This book is intended to bring forward the recent advancements in the field of radiation oncology. It presents the experience of several researchers who dedicate many hours a day to not only treat patients but also assess the physical aspects of newer radiotherapy facilities.

This textbook is designed to help the busy radiation oncologist to accurately and confidently delineate tumor volumes for conformal radiation therapy (including IMRT). The book provides an atlas of clinical target volumes (CTVs) for commonly encountered cancers, with each chapter illustrating CTV.

Radiation Therapy Alone. RT as the sole therapy is used in the treatment of localized tumors, such as early-stage cancer of the larynx or prostate; non-melanoma skin cancer; head and neck cancers; and radiosensitive tumor types, such as seminoma and lymphomas (Hoppe and others ; Motzer and others ).In more advanced disease stages, RT is used before, during, or after surgery and is Cited by: The first section of the book, comprising chapters 1 thro are intended for students of diagnostic radiology, nuclear medicine, and radiation oncology.
