Essentials of Clinical Radiation Oncology
Matthew C. Ward , Rahul D. Tendulkar , Gregory M. M. Videtic
Essentials of Clinical Radiation Oncology is a comprehensive,
user-friendly clinical review that summarizes up-to-date cancer care in
an easy-to-read format. Each chapter is structured for straightforward
navigability and information retention beginning with a "quick-hit"
summary that contains an overview of each disease, its natural history,
and general treatment options. Following each "quick-hit" are high-yield
summaries covering epidemiology, risk factors, anatomy, pathology,
genetics, screening, clinical presentation, workup, prognostic factors,
staging, treatment paradigms, and medical management for each
malignancy. Each treatment paradigm section describes the current
standard of care for radiation therapy including indications, dose
constraints, and side effects. Chapters conclude with an evidence-based
question and answer section which summarizes practice-changing data to
answer key information associated with radiation treatment outcomes.
Flow diagrams and tables consolidate information throughout the book
that all radiation oncologists and related practitioners will find
extremely useful when approaching treatment planning and clinical care.
Essentials of Clinical Radiation Oncology has been designed to replicate a "house manual" created and used by residents in training and is a "one-stop" resource for practicing radiation oncologists, related practitioners, and radiation oncology residents entering the field.
