Abstract
Prostate brachytherapy has been the subject of heated debate among surgeons and the proponents of the various brachytherapy methods. This very first interdisciplinary book on the subject provides a comprehensive overview of innovations in low dose rate (LDR), high dose rate (HDR), and pulsed dose rate (PDR) interstitial brachytherapy for the management of local or locally advanced prostate cancer. In addition to detailed chapters on patient selection and the use of imaging in diagnostics, treatment guidance, and implantation control, background chapters are included on related medical physics issues such as treatment planning and quality assurance. The results obtained with the different treatment options and the difficult task of salvage treatment are fully discussed. All chapters have been written by internationally recognized experts in their fields who for more than a decade have formed the teaching staff responsible for the successful GEC-ESTRO/EAU Prostate Brachytherapy Teaching Course. This book will be invaluable in informing residents and others of the scientific background and potential of modern prostate brachytherapy. It will also prove a useful source of up-to-date information for those who specialize in prostate brachytherapy or intend to start an interstitial brachytherapy service.

Abstract
This book reviews locoregional radionuclide cancer therapies (LRCT). Proving an increasingly viable alternative to radiotherapy, radionuclide therapy includes a diversity of choices of well characterized biochemical and physiologic target molecules. The delivery and retention of radionuclides may be monitored by advanced imaging for exact tissue localization and for real-time dosimetry to enable personalized precision medicine. Radiopharmaceuticals in human cancer therapies are typically delivered in systemic routes but can also be designed for locoregional routes to harness pharmacokinetic advantages of higher payload and lower systemic toxicities. This book explores the latest advancements and clinical considerations of the locoregional approach. Throughout the chapters, the clinical and scientific bases of cancer treatment and the locoregional use of radionculides are explored. Mathematical models of radiation dosimetry of locoregional radionculdies on tissues are studied using common models for multiple commercially available radionuclides. Rodent and canine tumor models of LRCT are compared for selected radionuclides and radiopharmaceuticals. The practical aspects of radiopharmaceuticals production, marketing, transport, as well as radiation protection are reviewed. Finally, the combination of LRCT with immunotherapy and other cancer therapies and prospective future use of LRCT are discussed. This is a guide for practicing nuclear physicians, interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, radiation scientists, veterinarians and oncologists to expand their knowledge base and to prepare for designing locoregional radionuclide cancer therapies in animals and in humans.

Abstract
This book is an evidence-based guide to the prevention and current management of acute and late toxicities of radiation therapy for a wide range of malignancies. Each chapter focuses on a particular anatomic site and provides information on normal sectional anatomy, contouring of target volumes and organs at risk, dose constraints, the pathophysiology of radiation toxicity, and treatment approaches for each potential toxicity. The information provided will assist in the planning and delivery of intensity-modulated radiation therapy, including volumetric modulated arc therapy, stereotactic radiosurgery, and stereotactic body radiotherapy. It will also enable the selection of appropriate, evidence-based management options in individual patients who experience radiation toxicities, taking into account the organ-specific pathophysiology of radiation injury. Written by acknowledged experts and featuring numerous high-quality illustrations, the book will be an ideal reference aid for practicing clinical and radiation oncologists, radiotherapists, fellows, residents, and nurses.

Abstract
Principles and Practice of Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS), Second Edition aims to serve as the definitive reference textbook for SRS practitioners. It provides a theoretical basis for the use of therapeutic SRS including imaging techniques and radiobiology. The bulk of the textbook contains chapters that are comprehensive in scope on all diseases that are treated by SRS. Lastly, it addresses administrative and technical aspects of running an SRS unit. Each chapter provides an expansive treatment of the subject. Emphasis is placed on the technical aspects of SRS so that practitioners in this field will use it as a daily reference. Each subject is presented by historical context, then by its pathophysiology. Current treatment methods and results are addressed in depth. A liberal use of tables and figures enhance the presentation. A review of all major clinical studies and representative case presentations, where possible, are provided with imaging, treatment planning, and follow-up results. Each chapter is followed by one or two mini-chapters that provide a counter-viewpoint experience to the main chapter, which is oriented to SRS. These counter-viewpoint chapters are written by a noted expert in that field and address in greater detail the indications, results, and complications of their approach to the disease discussed in the main chapter. Principles and Practice of Stereotactic Radiosurgery, Second Edition is the only reference needed for neurosurgeons, radiation oncologists, and medical physicists at all levels of training and practice who are interested in SRS.

Abstract
This book is devoted to sharing the knowledge and experience of expert radiation therapy (RT) for extranodal lymphomas. For that purpose, the authors provide clinical-pathological information, precise RT techniques, and treatment results, i.e., disease control and survival, of all extranodal lymphomas. Over the past 10 years, specific techniques have been updated, from 3-dimensional conformal RT to intensity modulated RT / volumetric-modulated arc therapy. Precise targeting such as image-guided RT and active breathing control are now capable of treating lymphoma lesions that shift with respiration or peristalsis. This book, serving as a guide, provides the necessary knowledge for radiation oncology, practice, and planning involving the RT techniques of treating extranodal lymphomas. In addition, it equips oncologists, hematologists, and medical oncologists to refer patients with extranodal lymphomas to radiation oncologists for appropriate treatment in a timely manner. Therefore this volume will greatly benefit all oncologists, including radiation and medical oncologists, as well as hematologists.
