Established since 1986 as the definitive text and reference on use of radiation therapy for childhood cancer, "Pediatric Radiation Oncology" is now in its thoroughly revised and updated Fifth Edition. This edition reviews all significant recent clinical trials - including, for the first time, significant European clinical trials - and provides increased coverage of international and Third World issues. The latest cancer staging guidelines are included. New chapters cover psychosocial aspects of radiotherapy for the child and family and medical management of pain, nausea, nutritional problems, and blood count depression in the child with cancer. This edition also has full-color illustrations throughout. Each specific tumor type is covered in a chapter that can be read in one sitting. For each tumor type, this book provides complete information on diagnostic techniques, staging, treatment strategy, and when and how to employ radiation therapy. The authors discuss current patient management options and provide recommendations on the best course of treatment. A companion website includes the full text and an image bank.
