Описание: Provides core basics of planning in a practical and accessible manner. This book covers developments in the field, introduction of further reading and inclusion of a colour plate section to illustrate 3-D imaging. It is suitable for radiotherapist in practice.
Описание: An ideal text for radiation oncologists, hematologist-oncologists, and radiologists, Image-Guided Radiotherapy and Functional Imaging in Modern Lymphoma Management is the foremost source for information on the increasingly important subject of image guided radiation therapy (IGRT) and its crucial role in the clinical evolution of high-precision ionizing beam therapy. An understanding of IGRT allows clinicians to improve targeting accuracy and safely increase dosage administration without increasing toxicity in normal, healthy tissue areas, resulting in better lymphoma patient outcomes.
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: 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: From background physics and biological models to the latest imaging and treatment modalities, the "Handbook of Radiotherapy Physics: Theory and Practice"
covers all theoretical and practical aspects of radiotherapy physics. In this comprehensive reference, each part focuses on a major area of radiotherapy, beginning with an introduction
by the editors and then subdividing into self-contained chapters. The first three parts present the fundamentals of the underlying physics, radiobiology, and technology
The ensuing sections discuss the support requirements of external beam radiotherapy, such as dose measurements, properties of clinical beams, patient dose
computation, treatment planning, and quality assurance, followed by a part that explores exciting new advances that include developments in photon and particle therapy. Subsequent
ections examine brachytherapy using sealed and unsealed sources and provide the framework of radiation protection, including an appendix that describes the detailed application of
UK legislation. The final part contains handy tables of both physical constants and attenuation data.
To achieve safe and effective radiotherapy, there needs to be a close
understanding among various disciplines. With contributions from renowned specialists, the "Handbook of Radiotherapy Physics: Theory and Practice" provides essential theoretical
and practical knowledge for medical physicists, researchers, radiation oncologists, and radiation technologists.
