About this Textbook

This book elucidates the radiation therapy protocols and procedures for the management of adult patients presenting with primary benign and malignant central nervous system tumors. With the development of new treatment strategies and rapid advancement of radiation technology, it is crucial for radiation oncologists to maintain and refine their knowledge and skills. Dedicated exclusively to adult CNS radiation oncology, this textbook explores CNS tumors ranging from the common to the esoteric as well as secondary cancers of metastatic origin. The first half of the book is organized anatomically: tumors of the brain, spinal cord, leptomeninges, optic pathway, ocular choroid, and skull base. The second half covers primary CNS lymphoma, rare CNS tumors, metastatic brain disease, vascular conditions of the CNS, radiation-associated complications, and radiation modalities. Each chapter provides guidance on treatment field design, target delineation, and normal critical structure tolerance constraints in the context of the disease being treated. Learning objectives, case studies, and Maintenance of Certification Self-Assessment Continuing Medical Education-style questions and answers are incorporated throughout the book. This is an ideal guide for radiation oncologists, residents, and fellows, but medical students may also find value in the text.

Reviews

“This timely textbook addresses modern developments in radiation therapy technology including image guidance and advances in molecular prognostic and predictive factors in the field of neurological radiation oncology. … The book is well-organized by disease sites—brain, skull base, and spine—which include both benign and malignant tumors. … This book has many strengths, including well-designed descriptive figures, thorough discussion of management strategies and useful self-assessment questions.” (Tony J. C.Wang, Neurosurgery, Vol. 84 (5), May, 2019)
