 Oncology  Comments Off on Radiation Therapy for Head and Neck Cancers: A Case-Based Review
Apr 052020
 

This evidence-based guide to the current management of cancer cases at all head and neck sites will assist in the appropriate selection and delineation of tumor volumes/fields for intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), including volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT). Each tumor site-related chapter presents, from the perspective of an academic expert, several actual cases at different stages in order to clarify specific clinical concepts. The coverage includes case presentation, a case-related literature review, patient preparation, simulation, contouring, treatment planning, treatment delivery, and follow-up. The text is accompanied by illustrations ranging from slice-by-slice delineations on planning CT images to finalized plan evaluations based on detailed acceptance criteria. The book will be of value for residents, fellows, practicing radiation oncologists, and medical physicists interested in clinical radiation oncology

Pancreatic Cancer

 Gastroenterology/Hepatology, Oncology  Comments Off on Pancreatic Cancer
Apr 042020
 

Worldwide, there are an estimated 232, 000 new cases of pancreatic cancer annually. In the United States, it is the fourth leading cause of cancer death, and approximately 30,000 people die of pancreatic cancer each year. The disease is difficult to diagnose in its early stages, and most patients have incurable disease by the time they present with symptoms. The overall 5-year survival rate for this disease is less than 5%.
In organizing this handbook, Dr. Neoptolemos and his co-editors will produce a distinguished Major Reference Work devoted to pancreatic cancer. This handbook will have widespread appeal among clinicians, pathologists and basic scientists who are now struggling to understand this complex and rapidly expanding field.

Because of the recent and vast growth in both the clinical and scientific research being done in pancreatic cancer (there is currently an unprecedented investment by academia and industry in this field), each researcher’s knowledge of other specialty areas outside his or her own is now often quite limited. The aim of this book is to place these the tangible advances—those that are indispensable to all working on pancreatic cancer—readily at hand. The book will focus on advances that will not become dated, and the editors will choose authors who are the very best in each area.

Prevention and Management of Acute and Late Toxicities in Radiation Oncology: Management of Toxicities in Radiation Onco

 Oncology  Comments Off on Prevention and Management of Acute and Late Toxicities in Radiation Oncology: Management of Toxicities in Radiation Onco
Apr 042020
 

This book is an evidence-based guide to the prevention and current management of acute and late toxicities of radiation therapy for a wide range of malignancies. Each chapter focuses on a particular anatomic site and provides information on normal sectional anatomy, contouring of target volumes and organs at risk, dose constraints, the pathophysiology of radiation toxicity, and treatment approaches for each potential toxicity. The information provided will assist in the planning and delivery of intensity-modulated radiation therapy, including volumetric modulated arc therapy, stereotactic radiosurgery, and stereotactic body radiotherapy. It will also enable the selection of appropriate, evidence-based management options in individual patients who experience radiation toxicities, taking into account the organ-specific pathophysiology of radiation injury. Written by acknowledged experts and featuring numerous high-quality illustrations, the book will be an ideal reference aid for practicing clinical and radiation oncologists, radiotherapists, fellows, residents, and nurses.

Childhood Cancer: A Parent’s Guide to Solid Tumor Cancers, 3 edition

 Oncology, Pediatrics  Comments Off on Childhood Cancer: A Parent’s Guide to Solid Tumor Cancers, 3 edition
Mar 202020
 

Each year more than 6,000 children and teens in the United States are diagnosed with a solid tumor (e.g., kidney tumor, liver tumor, neuroblastoma, retinoblastoma, or sarcoma). The illnesses and their treatments can have devastating effects on family, friends, schoolmates, and the larger community. This newly updated edition contains essential information families need during this difficult time. It includes descriptions of the newest treatments, such as computer-assisted surgery, tandem stem cell transplants, and targeted therapies as well as practical advice about how to cope with diagnosis, medical procedures, hospitalization, school, and finances. Woven throughout the text are true stories–practical, poignant, moving, funny–from more than 100 children with cancer, their siblings, and their parents.
