Overview

Radiation Oncology: An Evidence-Based Approach (ROEBA) is a reference book designed to enable radiation oncologists, including those in training, to make diagnostic and treatment decisions on the basis of the best available scientific evidence. Ease of use is ensured by a structured, reader-friendly format that offers rapid access to evidence-based recommendations. ROEBA’s orientation is entirely practical, in that the focus is solely on diagnostic/staging and treatment issues. Detailed diagnostic and therapeutic guidelines are provided for multidisciplinary cancer management as well as radiation therapy techniques. The evidence underlying each recommendation is clearly and concisely explained, and the strength of the recommendations and
evidence is systemically graded. Furthermore, diagnostic and treatment algorithms are provided for commonly diagnosed cancers, including non-small-cell lung cancer, small-cell lung cancer, most gastrointestinal and genitourinary tumors, and certain head and neck cancers. This ground-breaking text on radiation oncology is an essential tool for physicians in their daily clinical practice.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"This is a comprehensive overview of diagnosis and management of cancer patients from the perspective of a radiation oncologist. … This will be useful to a wide spectrum of practitioners in radiation oncology. It serves as a good refresher to those with a great deal experience and provides a useful data-driven framework of diagnosis and management for those less experienced in the field. … This is an excellent book, worthy of reading cover to cover and then keeping as a reference." (Christopher Loiselle, Doody’s Review Services, January, 2009)

"The aim of the book is to present to the reader – namely radiotherapy experts or radiotherapists in training as well as clinicians – an evidence-based approach to the subject. The concept of evidence-based medicine and radiotherapy is explained well … . In summary the goal of this book is achieved and surely it will be an important source book in the daily practice, improving results in the treatment of cancer patients aiding them in their fight against disease and adding to their well-being." (Giampiero Beluffi, La Radiologia Media, Vol. 114, 2009)

“First, the layout of each subject is up to date … . Second, several innovative techniques are used throughout the book to good effect … . excellent for undergraduates and practicing post-graduates. … These two attributes lift this book above other standard texts. … all in all a ‘must’ purchase for individuals and department libraries.” (P. N. Plowman, RAD Magazine, December, 2009)

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Christopher Loiselle, MD (University of Washington Medical Center)
Description: This is a comprehensive overview of diagnosis and management of cancer patients from the perspective of a radiation oncologist. The book focuses on providing the most up-to-date references and current guidelines in a framework that assesses the relevant hierarchy of evidence. Each chapter is devoted to an individual cancer site, assessing the type of information underpinning management guidelines. The book also provides key management points, similar to a handbook.
Purpose: It is designed to provide a concise, evidence-based approach to the management of cancer patients, with a focus on radiation treatment strategies. Clinicians can use it as a study tool and reference to efficiently evaluate pertinent treatment recommendations as well as glean the relative strength of the recommendation and the strength of the underlying evidence in the medical literature. The book achieves its goals with refreshing brevity that keeps the book small enough to carry.
Audience: This will be useful to a wide spectrum of practitioners in radiation oncology. It serves as a good refresher to those with a great deal of experience and provides a useful data-driven framework of diagnosis and management for those less experienced in the field. The series editors have tapped contributors from the U.S. and international centers with a wide variety of expertise to successfully pull together a book that is straightforward at meeting its goals and consistent in its strategy from chapter to chapter.
Features: The book covers cancer scenarios most often encountered by radiation oncologists, across all sites and organ systems. Each chapter is dedicated to a cancer anatomic or physiologic site. As with other books in this series, the book successfully employs a highlighted block at the beginning of each chapter summarizing key points. Each chapter begins with an outline of initial management pertaining to diagnosis, staging, and prognosis. Following this background is a data-driven discussion of the evidence underlying radiation therapy as well as a discussion and integration of key studies pertaining to surgery, chemotherapy, and multimodality care. The book is in full color - the chapters make excellent use of 3D axial, coronal, and sagittal imaging with color overlays to depict key elements of radiation therapy planning, particularly for techniques like IMRT. Also provided are easy to reference tables that summarize key studies and factors important in radiation planning, e.g. normal tissue constraints.
Assessment: This is an excellent book, worthy of reading cover to cover and then keeping as a reference. It strikes a nice balance between a handbook and a comprehensive textbook.
