This handbook serves as a portable reference that utilizes evidence-based medicine as the basis for practical treatment recommendations and guidelines. Organized by body site, concise clinical chapters provide easy access to critical information. Important 'pearls' of epidemiology, anatomy, pathology, and clinical presentation are highlighted. Key facets of the work-up are listed, followed by staging and/or risk classification systems. Treatment recommendations are discussed based on stage, histology, and/or risk classification. Brief summaries of key trials and studies provide rationale for the recommendations. Practical guidelines for radiation techniques are described. Finally, complications and follow-up guidelines are outlined. Appendices are included as well to allow quick reference to information on performance status scales, radionucleotides used in brachytherapy, radiation safety, tumor markers, immunophenotyping and cytogenetics, and commonly prescribed drugs. This revised edition includes new color contouring mini-atlases for head and neck, gastrointestinal, prostate, and gynecological tumors.
