This book serves as a practical guide for the prevention and treatment of radiation dermatitis. Skin toxicity caused by radiation treatment is common among cancer patients and minimizing the frequency and severity of these reactions improves quality of life and prevents interruptions that can compromise local-regional control. Each chapter is devoted to a specific disease site, such as the head and neck, breast, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, gynecologic, and central nervous system. Pediatric malignancies and wound care for locally advanced cancers are also discussed. For each topic, the range and frequency of the observed skin reactions, factors influencing these reactions, the typical course of each reaction and its resolution, and the interventions used are presented. This book provides evidence where it exists for the specific interventions and an extensive illustration program depicts the various reactions and their response to treatment protocols. Skin Care in Radiation Oncology: A Practical Guide presents a framework for patient care in an era of advancing technology and systemic and targeted therapies and is a valuable resource for radiation oncologists, dermatologists, and residents.

The third edition of Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy was written to enhance the reader’s understanding of the cutting-edge technology of Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy. It is designed to both update old readers and inform new readers about the complexities and details of clinical management. This completely updated edition provides a step-by-step, practical approach to the use of IMRT in the evaluation and treatment of cancer patients. Because of IMRT’s ability to employ individually controlled beamlets, it is an extremely promising technique, especially when paired with CT, PET, and/or MRI. With these improved procedures, doctors and clinicians will be able to take high resolution images of tumors while minimizing dosages to surrounding tissue. In order to focus on the most up to date IMRT techniques, the introductory chapters have been condensed to provide a brief overview of IMRT physics, mechanics and quality assurance, and also CT and MR imaging. To help assist in clinical decision-making it provides the reader with more than 700 full-color illustrations, IMRT tables and clear, straightforward descriptions that address a range of tumor types and sites including head and neck, urinary, and gynecologic cancers.
