Overview

This volume discusses the background and various clinical applications of radiation therapy in the treatment of non-malignant diseases. It documents the radiobiological and physical principles of treatment and the rationale underlying the use of radiotherapy for various disorders of the CNS, head and neck, eye, skin and soft tissues, bone and joints, and vascular system. In so doing, it draws attention to and elucidates the scope for application of radiotherapy beyond the treatment of malignancies. Both the risks and the benefits of such treatment are fully considered, the former ranging from minor clinical problems to life-threatening diseases.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Ann Pittier, MD (University of Washington Medical Center)
Description: This all-inclusive book addressing benign conditions that can be treated with radiation covers first principles for the radiobiology and physics associated with treatment and its delivery and then details the conditions, treatment options, and techniques of therapy.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide readers with current indications, rationale, and the technical "how to" for the treatment of benign conditions with radiotherapy. This book clearly meets those objectives in a clear, concise, and comprehensive manner.
Audience: According to the authors, the book is designed for practitioners and all medical specialists, particularly radiation oncologists, orthopedists, surgeons, and ophthalmologists. In addition, it will be an invaluable resource for residents in these fields.
Features: This book provides an evidence-based approach and comprehensive understanding of the roll of radiation in nonmalignant disorders and lays the framework for understanding the disease in the multidisciplinary setting. It addresses mechanism of action for treatment options and a consensus for treatment approaches. It further highlights the areas of weakness in terms of evidence, but supplants expert opinion when necessary. This book fills a much needed gap in the repertoire of books available in the radiation field. It pulls together an updated, evidence-based approach and addresses the historic background that leads to the current recommendations of treatment. Each section brings together an exhaustive literature review for clinicians to have at their fingertips. The authors include internationally renowned specialists at the top of their field and they provide valuable insight to students, residents, and clinicians in radiation oncology and specialists who routinely manage these difficult cases (including neurosurgeons, dermatologists, ophthalmologists, and podiatrists). This book broadens the scope of options for specialists and the radiation oncologists alike. Two broad sections covering principles and clinical applications constitute the framework of this book. The first section forms the foundation of knowledge for a thorough understanding behind radiotherapeutic management. The clinical section organized by system is relevant for treatment care. Each chapter is well organized and allows for quick reference by breaking down the sections into concepts. Color pictures, tables, and figures illustrate the main points and a bulleted summary ends each chapter.
Assessment: This is an important addition to the literature for radiation oncologists as well as for a broad range of specialists. This is an outstanding resource for residents and clinicians as it brings together an exhaustive fund of knowledge in an area neglected by our specialty. It broadens the scope of management for many diseases and guides management, from conservative to aggressive.

"The chapter in the textbook entitled Radiotherapy for Non-Malignant Disorders that covers the treatment of nonmalignant central nervous system (CNS) disorders by using ionizing radiation is a well-written, concise, and organized accounting of the current state of the art for physicians and residents in neurosurgery, neurology, neuro-oncology, medical physics, and radiation oncology. … is an excellent reference guide for any clinical member of the treatment team for these diseases." (American Journal of Neuroradiology, Vol. 29, November-December, 2008)
