Radiation Therapy for Skin Cancer


Photon Radiation Therapy for Skin Malignancies is a vital resource for dermatologists interested in radiation therapy, including the physics and biology behind treatment of skin cancers, as well as useful and pragmatic formulas and algorithms for evaluating and treating them. 

 

Dermatology has always been a field that overlaps multiple medical specialties and this book is no exception, with its focus on both dermatologists and radiation oncologists. It is estimated that between 2010 and 2020, the demand for radiation therapy will exceed the number of radiation oncologists practicing in the U.S. tenfold, which could profoundly affect the ability to provide patients with sufficient access to treatment. Photon Radiation Therapy for Skin Malignancies enhances the knowledge of dermatologists and radiation oncologists and presents them with the most up-to-date information regarding detection, delineation and depth determination of skin cancers, and appropriate biopsy techniques. In addition, the book also addresses radiation therapy of the skin and the skin’s reactions to radiation therapy.

Preventive Dermatology


In his latest book, Dr. Robert A. Norman introduces us to the intriguing concept of preventive dermatology. Although dermatologists have long been patient advocates and have stressed vigorously on the importance of sun avoidance and protection, there is still much more that we can do to prevent disease. Dr. Norman and his skilled coterie of collaborators discuss two distinct types of prevention in dermatology: the prevention of skin diseases and the prevention of s- temic disorders, some with only very indirect connections to the skin. The frst is fairly well known to dermatologists; the second is truly an emerging concept of great importance. Educational efforts to prevent or at least control skin disease may range from the proper use of sunscreens to weight loss in psoriatic patients, the avoidance of trigger factors in rosacea, proper skin care in atopic dermatitis, or adoption of a low-fat diet to decrease the incidence of actinic keratosis and nonmelanoma skin cancer. Another good example is the use of vaccines to protect against diseases such as herpes zoster and genital HPV infection in females.
