About this book


In this major reference work, a team of leading experts provide a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the ever-changing field of radiation oncology. The publication is divided into three volumes, the first of which covers basics such as radiotherapy techniques, treatment documentation, clinical radiobiology, and patient management. In the second volume, all aspects of clinical radiation therapy are discussed in depth for the full range of tumor types. In order to ensure that the reader has a full understanding of cancer management in each scenario, information is also provided on diagnosis and classification, general management principles, the role of surgical and systemic therapy, and prognosis. The third volume focuses on medical physics, covering the mathematical and computer science background, biophysics, radiation physics, instrumentation, tracer kinetic modeling, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, radiation sources and detectors, biomedical engineering, imaging techniques, radiation treatment planning, and quality assurance. This book will be invaluable for all radiation oncologists. It is published as part of the SpringerReference program, which delivers access to living editions constantly updated through a dynamic peer-review publishing process.
