The American Lecture Series has in this book a concise, practical, easy-to-read monograph that should appeal to anyone who practices radiation therapy but especially to the resident in training. It is an outgrowth of notes assembled during the author's training years at Duke University and from the sessions of the American Academy of Dermatology. It reflects excellent training and generously acknowledges the advice and guidance of various experts in the field. The small handbook considers briefly but adequately everything from elementary physics of radiation, through indications for therapy, various techniques, radioisotopes, and radiobiologic mechanisms of the skin. It is a good book to have at hand.
