The primary objective of this book is to teach trainees, fellows and clinicians in radiation oncology how to incorporate IMRT into their practice.

IMRT has proven to be an extremely effective treatment modality for head and neck cancers. It is now being used effectively in other sites, including, prostate, breast, lung, GYN, the cervix, CNS and lymph nodes.

The book will provide in a consistent format an overview of the natural course, lymph node spread, diagnostic criteria, and therapeutic options for each cancer sub site.
