    Acta Oncol 1995; 34(8):1041-50Walstam R
  • Therapeutic radiology was initially based purely on clinical experience. Radiation physics was introduced in Sweden when Rolf M. Sievert started the "Radiumhemmet Physics Laboratory" in 1920. Dosimetry standards, in vivo dosimetry, brachyradium techniques, teleradium therapy and radiation protection were areas for development. After world war II there has been a continuous expansion of the profes…
  • [A forty-year survey of radiation therapy of the nasopharyngeal carcinoma]. [Journal Article]
