& Academics:
Essentials of Clinical Radiation Oncology is a comprehensive, user-friendly clinical review that summarizes up-to-date cancer care in an easy-to-read format. Each chapter is structured for straightforward navigability and information retention beginning with a “quick-hit” summary that contains an overview of each disease, its natural history, and general treatment options. Following each "quick-hit" are high-yield summaries covering epidemiology, risk factors, anatomy, pathology, genetics, screening, clinical presentation, workup, prognostic factors, staging, treatment paradigms, and medical management for each malignancy. Each treatment paradigm section describes the current standard of care for radiation therapy including indications, dose constraints, and side effects. Chapters conclude with an evidence-based question and answer section which summarizes practice-changing data to answer key information associated with radiation treatment outcomes. Flow diagrams and tables consolidate information throughout the book that all radiation oncologists and related practitioners will find extremely useful when approaching treatment planning and clinical care.   


 


Essentials of Clinical Radiation Oncology has been designed to replicate a "house manual" created and used by residents in training and is a "one-stop" resource for practicing radiation oncologists, related practitioners, and radiation oncology residents entering the field.   


 


Key Features:


 


• Offers digestible information as a learning guide for general practice  


• Examines essential clinical questions which are answered with evidence-based data from important clinical studies


• Places clinical trials and data into historical context and points out relevance in current practice


• Provides quick reference tables on treatment options and patient selection, workup, and prognostic factors by disease site.
