Description:

This new book "A Practical Guide to 3-D Planning and Conformal Radiation Therapy" in radiation onclogy cover the information you need to implement 3-D treatment planning and conformal radiation therapy techniques in your radation oncology center. It includes step-by-step descripations of methods necessary for implementing full 3-D for precise tumor localization targeting, and treament planning. A Practical Guide to 3-D Planning and Conformal Radiation Therapy describes both the technical implementation and the clinical treatment aspects of 3-D planning. It consists of topics covering:
  • 3-D treatment planning
  • Volume and dose specifications for 3-D conformal therapy
  • Practical CT-Simulation and 3-D planning process
  • 3-D radiation therapy plan evaluation
  • 3-D dose-calculation algorithms
  • Quality assurance procedures and performance testing for CT-Simulators
  • Acceptance testing & commissioning
  • Patient immobilization and virtual simulation
  • Implementation and clinical use of MLC and dynamic wedge
  • Commissioning and periodic QA of the Peacock system
  • Intensity modulated radiation therapy with Peacock system
  • Planning and delivery of intensity modulated treatment with MLC
  • Connectivity and commissioning issues in 3-D planning
  • Clinical implementation of electronic portal imaging
  • Methodology for evaluating 3-D treatment planning systems
  • Components of a 3-D conformal QA program
  • Technical requirements for participating in 3-D CRT multi-instituational clincal trials
  • Necessary resources to support 3-D radiation therapy planning
  • Future direction in 3-D treatment planning and delivery
