Radiation in the Treatment of Cancer

Part of the Biological and Medical Physics, Biomedical Engineering book series (BIOMEDICAL)

The prognosis for someone diagnosed with cancer is not as dire as is commonly believed. Many cancers, such as early stage cancer of the larynx, childhood leukemia, and Hodgkin’s disease, are highly curable. Unfortunately, others, such as pancreatic cancer, have a poor prognosis. The curability of most cancers lies somewhere between these extremes.
