Overview

Computer applications in radiotherapy have multiplied enormously over the past three decades. This guidebook explores critical issues in the design and delivery of computerized radiotherapy, including CT simulation, CT/MRI integration, 3-D treatment planning, plan optimization, on-line portal imaging, multileaf collimation, dose intensity modulation and computerized treatment delivery. A comprehensive overview of these techniques is presented by an outstanding faculty. Contributors discuss the latest developments in clinical treatment with irradiation, for brain, head and neck, lung, gastrointestinal, prostate and other major cancer sites. This practical and clinically-oriented volume is especially intended for radiotherapy clinical and technical practitioners - physicans, physicists, radiation technology therapists, and dosimetrists - as well as for all oncologists interested in recent major advances in radiation oncology.
