Radiation Oncology Primer and Review describes the fundamental concepts, nomenclature and definitions of the field of radiation oncology that every trainee or practitioner needs to know. Divided into three sections, Radiation Oncology Primer and Review covers basic science, clinical science, and technical and planning issues to give the trainee a full overview of the core knowledge base of the field.

Co-written by a former radiation oncology residency program director and a team of radiation oncology residents, the book is organized in concise sections and is amply illustrated to highlight key points and help the reader understand and retain major concepts. Treatment approaches consistent with published clinical trial protocols that define control/standard of care/consensus radiation treatment are included. In addition to serving as a primary introduction to the field, the book also offers a short review of fundamental concepts for the senior resident prior to written or oral examinations, and is a useful resource for the radiation oncology educator to develop teaching plans and quizzes. Chapter organization is based on the International Atomic Energy Agency Syllabus for the Education and Training of Radiation Oncologists, the syllabus endorsed by both the American Society for Radiation Oncology and the European Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology.

Features of Radiation Oncology Primer and Review:

Integrates basic science, clinical science and technical concepts to provide the trainee with a complete introduction to the field of radiation oncologyIs consistent with accepted training syllabus for radiation oncology professionalsOffers a concise presentation with illustrations highlighting key poiintsProvides key points for study and reviewsIncludes treatment approaches consistent with published clinical trial protocols that define control/standard of care/consensus radiation treatmentIs a valuable review resource for board review

The AJCC Cancer Staging Manual and Handbook, prepared by the American Joint Committee on Cancer, are used by physicians and health care professionals throughout the world to facilitate the uniform description of neoplastic diseases. Proper classification and staging allow the physician to determine treatment more appropriately, evaluate results of management more reliably, and compare worldwide statistics reported from various institutions on a local, regional, and national basis more confidently. The fully revised and updated Sixth Edition of the AJCC Cancer Staging Manual brings together all currently available information on staging of cancer at various anatomic sites and incorporates newly acquired knowledge on the etiology and pathology of cancer. As more is learned, cancer staging must adapt to accommodate new information and this revised edition provides an evidence-based staging system based upon the established tenets of TNM classification. All of the TNM staging information included in the Sixth Edition is uniform between the AJCC and the UICC (International Union Against Cancer). Organized by disease site into 48 comprehensive chapters, the Sixth Edition features much-anticipated, major revisions to the chapters on melanoma and breast cancer. Numerous new line drawings illustrate key anatomic sites throughout the text. Additional user-friendly enhancements include: * a concise summary of changes in the TNM classification since the previous edition at the start of every chapter * color-coordinated page tabs for easy access between chapters * a CD-ROM packaged with each Manual containing printable copies of each of the book's 45 Staging Forms for both individual and institutional use * a comprehensive index The Sixth Edition of the AJCC Cancer Staging Manual and Handbook remains the essential reference for oncologists, pathologists, surgeons, cancer registrars, and medical professionals worldwide to assure that all those taking care of cancer patients will be trained in the language of cancer staging
