Perfect for radiation oncology physicians and residents needing a multidisciplinarytreatment-focused resource, this updated edition continues to provide the latest knowledge in this consistently growing field. Not only will you broaden your understanding of the basic biology of disease processes, you’ll also access updated treatment algorithms, information on techniques, and state-of-the-art modalities. The consistent and concise format provides just the right amount of information, making Clinical Radiation Oncology a welcome resource for use by the entire radiation oncology team.

Key Features
  • Content is templated and divided into three sections — Scientific Foundations of Radiation Oncology, Techniques and Modalities, and Disease Sites – for quick access to information.
  • Disease Sites chapters summarize the most important issues on the opening page and include a full-color format, liberal use of tables and figures, a closing section with a discussion of controversies and problems, and a treatment algorithm that reflects the treatment approach of the authors.
  • Chapters have been edited for scientific accuracyorganizationformat, and adequacy of outcome data (such as disease control, survival, and treatment tolerance).
  • Allows you to examine the therapeutic management of specific disease sites based on single-modality and combined-modality approaches.
  • Features an emphasis on providing workup and treatment algorithms for each major disease process, as well as the coverage of molecular biology and its relevance to individual diseases.
