Produktbeschreibung

This book concisely reviews important areas of progress in radiation oncology with the aim of providing the practicing radiation oncologist with a fundamental understanding of each topic and an appreciation of its significance for the future of radiation oncology. Detailed attention is paid to the impact of newer imaging modalities, such as multiparametric MRI and PET using FDG and other novel agents, in allowing better visualization of the physiologic and phenotypic features of a cancer and thereby helping to target radiotherapy and assess response. Full consideration is also given to the ways in which advances in the technologies for delivery of radiation therapy have created new opportunities to treat patients with localized and metastatic disease, highlighting the increasingly important role of image-guided radiotherapy in treating systemic and oligometastatic disease. Further examples of topics considered in the book include the potential value of radiotherapy in enhancing immunotherapy owing to broader immune-stimulatory effects and the application of mathematical and systems biology to radiotherapy.
