About this book


This second edition of Radiotherapy of Intraocular and Orbital Tumors provides up-to-date information on the diagnosis and treatment of cancers of the eye and orbit. Important chapters from the first edition have been revised, for example providing the most recent data with respect to retinoblastoma, rhabdomyosarcoma, and melanoma. In addition, there are a number of chapters by new contributors, so that this edition has a more broadly based, international character. The presenting signs and symptoms of the various tumors are outlined, and the indications for ultrasonography, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging studies analyzed. Treatment techniques, together with their results in respect of survival and local tumor control, are described in detail; special attention is paid to multimodality therapy. Particle beam irradiation and plaque therapy are reviewed, and chemotherapy and heat treatment are also discussed. Potential complications of radiotherapy are described, and relevant information is provided on the conservative and surgical management of radiation effects. The emphasis of the book is on the need for a holistic approach to the patient that recognizes the wider role of irradiation of the eye now that more careful treatment planning is possible. This revised edition will be a valuable asset to all ophthalmologists, radiation oncologists, pediatricians, endocrinologists, oncologists, and residents in training, as well as to students in these disciplines.
