radiation Biology Principles for Medicine: Principles of Radiation Oncology

  • 2 credits
  • Online

Application of basic radiation biology to the clinical application of radiation therapy. Radiation sensitivity and tolerance is evaluated based on normal tissue architecture and kinetics. The mechanisms of acute and late radiation effects are elucidated. The impact of time, dose, and fractionation on tumor control and radiation effects are clarified and related to established and newer treatment modalities, including combination therapies and emerging technologies.
