The book gives due consideration to the principles of pediatric radiation therapy and the etiology of childhood tumors, as well as newer, molecular approaches in pediatric oncology. Individual chapters provide a concise review of current diagnostic and therapeutic approaches for major childhood malignancies, including neuroblastoma, rhabdomyosarcoma, and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Each chapter is organized in such a way that busy practitioners and residents will easily find the important new information that they seek. The text is supplemented by excellent illustrations and tables of results, and detailed, up-to-date reference lists are a further benefit."@en ;
