About this book


Radiotherapy of Intraocular and Orbital Tumors presents a new approach to the role of radiation therapy in the management of ophthalmic cancer. The indications for ultrasonography, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging studies are analyzed, and treatment techniques, together with their results, are described for each tumor. Particle beam and plaque irradiation are reviewed, and conservative and surgical management of radiation effects are detailed. In the past, most books on this subject included a chapter on radiotherapy but emphasized the dangers of radiation complications. However, great progress in understanding the effects of irradiation upon the tissues of the eye and orbit, new therapeutic equipment, and new imaging techniques (CT, MRI) allow for careful treatment planning. This book has taken the long overdue step of reconsidering the role of irradiation of the eye so that it may take its place as a respected, rather than feared, treatment in the combined modality approach so important today. Together with experts in relevant fields, the editors have produced a refreshingly clear and thoroughly referenced volume which will be a valuable asset to all ophthalmologists, radiation oncologists, pediatricians, endocrinologists, oncologists, and residents in training, as well as to students in these disciplines.
