The only comprehensive guide to the latest knowledge and techniques in brachytherapy Since the first edition was published in 2006, Phillip M. Devlins Brachytherapy has been acknowledged as the essential book on the practice. Inthis updated new edition, all chapters covering cancer sites have been significantly revised. Organized for specialists in several fields, Brachytherapy contains site-specific chapters that discuss how the evolving role of advanced image guidance has demonstrated greater efficacy and less toxicity. Clinical vignettes with images now accompany all site-specific chapters. The chapter on prostate brachytherapy has been expanded to include other indications in the genitourinary system, and there are two entirely new chapters one chronicling the history of brachytherapy and the other detailing the emergence of skin brachytherapy. Dr. Devlin, a leading world authority on brachytherapy, has assembled other leaders in the field from world-renowned radiation oncology programs to enrichthis comprehensive text.
