Over the last 4 years, IMRT, IGRT, SBRT: Advances in the Treatment Planning and Delivery of Radiotherapy has become a standard reference in the field. During this time, however, significant progress in high-precision technologies for the planning and delivery of radiotherapy in cancer treatment has called for a second edition to include these new developments. Thoroughly updated and extended, this new edition offers a comprehensive guide and overview of these new technologies and the many clinical treatment programs that bring them into practical use. Advances in intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT), and 4D and adaptive treatment planning are clearly presented. Target localization and image-guided radiotherapy (IGRT) systems are comprehensively reviewed as well. Clinical tutorials illustrate target definitions for the major cancer sites, and useful techniques for organ motion management are described and compared. There are also several chapters that explore the technical basis and latest clinical experience with stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) and summarize practical treatment recommendations. Furthermore, the significant and increasing contributions of proton therapy to cancer care are also highlighted, alongside the practical allocation of all these new technologies from an economic perspective. As a highlight of this volume, a number of images can be viewed online in time-elapse videos for greater clarity and more dynamic visualizationWritten by leading authorities in the field, this comprehensive volume brings clinical and technical practitioners of radiotherapy fully up to date with the key developments in equipment, technologies and treatment guidelines.
