Book Description :

Radiation oncology is a field of medical specialization which involves the use of radiation for the treatment of cancer, and the management of pain and other symptoms. It can be applied to treat varied cancers and may be used alone or in conjunction with chemotherapy, surgery and other treatments. Radiation therapy generally works on cancerous tumors owing to its ability to control cell growth. Ionizing radiation damages the DNA of cancerous tissue thus leading to cellular death. The objective of radiotherapy depends on the location, stage and type of the tumor, and accordingly it may be called adjuvant, curative, neoadjuvant therapeutic or palliative. The field of radiation oncology has undergone significant advancements resulting in higher cure rates, improved quality of life and fewer side effects. New imaging technologies of tumors specifically allow radiation beams to be directed at the cancer, thereby limiting damage to adjacent organs. This book is a compilation of chapters that discuss the most vital concepts and emerging trends in the field of radiation oncology. It aims to shed light on some of the unexplored aspects and the recent researches in this field. This book, with its detailed analyses and data, will prove immensely beneficial to professionals and students involved in this area at various levels.

Book Description :

This book provides a quick reference guide for clinicians in radiation oncology. It is designed to be an intuitive and easily reviewed study guide for board or maintenance of certification examinations, as well as a quick reference for residents and established radiation oncologists who need a refresher. The text begins with a general pearls chapter that radiation oncologists should consider in all aspects of their practice, including cancer visibility, dosing, counseling recommendations, and toxicity management. The subsequent chapters then delve into different cancer disease sites, including pediatrics, central nervous system, head and neck, thoracic, breast, gastrointestinal, gynecologic, genitourinary, hematologic, soft tissue, palliative, and radiophysics/radiobiology. Within each chapter, each disease and its recommended approach is then summarized in only a few pages, allowing a focus on the most essential information. Bullet points, figures, tables, and images make for an intuitive reader experience. Recommendations are taken from the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO), the European Society for Radiation Oncology (ESTRO), and the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN). Planning guides for imaging, diagnosis, and staging offer readers a starting point in approaching each patient based on disease origin, and dosing guidelines then detail consideration for treatment methods. Each chapter additionally includes disease-specific pearls and key points to test the knowledge reviewed in the chapters. Experts in the disease sites from the United States serve as senior authors on each chapter. The authors include all diseases associated with radiation oncology training to ensure a comprehensive resource for exam studying and clinical care. Residents, trainees, and established radiation oncologists find this an ideal study resource for both board and certification exams, as well as an easily accessible aid during practice.
