A dramatic increase in knowledge regarding the molecular biology of brain tumors has been established over the past few years, and this has lead to the development of novel therapeutic strategies for these patients. In this book a review of the options available for the clinical management of patients with these tumors are outlined. In addition advances in radiology both for pre-operative diagnostic purposes along with surgical planning are described.

Neuro-oncology has evolved substantially as a
clinical and research discipline over the past few
decades. Initially the province of isolated devotees,
it has become a well-recognized subspecialty
of neurology, oncology, and neurosurgery. The
Society for Neuro-Oncology, founded just five
years ago, now has almost 1000 members. Most
tertiary care hospitals have staff physicians who
consider themselves neuro-oncologists. These physicians
typically are involved in the evaluation and
management of neurologic complications of systemic
cancer and its treatment, as well as of primary
It is my privilege to introduce this Handbook on Advanced Cancer Care,
which belongs to a series of publications initiated by the European Society
for Medical Oncology (ESMO). There is a great need, especially for medical
oncologists, to have a comprehensive overview of the essential elements
needed for the care of patients with advanced cancer. This handbook fulfills
The Handbook on Advanced Cancer Care provides useful definitions and
surveys of treatment principles.
Major advances have been accomplished in recent years in conformal and
stereotactic techniques, dosimetry as well as in target volume concepts, and
clinical studies have been performed. This peer-reviewed volume of Frontiers
of Radiation Therapy and Oncology includes a selection of the important
topics discussed at the meeting on ‘3-D Radiation Treatment: Technological
Innovations and Clinical Results’ which was organized by the Department of
Radiation-Oncology of the Technical University of Munich and focused on
conformal and stereotactic radiotherapy in the treatment of tumors....
Staging of Small Cell Lung Cancer Pretreatment staging for patients with SCLC includes the initial general lung cancer evaluation with chest and abdominal CT scans (because of the high frequency of hepatic and adrenal involvement) as well as fiberoptic bronchoscopy with washings and biopsies to determine the tumor extent before therapy; brain CT scan (10% of patients have metastases); and radionuclide scans (bone) if symptoms or other findings suggest disease involvement in these areas.
Treatment of Metastatic Disease
Melanoma can metastasize to any internal organ, the brain being a particularly common site. Metastatic melanoma is generally incurable, with survival in patients with visceral metastases generally
