About The Author

Mukherji, Ashutosh

This book summarizes the do’s and don’ts of managing a patient receiving radiotherapy or chemotherapy as well as how to manage common day to day situations that one comes across in radiation oncology practice. It aims to serve as a useful guide for students of radiation oncology for their practical exams and provides useful answers mostly to the why’s of the various steps of radiotherapy planning, prescribing, evaluation and treatment delivery. The intent of this book is to cover the various indications and techniques for taking a decision on the various practical aspects of radiotherapy planning and delivery and hopes to offer assistance to young radiation oncologists in handling cancer patients. This is a more practice oriented book and does not aim to cover the various sites, types and indications of radiotherapy as a whole.
Section I: Approaching a cancer patient.- Section II: Principles of application of radiotherapy.- Section III: Use of other agents with radiation.- Section IV: Managing radiotherapy

“This book is a combination of equipment design, basic physics, patient advice, dosimetry evaluation and use of concurrent treatments to enhance radio-therapy, and will be a useful introductory book for students and trainees across the radiotherapy field to understand the patient pathway and experience of radiotherapy, although care must be taken with the currency of information, in particular in managing toxicities.” (Naomi Dickie, RAD Magazine, December, 2018)
