Radiation therapy plays a key role in the management of many tumors and pseudotumors of the eye and orbit, yet few educational resources are devoted specifically to this subject. The first edition of Radiotherapy of Intraocular and Orbital Tumors immediately became the leading textbook in this field, and the second edition carries on this tradition. In the second edition, editors R. H. Sagerman, MD, and W. E. Alberti, MD, have included new information on magnetic resonance imaging of ocular tumors, ocular and orbital lymphoma, thermotherapy, chemotherapy, combined modality therapy, optic nerve glioma, and Graves disease. The book includes 28 chapters contributed by 43 authors, 21 of whom are new to this edition.
