Long established as a staple reference for all radiation oncologists, Radiotherapy for Head and Neck Cancers: Indications and Techniques is now in its Third Edition. This completely updated edition presents the state-of-the-art protocols currently used at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center and thoroughly explains the principles, nomenclature, and clinical use of intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT). New full-color illustrations have been added throughout the book.

The first section discusses the practical aspects of external beam therapy, brachytherapy, and endocavitary beam therapy and offers guidelines on patient care before and during radiotherapy. The second section provides detailed coverage of site-specific indications and techniques.

Review:

International Journal of Radiation Oncology Biology Physics, Volume 65, Issue 2 -- "The Third Edition has been written and updated by two premier head-and-neck radiation oncologists. It would be valuable to the clinician who is establishing a head-and-neck cancer practice and the busy practicing clinician who does not treat a large volume of head-and-neck cancer patients. The book is an excellent quick reference guide that covers the most important basic aspects of head-and-neck radiation oncology. The book is well written, concise, thoughtful, and balanced. Valuable case illustrations are included that present examples of clinical scenarios, simulation films with portal design, target volumes, and dosimetry including intensity-modulated radiation therapy. I would recommend that every radiation oncology resident or training program have a copy of this book. I would advise all residents read this book before or during their first rotation on the head-and-neck service. It would also be a valuable resource for preparing for the oral board and recertification examination."
