Описание: This book provides both basic and advanced information on the clinical presentation, imaging findings and treatment of sinonasal diseases. For each specific disease, the rationale underlying the treatment strategy is discussed and the imaging findings critical to the decision-making process are identified. This is an original approach and reflects the constant team effort at the editors' institute over the past 15 years to integrate clinical and radiological information with the aim of establishing the most appropriate treatment. Special emphasis is placed on the identification of clinical and imaging data that allow selection of an endonasal or an external approach in surgical candidates. The value of planning an integrated endoscopic and radiological follow-up in the different diseases is also thoroughly reviewed. This book will acquaint radiologists and clinicians with each other's world and serve as an invaluable guide to the selection of imaging techniques.

Описание: This book addresses the day-to-day treatment planning issues that radiation oncologists are likely to encounter during the treatment of breast cancer patients and provides numerous practical “tips” that will assist in navigation of the treatment planning process, from delineation of the tumor boundaries to discrimination of adjacent normal tissues and critical structures at risk of radiation injury. Differences in target delineation and treatment planning according to technique are emphasized, with coverage of conventional radiation therapy and advanced techniques including cardiac-sparing approaches, e.g., using active breathing control, intensity-modulated radiation therapy, proton beam therapy, and electron beam therapy post mastectomy. Individual chapters also focus on radiation setup and verification techniques and radiation treatment planning systems. The book, which is part of the Springer series Practical Guides in Radiation Oncology, is designed for hands-on use by radiation oncology residents/fellows in training and practicing radiation oncologists.

Описание: Radiation Oncology: A Physicist's-Eye View was written for both physicists and medical oncologists with the aim of helping them approach the use of radiation in the treatment of cancer with understanding, confidence, and imagination. The book will let practitioners in one field understand the problems of, and find solutions for, practitioners in the other. It will help them to know "why" certain approaches are fruitful while, at the same time, encouraging them to ask the question "Why not?" in the face of assertions that some proposal of theirs is impractical, unreasonable, or impossible. Unlike a textbook, formal and complete developments of the topics are not among the goals. Instead, the reader will develop a foundation for understanding what the author has found to be matters of importance in radiation oncology during over thirty years of experience. Presentations cover, in largely non-technical language, the principal physical and biological aspects of radiation treatment and address practical clinical considerations in planning and delivering therapy. The importance of the assessment of uncertainties is emphasized. Topics include: an overview of the physics of the interactions of radiation with matter; the definition of the goals and the design of radiation therapy approaches; living with uncertainty; biophysical models of radiation damage; computer-based optimization of treatments; and proton therapy. Formulae and quantitation in general have been avoided in the belief that an understanding of the majority of important medical and biological issues in radiation oncology generally cannot be achieved through mathematical relationships. This unique and highly readable book will be indispensable both to beginners and to those with experience in either medical physics or radiation oncology.The author, who is Professor of Radiation Oncology Emeritus at Harvard Medical School, was an early pioneer in the development of image-based treatment planning and has been responsible for developing and putting into clinical practice such widely used tools as: digitally reconstructed radiographs, dose-volume histograms, and beamвЂ™s-eye view and has been a leader in the development of proton beam therapy.
Описание: Serves as a reference that utilizes evidence-based medicine as the basis for practical treatment recommendations and guidelines in radiation oncology. This book highlights important "pearls" of epidemiology, anatomy, pathology, and clinical presentation. Key facets of the work-up are listed, followed by staging and risk classification systems.
Описание: Radiation medicine has evolved on several fronts over the past decade and is a useful adjunct in the definitive, adjunctive, and palliative therapy for several
solid and hematologic malignancies. This issue coupled with Part I publishing in February 2006 should de-mystify'and update the practicing oncologists on how best to incorporate the
radiation medicine team into the evaluation and management of patients. In this issue the focus is on radiation of specific anatomy and on specific types of cancers.
who can benefit from these issues: medical oncologists, hematologists, radiation oncologists, family medicine and internal medicine physicians, nurse oncologists, medical social workers,
medical physicists, and housestaff/fellows from a myriad of specialties. Key words are: Radiation, medicine, oncology, therapeutic radiology, palliative, stereotactic, radiosurgery, medical
physics, combined-modality, quality of life, and, outcomes.
