Handbook of Evidence-Based Radiation Oncology 2nd Edition PDF Download Ebook. Eric Hansen and Mack Roach III concisely summarize treatment guidelines, staging, and pertinent studies for each organ system/pathology. The primary audience is radiation oncology physicians, both residents and senior level physicians, and medical students.

Building on the success of this book’s first edition, Dr. Eric Hansen and Dr. Mack Roach have updated, revised, and expanded the Handbook of Evidence-based Radiation Oncology, a portable reference that utilizes evidence-based medicine as the basis for practical treatment recommendations and guidelines. Organized by body site, concise clinical chapters provide easy access to critical information.

Important “pearls” of epidemiology, anatomy, pathology, and clinical presentation are highlighted. Key facets of the work-up are listed, followed by staging and/or risk classification systems. Treatment recommendations are discussed based on stage, histology, and/or risk classification. Brief summaries of key trials and studies provide rationale for the recommendations. Practical guidelines for radiation techniques are described.

The book is organized according to organ system and focuses on treatment guidelines, staging, and the pertinent literature that supports current practice. A section in each chapter details clinical pearls and, toward the end of each chapter, practical instructions are provided for patient set-up for simulation, dose/fractionation schema, acute/chronic toxicities, and dose-limiting structures. The second edition is even more organized with tabs on pages and color highlights making it easier to find the desired information.

This is a must-have handbook for any radiation oncology resident or student. It is also a very helpful guide for attending physicians. It will, however, require updating every two to three years to remain the valuable resource that it is

Finally, complications and follow-up guidelines are outlined. Updates from the first edition include brand new color figures and color contouring mini-atlases for head and neck, gastrointestinal, prostate, and gynecological tumors; redesigned tables for increased readability; new chapters on management of the neck and unknown primary, clinical radiobiology, and pediatric malignancies and benign conditions; and new appendices including the American College of Radiology guidelines for administration of IV contrast.
