Provides an evidence-based guide to radiotherapy for head and neck cancer patients
Assists in the selection and delineation of tumor volumes/fields for IMRT/VMAT
Documents in detail at least four illustrative cases for each tumor site
Will help in meeting frequent clinical challenges
This evidence-based guide to the current management of cancer cases at all head and neck sites will assist in the appropriate selection and delineation of tumor volumes/fields for intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), including volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT). Each tumor site-related chapter presents, from the perspective of an academic expert, several actual cases at different stages in order to clarify specific clinical concepts. The coverage includes case presentation, a case-related literature review, patient preparation, simulation, contouring, treatment planning, treatment delivery, and follow-up. The text is accompanied by illustrations ranging from slice-by-slice delineations on planning CT images to finalized plan evaluations based on detailed acceptance criteria.
The book will be of value for residents, fellows, practicing radiation oncologists, and medical physicists interested in clinical radiation oncology. It will facilitate the management of patients with common head and neck cancers without the need for outside referral and will help the reader to meet challenges frequently encountered in clinical practice.
