Description

Image-Guided Radiation Therapy presents key image-guided radiation treatment (IGRT) technologies for external beam radiotherapy. The book explores the decades-long technological developments that have occurred in the realm of image-guided conformal, customized radiation treatment.

Expert authors, all of whom have actively participated in the development or implementation of IGRT, imaging, and enabling technologies, share their first-hand experiences on the science, clinical uses, and impact of these technologies. They describe kilovoltage and megavoltage imaging as well as radiological, ultrasound, and optical technologies for determining and validating target and patient positioning. The book examines how anatomical and biological imaging using CT and PET has contributed to the understanding of target volume boundaries and biological behavior. It also explores such innovations as 4D PET/CT and digital tomosynthesis.

User’s Reviews

J. Daniel Bourland, PhD, received his PhD in medical and health physics from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He was on the radiation oncology faculty at UNC-Chapel Hill and Mayo Clinic, and is now Professor, Department of Radiation Oncology, Wake Forest University. He teaches medical physics graduate students in the WFU Departments of Biomedical Engineering and Physics.

Image-Guided Radiation Therapy contains valuable information on the history of image-guided radiation treatment (IGRT), imaging systems, and secondary technologies. It is extensive in the explanation of how such systems are used clinically, and it covers most of the devices offered by manufacturers today. It is truly a remarkable compilation of focused and detailed chapters that span the art of image-guided radiation therapy.
