Basic Radiation Oncology is an all-in-one book, encompassing the essential aspects of radiation physics, radiobiology, and clinical radiation oncology. A complete section is devoted to each of these fields. In the first two sections, concepts that are crucial in radiation physics and radiobiology are reviewed in depth. The third section describes radiation treatment regimens appropriate for the main cancer sites and tumor types. The book has been designed to ensure that the reader will find it easy to use. Many "pearl boxes" are used to summarize the most information, and there are more than 350 helpful illustrations, the majority of them in color. In addition, key studies are included at the end of each clinical chapter. Basic Radiation Oncology will meet the need for a practical, up-to-date, bedside-oriented radiation oncology book. It will be extremely useful for residents, fellows, and clinicians in the fields of radiation, medical, and surgical oncology, as well as for medical students, physicians, and medical physicists with an interest in clinical oncology.Table of contents Section I: Radiation Physics.- Atom.-Radiation.-Ionizing Radiation.-Interactions of Radiation with Material.-Characteristic Features of X-rays.- Characteristic Features of Electrons.-Units of Ionizing Radiation.-Radiation Machines.-Measurement of Ionizing Radiation.-Radiation Dosimetry.-Beam Modulators.-Pearl Boxes.- SECTION II: Radiobiology.- Cell Biology and Carcinogenesis.- Cellular Effects of Radiation.- Factors affecting biological effects of ionizing radiation.- Target Theory.- Cell Survival Curves.- Tissue and Organ Response to Radiation.- Stochastic and Deterministic Effect.- Tumor Response to Radiation.- 5 R of Radiation.- Fractionation.- Radiation Protection.- Pearl Boxes.- SECTION III: Clinical Radiation Oncology.- Introduction and Terminologies.- Central Nervous System Tumors.- Head and Neck Cancers.-Lung Cancer.- Breast Cancer.- Genitourinary System Tumors.-Gynecological Cancers.- Gastrointestinal System Tumors.- Soft Tissue Sarcomas.- Skin Cancers.- Lymphomas and Total Body Radiation
