Even a cursory review of most chapters in this book illustrates the rapid and wide-ranging changes that have occurred in pediatric oncology practice during the past 2 decades. Should a pediatric radiation oncologist attempt to treat children today with 1970s’ “state-of-the-art” therapy, that person would clearly be woefully out-of-date and require substantial reeducation. Thus, it might be said that the only constant in pediatric oncology practice has been change combined with ongoing attempts to optimize results.
