All chapters represent a joint collaboration between residents and staff radiation oncologists, in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the Cleveland Clinic. Throughout the Handbook, the focus is on a series of steps to follow in order to successfully complete effective radiotherapy planning. Sections are organized by body site or system, whichever proved best for consistency in presenting the general principles of planning. Also included are specialized topics such as palliative therapy and pediatrics. After a discussion of general planning requirements, each specific subsite within a given section then provides more specific details on approaches to radiotherapy planning.
Illustrated throughout with over 200 images, the Handbook will be a valuable tool for every Radiation Oncology practitioner or trainee.
