Defining organs at risk is a crucial task for radiation oncologists when aiming to optimize the benefit of radiation therapy, with delivery of the maximum dose to the tumor volume while sparing healthy tissues. This book will prove an invaluable guide to the delineation of organs at risk of toxicity in patients undergoing radiotherapy. The first and second sections address the anatomy of organs at risk, discuss the pathophysiology of radiation-induced damage, and present dose constraints and me…

Abstract
Defining organs at risk is a crucial task for radiation oncologists when aiming to optimize the benefit of radiation therapy, with delivery of the maximum dose to the tumor volume while sparing healthy tissues. This book will prove an invaluable guide to the delineation of organs at risk of toxicity in patients undergoing radiotherapy. The first and second sections address the anatomy of organs at risk, discuss the pathophysiology of radiation-induced damage, and present dose constraints and methods for target volume delineation. The third section is devoted to the radiological anatomy of organs at risk as seen on typical radiotherapy planning CT scans, with a view to assisting the radiation oncologist to recognize and delineate these organs for each anatomical region head and neck, mediastinum, abdomen, and pelvis. The book is intended both for young radiation oncologists still in training and for their senior colleagues wishing to reduce intra-institutional variations in practice and thereby to standardize the definition of clinical target volumes.

Abstract
This book, edited by leading experts in radiology, nuclear medicine, and radiation oncology, offers a wide-ranging, state of the art overview of the specifics and the benefits of a multidisciplinary approach to the use of imaging in image-guided radiation treatments for different tumor types. The entire spectrum of the most important cancers treated by radiation are covered, including CNS, head and neck, lung, breast, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, and gynecological tumors. The opening sections of the book address background issues and a range of important technical aspects. Detailed information is then provided on the use of different imaging techniques for T staging and target volume delineation, response assessment, and follow-up in various parts of the body. The focus of the book ensures that it will be of interest for a multidisciplinary forum of readers comprising radiation oncologists, nuclear medicine physicians, radiologists and other medical professionals.

Abstract
In this book, a distinguished group of clinicians provide straightforward, focused answers to the questions most commonly confronted by a multidisciplinary team when caring for patients with rectal cancer. The format of the book is designed to aid optimal decision making in a multidisciplinary setting with respect to key issues in imaging, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, and surgery, all of which are considered in detail. Helpful guidance is also offered on risk factor identification, pathology procedures and their prognostic value, and multidisciplinary team management. The authors have been carefully selected for their expertise, and most have been involved in the management of the more significant trials published in Europe during the past decade. In an era in which all patients are entitled to access healthcare systems that deliver the highest quality of treatment within a safe environment, together with appropriate advice, support, and long-term follow-up, the multidisciplinary team is of central importance. This successful book, in its revised and updated second edition, is designed to provide all the guidance likely to be required by members of the multidisciplinary team at various stages of the pathway of care for patients with rectal cancer.
