This monograph, "Recent Advances in Brachytherapy Physics," is published by the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) to up-date one of the earliest forms of radiation therapy. Brachytherapy, the use of contact or implanted radioactive sources, is still an important modality in the treatment of cancer. The discussion of new Brachytherapy sources together with new instruments, techniques, and applicators makes this monograph a useful reference for radiation therapy physicists and physicians.
