About this book

In this book, leading experts in the dermatological and oncological field describe the use of radiation therapy for the treatment of the full range of dermatological malignancies – including basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, cutaneous lymphomas, Kaposi's sarcoma, melanoma, and Merkel cell tumor – as well as those precancerous lesions and non-malignant dermatological disorders which are amenable to radiation therapy. In each case the specific indications for the use of radiotherapy and its application are clearly explained with the aid of numerous high-quality illustrations. In addition, the book provides a concise introduction to physical and radiobiological principles, selection of radiation factors, dose definitions, radiation reactions, and risk assessments. The new edition has been thoroughly revised and updated to reflect advances in practical knowledge and clinical practice. It will be an invaluable source of information on the management of skin tumors and related non-malignant disorders for both dermatologists, oncologists and radiation oncologists.

Reviews

“The purpose is to inform dermatologists and radiation oncologists about the current state of knowledge on using radiation therapy to treat dermatological diseases. … The audience is dermatologists and radiation oncologists. … This is a specialty interest book. For dermatologists who use radiation therapy in their practice, this reference should definitely be included on their reading list.” (Patricia Wong, Doody’s Book Reviews, August, 2015)
