Clinical studies by the famed Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City and the equally prestigious University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston are among many hundreds cited by the authors in the production of this most authoritative medical treatise. Delfino and Day's book is without a doubt an important and insightful new work on radiation carcinogenesis that is sure to be welcomed by the worldwide medical community. Suitable as a textbook for teaching the next generation of caregivers, this book does a splendid job of providing recommended treatment options for most cancers and at various stages of development. Readable by clinicians, physicians, and their patients, we can expect this book to be a staple in every serious library for many years to come.
Upon learning of my tumor, my doctor recommended I take a look at this book, which I then preordered directly from the publisher. As my doctor alluded to having been one of the doctors who reviewed the work, the authors do a fine job of explaining with great sensitivity some of the treatment options that are available to me. Everything is explained. The writing is clear enough and chock full of facts that are always backed up by the clinical studies done by doctors and scientists through out the world. I especially like the authors way of referencing the clinical studies to the "best cancer hospitals" so that patients like myself can take advantage of our options. It is as the authors say all about quality of life and just because I have been diagnosed with cancer does not mean that I will not survive and live my life to the fullest.
