Published:March 09, 2021DOI:https://doi.org/10.1016/j.clon.2021.02.004
      Understanding the mechanisms by which radiation interacts with tissue is essential for understanding how dose is deposited in patient tissue. This editorial series summarises the predominant interaction processes of photons, electrons and protons with matter, at a level suitable for candidates preparing for the First FRCR Examination in Physics. The first part of this series concentrates on photon interactions in matter; Part 2 will consider charged particle interactions [
