This new volume in the Radiotherapy in Practice series provides a comprehensive and evidence-based guide to radiotherapy in the management of children and young people with cancer. It explains the roles of the various modalities of treatment available, including image-guided and intensity modulated radiotherapy, brachytherapy, proton beam therapy, and molecular radiotherapy, and aids selection of the most appropriate technique in different situations. Each cancer type in children is explored, including diagnostic investigations, risk stratification, multi-modality approaches to treatment, and decision making with regard to radiotherapy. Specific guidance is given for the planning and prescription of radiotherapy for infants, children, and teenagers. The authors also identify the need for specialist paediatric radiotherapy service provision, and the wider requirements for radiotherapy in children, including consent, immobilisation, anaesthesia, multi-professional team working, and play specialist support. With over 75 colour illustrations, case histories to demonstrate the various approaches, and a carefully selected guide to further reading on each topic, this practical volume will be a valuable resource for physicians and trainees in radiotherapy and clinical oncology, and to nurses, radiographers and other allied health professionals who come into contact with young patients receiving radiotherapy. ABOUT THE SERIES Radiotherapy remains the major non-surgical treatment modality for the management of malignant disease. It is based on the application of the principles of applied physics, radiobiology, and tumour biology to clinical practice. Each volume in the series takes the reader through the basic principles of the use of ionizing radiation and then develops this by individual sites. This series of practical handbooks is aimed at physicians both training and practising in radiotherapy, as well as medical physics, dosimetrists, radiographers, and senior nurses.

In 1790, it was not a given that the young US, bruised and healing from its struggle for independence and populated by fewer than four million inhabitants, would even survive, much less flourish. But the great adventure that came next - the exploration and settlement of the lands lying to the west and stretching to the Pacific Ocean - would build a nation where only a patchwork of Eastern seaboard colonies had existed before.  The first audiobook in this series, Out Where the West Begins: Profiles, Visions, & Strategies of Early Western Business Leaders, profiled 50 individuals who made significant contributions to the economic development of a young nation. This second volume follows the saga of more than 100 influential men and women - political and military leaders, religious thinkers, civil rights proponents, suffragettes, African American pioneers, writers and artists, explorers and surveyors, architects, inventors, innovators, medical professionals, and conservationists - who together wove the story of early Western frontier America. The engaging account of their lives forms a unique tapestry of human experience. In the words of the author, “Understanding our distinctive past helps us better comprehend who we are now and who we wish to become.” 1.

Seven Skins: Jackie Shaw, Book 2 , Hörbuch, Dig...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Seven Skins - two words scrawled above a hit list.  Six names - targets for assassination by bomb, bullet or blade.  Three killers - two vicious professionals and an idealistic young terrorist.  Two Security Service officers - confused and at each other’s throats.  One lost girl - abused and on the run.  And Jackie Shaw - outnumbered, disavowed and ready to tear an entire city apart.  When a series of apparently random assassinations hit London, MI5 and GCHQ deduce that the killers are working through a hit list of retired security forces operatives and that their next target is an ex-police officer from Belfast now living rough in the capital. Desperate to find the officer before he too is eliminated, the Security Services coerce Jackie Shaw, a man steeped in the violent history of Northern Ireland, into working for them.  While the three killers stalk their next victim, Jackie trawls the city’s underbelly in search of their target as he tries to protect a girl desperate to escape a gang of brutal traffickers. Leaving a trail of bullet casings and bodies, Jackie and the girl find themselves alone and on the run, fighting not just to uncover what or who the Seven Skins are but to save their own lives. 1.

Action, adventure, predators and peril - the first novel written and read by Bafta Award-winning Deadly Tv presenter and wildlife expert Steve Backshall about saving tigers. Saker is a member of the Clan. They're like brothers, but once you're a member you can never leave - ever. Each member has their own animal identity and tattoo, and each is an expert in jungle law, survival and the ways of animals in order to make them better spies, thieves or assassins. Saker's latest assignment takes him to India to bring down the men who protect tigers. He's being employed by a Chinese overlord who specialises in poaching for tiger farms and tiger organs for high-priced medicines. But something happens to make Saker change sides and now he's on the run from his predatory brothers. They're hunting him down and they're professionals. He meets 15-year-old Sinter, a spoiled rich girl, who is running away from an arranged marriage, and their uneasy friendship will eventually form an unshakeable bond, as together they face adventure and danger as two young eco-warriors in a truly threatening world. Tiger Wars is the first in Deadly presenter Steve Backshall's high-octane adventure series, The Falcon Chronicles, which introduces Saker and Sinter on a quest to right some of the horrific wrongs perpetrated against wildlife around the planet. As they rescue tigers or mountain gorillas, thwart shark finners and cyanide fishers, rainforest exploiters and canned hunters, they come face to face with the world's most fascinating, majestic and lethal creatures. 1.
