This is the second, completely updated edition of a comprehensive book in which many of the world's leading lung cancer specialists discuss the recent advances in the radiation oncology of lung cancer and reflect on the latest research findings. The first three sections cover the basic science of lung cancer, clinical investigations, including histology and staging, and a wide range of fundamental treatment considerations. Current treatment strategies for small cell and non-small cell lung cancer are then explained and evaluated in detail, with due attention to novel approaches that promise further improvements in outcome. The various types of treatment-related toxicity are discussed, and quality of life studies and prognostic factors are also considered. After evaluating the latest technological and biological advances, including IMRT, IMAT, cyber knife treatment, and tomotherapy, the book concludes by thorough consideration of specific aspects of clinical research in lung cancer.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews of the second edition:

"This important and pace-keeping text book comes to life under the wise editorial guidance of Prof. Jeremic who ... coordinates a large cohort of well-known international experts in the field; it is intended to offer the reader and most of all, those directly involved in fighting lung cancer with the above reported weapons, important theoretical, diagnostic, efficient discussion tools with the hope that it might set the stage for further improvements, and help consolidate researchers' efforts." (Giampiero Beluffi, La radiologia medica, Vol. 118, 2013)

"This is a very comprehensive textbook that tackles an important topic that is increasingly getting more popular and complex. It starts with the basic science regarding lung cancer and the role of angiogenesis and how to understand the role of the current receptor status. ... The textbook goes on to explain the role of surgery in lung cancer and in a comprehensive way covers radiotherapy treatment. ... this is a valuable textbook which is very important for any radiation oncologist to have in the library." (Hany Eldeeb, RAD Magazine, August, 2012)
