Fifty years have passed since the first patient was treated with fast neutrons, but this form of therapy is still a matter of bitter dispute. New neutron generators have recently been installed in many countries and for the first time patients can be treated with equipment which is technically similar to modern megavoltage x-ray equipment. The time is now ripe for a full discussion of the physical and radiobiological factors governing the production and use of fast neutron beams for therapy. Recently there have also been significant advances in knowledge of the radiobiological factors governing the treatment of cancer with radiation. This has had an important influence on current thinking about the place of radiotherapy with neutrons and other heavy particles. It has also affected current views on the radiation hazard of neutrons, a matter of importance in the use of neutrons for chemical analysis "in vivo". This book will be a valuable introduction to the subject for radiotherapists, medical physicists, radiographers and radiobiologists new to the field.

Also, those already established in the use of fast neutrons for medical purposes will find this book a useful summary of current knowledge.
