Cancer-Matrix Manual The Cancer-Matrix represents the most effective compilation of scientific treatment regimens for the uniform cancer treatments with existing chemotherapy agents and adjuvant therapy. The treatment of choice is based on TNM system and classification and staging of cancer. It is an efficient and precise reference guide with detailed administrative instructions of the drugs accompanied in some cases either with post- or adjuvant radiation therapy. This is a helpful tool with detailed delivery of clinical applications of the current chemotherapy agents alone or with adjuvant radiation therapy.
The Cancer-Matrix Treatment Manual is an invaluable compilation of the most effective (e.g., response, 3 & 5 years survival rates, clinical toxicity, with inclusion of SPIKES protocol for breaking bad news and guidelines for management of nausea, diarrhea, and pain) existing drugs for treatment of all cancer cell lines based on scientific findings/papers gathered from the peer reviewed journals, and articles presented in national and international conferences.
It is printed pocket sized enabling the medical professionals in the field of cancer to retrieve the treatment information quickly. The new 4th edition will feature substantial changes with updated treatment algorithm and radiation and chemo-radiation regimens in all disease sites.
The treatment of choice is based on TNM system and classification and staging of cancer.
The new 4 edition of Cancer-Matrix will feature following changes:
1. New title and new cover design: Cancer-Matrix Treatment Manual. 2. Updated radiation and chemo-radiation regimens in all disease sites. 3. Updated Cancer-Matrix treatment algorithms. 4. Targeted agents and clinical trials. 5. Hematology 6. Orphan disease such as thymoma, neuroendocrine tumor, hepatocellular cancer. 7. New dimension of 4th edition will be 25% smaller and the staging, treatment and algorithm on each disease site will be uniformly coded with same color along plus their respective ICD.This is an excellent reference source for daily clinical practice for the professionals in field of Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Hematology, Nursing and useful resource for Nurses in oncology fields, Residency programs, and Medical Students.
Principles & Practice of Clinical Physics & Dosimetry This superbly organized textbook “Principles and Practices of Clinical Physics & Dosimetry ” covers the basic treatment planning concepts which are defined and explained in detail. Following the definition and explanation, the concepts are applied in clinical situations. The detailed step-by-step dose calculation methods and the examples of manual dose distribution planning would especially benefit dosimetrist trainees, radiation therapy students and junior physicists. The comprehensive atlas of dose distribution of every site in the human body would serve as a good reference source for dosimetrists, physicists, radiation oncologists, residents, radiation therapists, and treatment planning system developers. In addition, the dosimetric problems would provide additional practice in problem solving. Furthermore, there are considerable interests in a textbook of dose distribution atlas of every site in the human body. This is such a textbook. This is an invaluable and essential reference for practical overview of standard clinical dosimetry and comprehensive step-by-step/detailed dosimetry set-ups and reviewing all the anatomy sites pertaining to clinical/physics dosimetry dose computation. This textbook should be incorporated in clinical dosimetry field as a teaching guide and complete resource for hands on dosimetry and effective study guide for dosimetrists, radiation oncologists, medical physicists, and radiation therapists. Also, it is an excellent study guide resource for board preparation exams.
A compilation of Radiobiology Practice Examinations This book includes almost one thousand radiobiology questions of A, B, and X format along with informative answers to assist in the preparation for board examinations. This volume is a compilation of questions from 1995 to 1999. The questions from those examinations have been revised, updated, and reorganized into specific topics to make the review process easier.
Radiological Physics (RAPHEX) Examinations for 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998. These practice exams are written each year by the instructors who teach residents radiological physics. They are the best way for residents to test their own knowledge and prepare for their board exams. The exams contain 100 questions each in: 1) general physics; 2) radiation oncology physics; and 3) diagnostic radiology physics.
