Clinical Fundamentals for Radiation Oncologists    

Clinical Fundamentals for Radiation Oncology Residents, Second Edition Now Available

This updated edition of Clinical Fundamentals for Radiation Oncologists continues to provide current, concise and practical information, not only for radiation oncology residents but also for practicing radiation oncologists. 

The book discusses basic radiation sciences, radiation therapy and management for radiation therapy complications. It also covers IMRT techniques for the common cancer sites, 2010 Quantec guidelines and the latest, 7th edition, AJCC staging system. New color photos with up-to-date treatment recommendations and evidence-based studies make this book a must read for all radiation oncology residents and physicians.

Clinical Fundamentals for Radiation Oncologists, Dr. Murshed    

Clinical Fundamentals for Radiation Oncology Residents

This concise, to-the-point handbook was conceived by the author when he found he needed to compile the large amount of cancer management information available when studying for his own board certification. The resulting book provides quick access to a wealth of information.

For each of the cancer sites, there is an introduction of the known risk factors; the symptoms, signs, and investigations needed for the diagnosis, and the treatment that’s indicated. Also included are radiation treatment techniques and, at the end of each chapter, there is an annotated bibliography of the relevant studies that provide a clear rationale for the recommended treatments.

Practical Essentials of Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy

Chapter “IMRT for Lung Cancers.” Komaki R, Liu H, Murshed H.
Practical Essentials of Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy.
Published Lippincott Williams and Wilkins, September 2004

The primary objective of this book is to teach residents, fellows, and clinicians in radiation oncology how to incorporate intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) into their practice. IMRT has proven to be an extremely effective treatment modality for head and neck cancers. It is now being used effectively in other sites, including, prostate, breast, lung, gynecological, the cervix, the central nervous system, and lymph nodes. The book will provide in a consistent format an overview of the natural course, lymph node spread, diagnostic criteria, and therapeutic options for each cancer subsite.
