About this book

Accelerated partial breast irradiation (APBI) is being rapidly introduced into the clinical management of early breast cancer. APBI, in fact, encompasses a number of different techniques and approaches that include brachytherapy, intraoperative, and external beam techniques. There is currently no single source that describes these techniques and their clinical implementation. This text is a concise handbook designed to assist the clinician in the implementation of APBI. This includes a review of the principles that underlie APBI, a practical and detailed description of each technique for APBI, a review of current clinical results of APBI, and a review of the incidence and management of treatment related complications.

Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

“This second edition progresses naturally from background on accelerated partial breast irradiation (APBI) and the basic science related to this treatment … . The target audience includes radiation oncology providers: physicians, trainees, radiation nurse practitioners, and students. It also could be of service to other specialists such as surgeons and medical oncologists who care for breast cancer patients. The authors are nationally renowned for their expertise on this subject. … This is an excellent textbook and resource for radiation oncologists in practice and in training.” (Ralph Ermoian, Doody’s Review Service, October, 2010)
