Cancer remains a significant cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide: based on GLOBOCAN estimates, about 14.1 million new cancer cases and 8.2 million deaths occurred in 2012, and according to American Cancer Society estimates approximately 1.69 million new cases of cancer will be diagnosed in the United States in 2017, with approximately 601 000 deaths. It has been nearly 30 years since the first edition of Clinical Radiation Oncology: Indications, Techniques and Results was published in 1988, and 17 years since publication of the Second Edition in 2000. Featuring contributions from renowned specialists and prepared by the legendary Dr Chiu-Chen Wang – “… an editor well known for his skilled and no-nonsense methods of dealing with the various types of major organ cancers” – these earlier editions presented clinically relevant information in a user-friendly format. With this Tird Edition, the baton has been passed and
I have the onus of the continuation of Dr Wang’s legacy. In assuming this responsibility, my colleagues and I have sought to create a text reflective of the changes in the field of clinical radiation oncology, and in so doing, to continue to build on the immeasurable contribution to the medical literature of the textbook’s founding editor. Te textbook is a strong collaboration of myself, associate editors, section editors, and many outstanding chapter authors.
We have aimed to make the new edition even more useful to our intended readers: students, specialty and subspecialty trainees, practicing clinicians, and academicians. We took as a basic premise that the textbook would continue to be comprehensive, incorporating all of the significant advances made since the last edition, and written by a cast of authors at the forefront of the oncologic field. Terefore, this fully updated and enhanced Third Edition continues to offer a highly practical, applicationbased review of the biological basis of radiation oncology and the clinical efficacy of radiation therapy.
Te chapters discuss disease by anatomic site and cover relevant background information on each tumor, including epidemiology, pathology, diagnostic workup, prognostic factors, treatment techniques, applications of surgery and chemotherapy, end results of treatment, and pertinent clinical trials. Te comprehensive and rigorous assessment of each tumor site set forth in this text provides the foundation for the proper application of radiation therapy techniques in the treatment of patients with cancer.
Furthermore, the new edition addresses the latest developments in the field, including intensity-modulated
radiation therapy, image-guided radiation therapy, proton beam radiation therapy, and palliative radiotherapy.
We have also added chapters on statistics in radiation oncology and quality, which we are confident will provide further insight to our readers. Tis text is intended as an invaluable reference for radiation oncologists, oncologic surgeons, medical oncologists, oncology nurses, radiation therapists, residents, and students. I am grateful for the work done by my predecessor as steward of this textbook, and am especially appreciative of the enormous efforts made by the associate editors, Nancy Tarbell and Min Yao. Te additional section editors, Minesh Mehta, Jason A. Efstathiou and Chis Willet put together outstanding sections that provide unprecedented comprehensive evaluations of intrathoracic, genitourinary, and gastrointestinal sites. I am deeply indebted to the enormous effort of the chapter authors who provided content that fulfilled the high standards expected.
In addition, I want to thank several individuals who worked most closely with this project at Wiley including Claire Brewer, Jon Peacock, James Schultz, Audrey Koh and Claire Bonnett. I want to thank Shalini Sharma, who was critical in the final proofs for the book, and Amy Laleman, my Executive Secretary, whose extraordinary efforts helped get this book completed and state of the art for 2017. A special thanks goes out to Tomas Moore, the original senior editor of this edition, without whose vision and persistence this invaluable resource would not have been possible
