Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy: A Clinical Perspective
by Arno Mundt (Editor), John Roeske (Editor)
- This work effectively responds to the pressing need for a clinically-oriented textbook that focuses on all aspects of intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT). Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy: A Clinical Perspective is divided into three sections: Fundamentals, Clinical Implementation, and Clinical Sites. The book aims to provide a practical approach oriented text for radiation oncologists and physicists interested in commencing or expanding an IMRT program. It discusses the fundamentals of IMRT including physics and biology and provides a site-by-site review (i.e. breast, prostate, etc) of IMRT treatment techniques and outcomes with practical clinical examples. The content reviews published IMRT outcome studies and suggests possible future directions for IMRT research.
