Review
‘Olson’s book is packed with insights into an increasingly common, but rarely discussed experience, caring for family members who have a diagnosis of cancer. In laying the foundations for a sociology of cancer caregiving Olson reflects on a range of issues, including impacts on our orientation to time, role changes and mismatches between social expectations and emotional responses. Her argument is sociologically sophisticated whilst respecting issues of profound personal impact.’ Kevin Dew, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand ‘This book is unique and incredibly timely, melding the sociology of emotions with the analysis of the contemporary dynamics of giving and receiving care in the context of cancer. It partners a concern with the contemporary political, cultural and economic mediation of informal care practices, with an explication of care as a truly lived and transformative experience. This book fills a significant gap within the literature and offers a much needed analysis that reveals challenging realities and hopeful possibilities, drawn from the everyday experiences of Australians caring for their spouses.’ Alex Broom, University of New South Wales, Australia

Practical Radiation Oncology

 Oncology, Radiology  Comments Off on Practical Radiation Oncology
Dec 122019
 

This book addresses the most relevant aspects of radiation oncology in terms of technical integrity, dose parameters, machine and software specifications, as well as regulatory requirements. Radiation oncology is a unique field that combines physics and biology. As a result, it has not only a clinical aspect, but also a physics aspect and biology aspect, all three of which are inter-related and critical to optimal radiation treatment planning.
In addition, radiation oncology involves a host of machines/software. One needs to have a firm command of these machines and their specifications to deliver comprehensive treatment. However, this information is not readily available, which poses serious challenges for students learning the planning aspect of radiation therapy. In response, this book compiles these relevant aspects in a single source.

Radiation oncology is a dynamic field, and is continuously evolving. However, tracking down the latest findings is both difficult and time-consuming. Consequently, the book also comprehensively covers the most important trials. Offering an essential ready reference work, it represents a value asset for all radiation oncology practitioners, trainees and students.
