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.
