About this book

Breast cancer is the most common malignancy among the female population. With advances in systemic therapies and modern radiotherapy techniques, breast cancer patients can have a long life-expectancy. However, it is crucial that radiation therapy is carried out with minimum complications and with the utmost efficiency.

Principles and Practice of Modern Radiotherapy Techniques in Breast Cancer provides practical and current theoretical knowledge to the planning and implementation of breast cancer radiation therapy. All aspects of breast cancer are covered, including epidemiology, molecular and biological basis and integrating systemic therapies during all steps of treatment.

The illustrated section of this book identifies anatomical structures in daily practice by presenting target and critical structures in actual treatment positions. These images show and mark the anatomical points of the patient lying in the position that breast radiation therapy would be performed.

This text serves as a valuable resource for clinicians, residents and fellows practicing and learning breast cancer radiotherapy.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The book is a very useful text for radiotherapists and radiologists, residents, physicists and technicians working in radiotherapy. … this book could be a useful support for all clinicians and surgeons involved in the treatment of breast cancer. … this publication could also be useful for nuclear physicians who want to learn the background, technical and clinical issues concerning the therapy of breast cancer as a basis for their involvement in the best definition of the target in radiotherapy.” (Andrea Vaccaro and Luigi Mansi, European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Vol. 41, 2014)

“The book has in total has 358 pages including the index and is divided into 24 chapters under five main headings. … I found reading these chapters highly informative and useful with all the available evidence in regards to the subject collated and compiled in one place. … I have found this to be a very well illustrated text, easy to read and very informative. … I would definitely recommend this book as a good read to both Surgeons and Oncologists.” (Tasadooq Hussain, Oncology News, Vol. 8 (3), July-August, 2013)

“Haydaroglu and Ozyigit have edited exactly the kind of comprehensive and state-of-the-art textbook supported by practical information that is essential for a practicing radiation oncologist. … editors and authors should be congratulated on their effort to summarize all information relevant to current practice of radiotherapy in breast cancer. The book will be helpful in training and in daily practice of every radiation oncologist and represents a must book for those involved in the treatment of breast cancer.” (P. Dubinsky, Neoplasma, Issue 5, 2013)
