Book Description

The Essentials of Clinical Radiation Oncology (PDF) is a comprehensive clinical review that is user-friendly and summarizes the most recent developments in cancer treatment in a format that is simple to read. Each chapter is organized for easy navigation and the retention of information, beginning with a “quick-hit” summary that provides an overview of each disease, its natural history, and general treatment options. This summary is followed by a table of contents for the chapter. After each “quick-hit,” there is a high-yield summary that discusses the epidemiology, anatomy, risk factors, genetics, pathology, clinical presentation, screening, prognostic factors, workup, treatment paradigms, staging, and medical management of each different type of cancer. The current standard of care for radiation therapy is described in each section of the treatment paradigm. This includes indications, dose constraints, and side effects. At the end of each chapter is a question and answer section that is based on evidence. This section summarizes data that has the potential to change clinical practice in order to answer key questions about the outcomes of radiation treatment. Information that all radiation oncologists and related practitioners will find extremely useful when approaching treatment planning and clinical care is consolidated throughout the book using flow diagrams and tables.

Essentials of Clinical Radiation Oncology is a “one-stop” resource for practicing radiation oncologists, related practitioners, and radiation oncology residents entering the field. It was designed to replicate a “house manual” that is created and used by residents in training, and it has been designed to mimic the look and feel of that “house manual.”
