Radiation Medicine Rounds is a trinary, hard cover, periodical designed to provide an up-to-date review of a dedicated radiation medicine topic of interest to clinicians andscientists who are involved in the care of patients receiving radiotherapy. It is intended to serve as both a reference and instructional tool for students, housestaff, fellows, practicing clinicians, medical physicists, cancer biologists, radiobiologists, and interdisciplinary colleagues throughout the oncology spectrum.
With contributions from experts across the U.S., Gynecologic Cancer details the current management of different types of gynecologic cancer. Today the management of gynecologic cancers is multidisciplinary in nature, requiring close collaboration between gynecologic oncologists, medical oncologists, and radiation oncologists. Gynecologic Cancer reviews new therapies in use and under development for gynecologic cancer including novel radiation approaches, the role of chemotherapy and novel biologic agents, new and emerging surgical approaches, and the role of MRI in assessing tumor response in cervical cancer patients. It is a valuable tool for clinicians, nurses, researchers, medical students, residents, and fellows.
