Radiotherapy in Prostate Cancer : Innovative Techniques and Current Controversies Hardback

Edited by Hans Geinitz, Mack, III Roach, Nicholas van As

Part of the Medical Radiology series

Description

Today, the arsenal of "high-precision" or "targeted" radiotherapy includes a variety of techniques and approaches that, like the pieces of a puzzle, need to be put together to provide the prostate cancer patient with high-level optimized radiation treatment.

This book examines in detail the role of these innovative radiation techniques in the management of prostate cancer.

In addition, a variety of current controversies regarding treatment are carefully explored, including whether prophylactic treatment of the pelvic lymphatics is essential, the magnitude of the effect of dose escalation, whether a benefit accrues from hypofractionation, and what evidence exists for the superiority of protons or heavy ions.

Radiotherapy in Prostate Cancer: Innovative Techniques and Current Controversies is intended for both radiation oncologists and urologists with an interest in the up-to-date capabilities of modern radiation oncology for the treatment of prostate cancer.
