About this book

Radiation Oncology: An Evidence-Based Approach (ROEBA) is a reference book designed to enable radiation oncologists, including those in training, to make diagnostic and treatment decisions on the basis of the best available scientific evidence. Ease of use is ensured by a structured, reader-friendly format that offers rapid access to evidence-based recommendations. ROEBA’s orientation is entirely practical, in that the focus is solely on diagnostic/staging and treatment issues. Detailed diagnostic and therapeutic guidelines are provided for multidisciplinary cancer management as well as radiation therapy techniques. The evidence underlying each recommendation is clearly and concisely explained, and the strength of the recommendations and
evidence is systemically graded. Furthermore, diagnostic and treatment algorithms are provided for commonly diagnosed cancers, including non-small-cell lung cancer, small-cell lung cancer, most gastrointestinal and genitourinary tumors, and certain head and neck cancers. This ground-breaking text on radiation oncology is an essential tool for physicians in their daily clinical practice.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This is a comprehensive overview of diagnosis and management of cancer patients from the perspective of a radiation oncologist. … This will be useful to a wide spectrum of practitioners in radiation oncology. It serves as a good refresher to those with a great deal experience and provides a useful data-driven framework of diagnosis and management for those less experienced in the field. … This is an excellent book, worthy of reading cover to cover and then keeping as a reference." (Christopher Loiselle, Doody’s Review Services, January, 2009)

"The aim of the book is to present to the reader – namely radiotherapy experts or radiotherapists in training as well as clinicians – an evidence-based approach to the subject. The concept of evidence-based medicine and radiotherapy is explained well … . In summary the goal of this book is achieved and surely it will be an important source book in the daily practice, improving results in the treatment of cancer patients aiding them in their fight against disease and adding to their well-being." (Giampiero Beluffi, La Radiologia Media, Vol. 114, 2009)

“First, the layout of each subject is up to date … . Second, several innovative techniques are used throughout the book to good effect … . excellent for undergraduates and practicing post-graduates. … These two attributes lift this book above other standard texts. … all in all a ‘must’ purchase for individuals and department libraries.” (P. N. Plowman, RAD Magazine, December, 2009)
