CT Anatomy for Radiotherapy 1st Edition

Since it was originally published in 2010, CT Anatomy for Radiotherapy has been an invaluable aid to a wide variety of radiotherapy professionals, both qualified and in training. This second edition has many welcome additions and updates, while retaining its original user-friendly format.

All essential structures relevant to radiotherapy are described and depicted on 3D images generated from radiotherapy planning systems. System-based labelled CT images, taken in relevant imaging planes and patient positions, build up understanding of relational anatomy and CT interpretation; and all images are accompanied by comprehensive commentary. This simplified approach enables the reader to gain image interpretation skills quickly and easily.

The second edition of CT Anatomy for Radiotherapy supports radiotherapy staff as they play a more active part in structure outlining and increasingly routine cone-beam CT verification. The text has been updated throughout, to reflect recent changes in technology and practice, and the reader is further supported with additional self-test questions and more interesting pathology examples. There is new information on safety in CT, use of contrast and minimising the impact of artefacts; and the dedicated lymph node sections have been refreshed, with detailed delineation of common nodal regions. New dedicated ‘Structure Focus’ sections concentrate on anatomical structures that are challenging yet clinically relevant for trial protocols or included in updated guidelines, including the penile bulb, coronary arteries, brachial plexus and complex supra-sellar regions.

The unique combination of the authors’ knowledge of both current and emerging radiotherapy requirements and CT image interpretation has again produced an accessible and highly relevant text that provides sufficient detail to satisfy the most inquisitive of students and support radiotherapy practice for a wide range of professionals.
