An ideal text for radiation oncologists, hematologist-oncologists, and radiologists, Image-Guided Radiotherapy and Functional Imaging in Modern Lymphoma Management is the foremost source for information on the increasingly important subject of image guided radiation therapy (IGRT) and its crucial role in the clinical evolution of high-precision ionizing beam therapy. An understanding of IGRT allows clinicians to improve targeting accuracy and safely increase dosage administration without increasing toxicity in normal, healthy tissue areas, resulting in better lymphoma patient outcomes.
