Описание: Over recent years, there has been a dramatic increase in knowledge of the biology of the lymphomas which has been accompanied by the emergence of new treatments that offer both improvements in efficacy and reduction in toxicity. Molecular profiling of tumor tissue and other new advances have led to a better understanding of the genetic basis of lymphoma, identification of new therapeutic targets, and potentially valuable prognostic information. Monoclonal antibody therapies, radioimmunoconjugates and other new agents such as proteosome inhibitors are providing important new treatment options for patients.In this volume, an internationally recognized group of experts provides a comprehensive overview of the biology, pathology, standard treatments, and novel approaches in management of patients across the complex landscape of lymphoma subtypes. Researchers and practitioners alike will welcome this useful summary of the state of the art in this field.
Описание: Non-Hodgkin`s Lymphoma (NHL) is defined as any of a large group of cancers of the immune system. NHL`s can occur at any age and patients are often marked by enlarged lymph nodes, fever, and weight loss. This book focuses on the diagnosis and management of follicular lymphomas, marginal zone lymphomas, and B-cell lymphomas.

Описание: More than 50% of people with cancer have radiotherapy at some time during their illness, yet their needs for supportive care have received little attention compared with the needs of patients undergoing other types of cancer treatment. This book addresses the impact of treatment on the individual and the issues facing health carers who provide clinical and supportive care. It integrates key aspects of assessment, physical and psychosocial morbidity and toxicity management, placing them in the physical, psychosocial and organisational context in which they occur. Patients' perspectives are used throughout the text to illustrate the physical and emotional experience of radiotherapy, and the difficulties facing patients who are in transition through the system. New and innovative approaches to patient care are discussed as well as challenges facing radioerapy practitioners today. Practical advice on the assessment and clinical management of acute and late side effects is provided. Critical reviews of the current evidence base are included, along with future directions for clinical research and development. Written by a multi-professional group of authors, this book is aimed primarily at nurses and therapy radiographers but is also relevant to hospital and community doctors and nurses who encounter patients before, during and after radiotherapy. The book is suitable for undergraduates and postgraduates, as it relates current research findings and theory to the clinical practice environment, within the context of cancer care delivery in the 21st century.

Описание: This title provides a review of selected radiotherapy treatment units. Each chapter contains the basic physical principles associated with each piece of equipment, building upon these ideas to examine the structure, function and applications of the machine in question. Critical evaluation of each piece of equipment is included to allow the undergraduate student to begin to develop skills, and learning points incorporated through each chapter encourage the student to apply this fundamental learning to their own specific and unique clinical environment.
Описание: A comprehensive textbook of radiotherapy and related radiation physics and oncology for use by all those concerned with the uses of radiation and cytotoxic drugs in the treatment of patients with malignant disease. Best known as 'Walter and Miller', over the years this book has become the core text for therapeutic radiography students and an important introductory text for trainee radiologists anlinical physicists. It is divided into 2 parts: the first covers underlying principles of physics ad the second (and longer) part deals with radiotherapy and oncology. The book underwent a major overhaul and expansion (of part 2) in the previous edition, which firmly established it as the outstanding work of its kind in this field.
Описание: This 2nd edition provides up-to-date information on the diagnosis and treatment of cancers of the eye and orbit. The 1st edition has been significantly revised. The most recent data with respect to retinoblastoma, rhabdomyosarcoma, and melanoma are included, and there are a number of chapters by new contributors, lending this edition a more broadly based, international character. The presenting signs and symptoms of tumors are outlined, and indications for the various imaging modalities are analyzed. Treatment techniques, together with their results in respect of survival and local tumor control, are described in detail; throughout, special attention is paid to multimodality therapy. Potential complications of radiotherapy are described, and relevant information is provided on the management of radiation effects. The emphasis is on the need for a holistic approach to the patient that recognizes the wider role of irradiation of the eye now that more careful treatment planning is possible.

Описание: During the 10 years since the last edition of Histopathology of Non-Hodgkin's Lymphomas, based on the updated Kiel classification, our knowledge on malignant lymphomas, especially on extranodal lymphomas, has increased. This volume - Histopathology of Nodal and Extranodal Non-Hodgkin's Lymphomas - is an expanded and completely revised edition, now based on the WHO classification. The parallels to the updated Kiel classification and the REAL classification are indicated. The information is organized in organ-specific chapters, comprising the well-known nodal lymphoma entities as well as all known extranodal lymphomas and the different organ-specific clinico-pathological entities: lymphomas of the spleen, the gastrointestinal tract, the skin, etc. In addition to the morphology, the major immunohistochemical, molecular genetic, and clinical data are included in each chapter.

Описание: This book provides a well-illustrated, comprehensive, and up-to-date account of Hodgkin lymphoma. Epidemiology, pathogenesis, and the role of the microenvironment are examined in detail. The initial clinical evaluation and use of staging systems are fully discussed, and prognostic factors are carefully considered. The various treatment options for first-line and relapsed Hodgkin lymphoma are presented, including the newly available treatments for recurrent disease and the management required in special clinical circumstances. Given the very high cure rates and the young age of many patients, there is an increasing need to develop better individually tailored treatment strategies that will help to avoid both early and late side-effects of treatment. Such strategies receive due attention, and clear guidance is provided on the handling of Hodgkin survivors. This book will be of great value to hematologists, oncologists, and all others with an interest in Hodgkin lymphoma.
