Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Sharon M. Hummel, RTT, CMD (University of Washington Medical Center)
Description: This is a thorough review of current trends in radiation therapy. The focus on three-dimensional treatment planning and its application for specific disease sites is clearly visualized with the use of black-and-white photographs. Contributors from radiation therapy centers present the standard of care in radiation oncology. This is the third edition of this publication; the previous edition was released in 1992.
Purpose: While maintaining the original format, the purpose of this edition is to present the advancements in radiation therapy as well as update chapters from the 1992 edition. This newest edition is much needed. The rapidly changing technology of three-dimensional radiation therapy needs its newest developments represented.
Audience: The target audience is radiation oncology physicians, fellows, and residents. It is also recommended reading for Medical Dosimetry Board Certification exams, and may be a useful reference for radiation therapists and clinical physicists.
Features: The advances of three-dimensional technology and the application of three-dimensional treatment planning to specific disease sites are well presented in this edition. The need for three-dimensional planning, precise patient positioning, and the future developments of radiation therapy are defined. The quality of the diagrams and photos are impressive and allow for easy understanding of the three-dimensional world of radiation therapy. Three-dimensional terms that have become the standard of care are explained. While some basic clinical information is presented for each of the tumor sites, the focus and strength of this book is in the integration of imaging and computer technology as applied to contemporary delivery of radiotherapy.
Assessment: At times a contributor uses dated terminology such as defining a three-dimensional target as "cancerous cells" rather than using ICRU specifications of target volumes as explained within another chapter. Aside from these few inconsistencies, this book is a valuable reference for the practitioner of radiation therapy.

A resource for radiation oncologists and other professionals in the field. Chapters are arranged in sections on basic concepts in treatment planning, and practical clinical considerations, with coverage of areas including chemoirradiation, electron beam therapy, stereotactic radiosurgery and radiotherapy, and the physics of high dose rate brachytherapy.
