Decision Making in Radiation Oncology is a reference book designed to enable radiation oncologists, including those in training, to make diagnostic and treatment decisions effectively and efficiently. The design is based on the belief that “a picture is worth a thousand words.” Knowledge is conveyed through an illustrative approach using algorithms, schemas, graphics, and tables. Detailed guidelines are provided for multidisciplinary cancer management and radiation therapy techniques. In addition to the attention-riveting algorithms for diagnosis and treatment, strategies for the management of disease at individual stages are detailed for all the commonly diagnosed malignancies. Clinical trials that have yielded “gold standard” treatment and their results are documented in the schemas. Moreover, radiation techniques, including treatment planning and delivery, are presented in an illustrative way. This groundbreaking publication is an essential tool for physicians in their daily clinical practice.

The move towards individually-optimised treatments, using knowledge of normal tissue and tumour radiosensitivity, proliferation rates, etc, in combination with three-dimensional planning, will need mathematical modelling to achieve its full potential. This modelling process will also be capable of helping develop a rational and cost-effective use of resources.Amongst radiation oncologists and medical physicists there is a need for a greater understanding of the scope, applications and limitations of radiobiological modelling, particularly in complex situations that include multiple treatment variables, the respective influence of which are difficult to separate out by randomised trials without using radiobiologically-based analysis.In future there will be increasing use of modelling in practical situations, including treatment gap corrections, normal tissue tolerance predictions, optimisation of therapy determined by predictive assays, multi-modality schedule design, the simulation of clinical trials, testing contemporaneous medico-legal problems and teaching general principals of radiotherapy.
