Pediatric Radiotherapy Planning and Treatment + Updates, 1ed
By becoming knowledgeable about optimal treatment methods designed specifically for childhood cancers, members of a radiotherapy team can help improve both pediatric cancer survival statistics and patients’ quality of life. Pediatric Radiotherapy Planning and Treatment is the first single, focused resource available for health care providers to accurately plan and deliver radiation therapy to children.
The first section of the book discusses the statistics of pediatric cancer incidence and survival. It also reviews the literature on radiation-induced secondary malignancies, addressing the use of intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) in children.
The second section presents disease-specific chapters. Each chapter in this section gives a clinical overview of the disease, describes treatment planning and delivery concepts and guidance, and surveys late effects and organ tolerance doses. Many of the techniques presented can be readily translated to any radiotherapy department. The book also explores the historical background underpinning current treatment paradigms, which reveals the tremendous creativity of radiation oncologists and physicists in addressing difficult treatment dilemmas.
Medical physicists, dosimetrists, radiation oncologists, and others in a pediatric radiotherapy team must understand pediatric cancers and know how to accurately and safely implement optimal treatments to minimize late effects and maximize the chance for cure or palliation. The methods and clinical background in this book help these health care providers―even those with no formal training in pediatric radiotherapy―recognize the differences between pediatric cancers and adult cancers and then design and administer an appropriate treatment plan.
- Provides a systematic and comprehensive guide to understanding childhood cancers
- Gives treatment planning guidance, including treatment volume, planning techniques, and technical considerations, for each type of pediatric cancer
- Examines the risks and benefits of IMRT in children
- Discusses the late effects of radiation in treating leukemia, Hodgkin lymphoma, CNS tumors, neuroblastoma, Wilms’ tumor, soft tissue and bone sarcoma, and retinoblastoma
- Includes important historical and recent references at the end of each chapter
- Illustrates the treatments through numerous images in the text and on the book’s CRC Press web page
“This is a very well-written and -organized book covering the planning and delivery aspects unique to pediatric radiotherapy. The author is a respected and well-known medical physicist with extensive pediatric radiotherapy experience. … a very useful book for any clinical physicist treating pediatric cases and seeking contextual and historical perspective. … a great reference for medical physicists who may not see many pediatric cases and can look to this text as a one-stop shop for not only a comprehensive overview, but detailed explanation for specific pediatric disease sites. Overall, it is a great addition to the reference library of any radiation therapy physicist.”
