About this book

This portable reference bases practical treatment recommendations and guidelines on evidence-based medicine. The concise clinical chapters are organized by body site for easy access to critical information, highlighting "pearls" of epidemiology, anatomy, pathology, and clinical presentation. Key facets of the work-up are listed, followed by staging and risk classification systems. Discussion of treatment recommendations is based on stage, histology, and risk classification, with summaries of key trials and studies providing rationale. Each chapter outlines possible complications and follow-up guidelines. Appendices cover performance status scales, radionucleotides used in brachytherapy, radiation safety, tumor markers, immunophenotyping and cytogenetics, and commonly prescribed drugs.

Written for:

Radiation oncologists, radiation oncology residents, medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, medical students, and radiation therapists
