about

This volume is based on the LENT V NCI-sponsored meeting held in May 2004 and the CURED I Conference in 2006. Written by experts in the field, it addresses a critical topics relating to late effects, such as mechanisms of injury, the role of screening, options for interventions, second malignancies, and prevention. It is hoped that these findings will help readers to prevent and treat the long-term side-effects of irradiation.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This book provides a basic science understanding of the processes behind the side effects of radiation. . is appropriate for residents, clinicians, radiobiologists, and medical physicists as it addresses the fundamentals necessary for a firm understanding of radiation sequelae. . The color pictures, graphs, diagrams, and tables beautifully illustrate the main concepts of each chapter. . Chapters outline the guidelines and models for researchers and clinicians . . should be in the library of every radiation oncology department." (Ann Pittier, Doody's Review Service, August, 2008)
