Radiation Therapy Techniques for Gynecological Cancers: A Comprehensive Practical Guide

Radiation Therapy Techniques for Gynecological Cancers: A Comprehensive Practical Guide

This book is a practical guide to the use of modern radiation therapy techniques in women with gynecological cancers. Step-by-step instruction is provided on simulation, contouring, and treatment planning and delivery for cancers of the cervix, endometrium, vagina, and vulva. Beyond external beam radiation delivery, full details are presented on three-dimensional brachytherapy at all sites for which it is applicable. Moreover, in-depth guidance is offered on the various advanced techniques of radiation delivery, including intensity-modulated radiation therapy, image guidance for external beam and brachytherapy, and stereotactic body radiotherapy.

Radiation therapy is a critical component of the multidisciplinary management of gynecological tumors. With modern technology, both external beam radiation and brachytherapy can be delivered in a highly conformal way. This requires precise contouring and accurate planning techniques. In clearly describing the indications for and the delivery of quality radiation therapy for gynecological tumors, this book will benefit radiation oncologists, medical physicists, medical dosimetrists, radiation therapists, and radiotherapy residents.

Precision Medicine in Gynecology and Obstetrics

Precision Medicine in Gynecology and Obstetrics

This volume presents the scientific advances and current status of our understanding of precision medicine for common diseases in gynecology and obstetrics. Standard treatments based on clinical guidelines in the field have been established for decades, and those are essential to daily clinical practice. Meanwhile comprehensive genomic and genetic analyses have led to personalized medicine by precise clinical and genomic approaches. This book is organized into two major parts, gynecology and obstetrics, and the chapters in each part give a clear exposition of the current knowledge and the future perspectives for the treatment of various gynecological cancers, maternal disorders, and other diseases that affect female patients. Topics on novel treatment strategy with the application of molecular targeted drugs, immunotherapy, and prevention medicine are also covered.

This collection benefits not only experienced gynecologists and obstetricians, but also young physicians who would like to begin clinical and basic research on diseases in women, researchers in basic medicine, and all medical oncologists who are involved in gynecological cancers.

Frontiers in Ovarian Cancer Science (Comprehensive Gynecology and Obstetrics)

Frontiers in Ovarian Cancer Science (Comprehensive Gynecology and Obstetrics)

This volume presents the latest advances and the current status of our understanding regarding ovarian cancer, addressing both the basic and clinical aspects of the disease. In terms of basic medicine, the WHO Classification of Tumors of Female Reproductive Organs was revised in 2014, and that version addresses several new concepts and histopathological classifications not previously included. One of the most revolutionary breakthroughs concerns the genesis of epithelial ovarian tumors, shifting the focus from the ovarian surface epithelium to serous tubal intraepithelial carcinomas. Clinically, the mortality rate of epithelial ovarian cancer has gradually increased over the past few decades, making it essential to pursue multidisciplinary treatment and apply novel techniques such as neoadjuvant chemotherapy in daily clinical practice. The primary clinical task is the effective treatment of recurrent ovarian cancer with early palliative medicine. Fertility-sparing surgery may also be pursued depending on histologic subtypes, stage, extent of disease, and preexisting ovarian reserve with the concept of oncofertility.
On the basis of the considerations described above, each expert author elucidates the science of ovarian cancer in detail, thus providing a collection that will benefit young medical oncologists and seasoned gynecologists and obstetricians alike.

Renowned experts provide detailed discussions of basic research and clinical aspects of uterine fibroids and adenomyosis in this book, from histopathology and molecular pathogenesis to diagnosis and the latest treatment of uterine fibroids, including pregnancy complications of adenomyosis. A great deal of information and a deep understanding of molecular and genetic biology have led to development of more innovative treatments of these tumors. Thus this book benefits not only oncologists, seasoned gynecologists, and obstetricians, but also molecular biologists and other basic researchers who are involved in the treatment of uterine fibroids.
