Table of Contents Summary Rapid advances in nanotechnology have enabled the fabrication of nanoparticles from various materials with different shapes, sizes, and properties, and efforts are ongoing to exploit these materials for practical clinical applications. Nanotechnology is particularly relevant in the field of oncology, as the leaky and chaotic vasculature of tumors—a hallmark of unrestrained growth—results in the passive accumulation of nanoparticles within tumors. Cancer Nanotechnology: Principles and Applications in Radiation Oncology is a compilation of research in the arena of nanoparticles and radiation oncology, which lies at the intersection of disciplines as diverse as clinical radiation oncology, radiation physics and biology, nanotechnology, materials science, and biomedical engineering. The book provides a comprehensive, cross-disciplinary survey of basic principles, research techniques, and outcomes with the goals of eventual clinical translation. Coverage includes A general introduction to fabrication, preferential tumor targeting, and imaging of nanoparticles The specific applications of nanomaterials in the realms of radiation therapy, hyperthermia, thermal therapy, and normal tissue protection from radiation exposure Outlooks for future research and clinical translation including regulatory issues for ultimate use of nanomaterials in humans Reflecting profound advances in the application of nanotechnology to radiation oncology, this comprehensive volume demonstrates how the unique physicochemical properties of nanoparticles lead to novel strategies for cancer treatment and detection. Along with various computational and experimental techniques, each chapter highlights the most promising approaches to the use of nanoparticles for radiation response modulation. Pattani and James W.

In the past 6 years, radiotherapy technique has evolved rapidly and this book does a fine job in documenting these changes, aided by 71 colour plates to illustrate the text. The book is divided into four sections: radiation physics and biology, imaging, clinical radiation oncology and emerging radiation modalities. It is well organised with the general principles behind radiotherapy being well explained and illustrated.

However, this was where I found the only publishing error apparent to me — an important omission of text pertaining to the late effects of hybrid accelerated fractionation regimens. The overview on chemotherapy and radiotherapy also offers a well-written update on the evidence for chemoradiation and the biological mechanisms of interaction of the two modalities of treatment.

The chapter devoted to immobilisation and simulation is excellent, with a clear and logical survey of the principles which will be useful to anyone starting out in radiotherapy. One of the main strengths of the book is the emphasis on imaging.

In recent years, radiation oncologists have been able to use many imaging modalities to help identify the tumour or tumour bed they will be delivering the radiotherapy to. The images acquired from a patient form the basis on which the radiotherapy plan is produced and target definition has developed from a two-dimensional concept to a 3D one.

Textbook of Radiation Oncology

Reflecting the increasing emphasis on interpreting images for radiotherapy planning, there is a very useful overview of imaging in oncology as well as a whole section devoted to imaging, divided up into site-specific chapters. This will be most useful to anyone with an interest in oncology.

Novel imaging approaches such as multimodality image registration and fusion are also covered in depth, with some excellent supporting colour plates and illustrations. The site-specific chapters in the section devoted to clinical radiation oncology follow a standard layout for most chapters, with sections on incidence, anatomy, pathology, clinical presentation, routes of spread, diagnostic studies, staging, prognostic factors and standard therapeutic approaches.

The editors are true to their word and there is a definite emphasis on first-line treatment.

There is, relatively, little information given in the treatment of recurrent disease and salvage treatment. While this was the remit of the book, many patients do relapse despite excellent treatment, and many oncologists are faced with this situation daily.
