An Introduction to Radiology
The use of radiology in oncology is increasing worldwide, with a high demand for imaging services. Advances in imaging techniques have enabled real-time monitoring of treatment effects and adapting treatment plans accordingly. Advanced multi-modality diagnostic imaging using CT, high-resolution MRI and 18-F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET)/CT imaging is now part of the routine staging process for many tumour types.

Proton Beam Therapy
European Oncology & Haematology, 2018;14(2):82–3 DOI: https://doi.org/10.17925/EOH.2018.14.2.82
Proton beam therapy is a type of radiotherapy that employs a high energy beam of protons rather than high energy X-rays to deliver a dose of radiotherapy for patients with cancer.1 The UK has been involved in the development of proton beam therapy; a specialist eye service at Clatterbridge, Merseyside, UK, was the first hospital-based […]
ECIO 2016: A glimpse of the congress
Interventional radiologists from around the world, along with many of their oncologist colleagues, attended this year’s ECIO congress to learn more about advances in interventional oncology. Find out more about why they took part, and why they’ll be joining us again in Bilbao, Spain for ECIO 2017.
Foreword – Oncology & Hematology Review (US), 2016;12(1):
A warm welcome to this edition of the Oncology & Hematology Review (US). Cancer care costs are placing an escalating burden on global healthcare systems, partly owing to the high price points for biological therapies. However, with patents on many of these biological treatments expiring, biosimilars offer the potential to reduce healthcare expenditure while improving […]
Incorporating models of paediatric palliative care into India
Joan Marston, CEO of International Children’s Palliative Care Network in Assagay, South Africa talks to ecancer at IAPCON 2015 on her presentation regarding the paediatric palliative care programme they are running in hospitals in India. This programme is replicated from previous models that have been successfully integrated into African communities.
Fusion Imaging Guided Prostate Biopsy
SIU urologists Drs. Kevin McVary and Shaheen Alanee explain the use of fusion imaging, a revolutionary development in imaging combining Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) with real-time ultrasound images, to biopsy and manage prostate cancer.

Head and Neck Cancer Highlights of ESMO Congress 2014
European Oncology & Haematology, 2014;10(2):96–7 DOI: https://doi.org/10.17925/EOH.2014.10.2.96
Despite advances in multimodality treatment, the 5-year survival rate of patients with locally advanced head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) does not exceed 40–50% and survival rates for recurrent or metastatic disease (R/M) remain dismal.1,2 Low survival rates in combination with significant toxicities caused by current treatment strategies used in HNSCC emphasise the necessity […]
