    Summary: This book is a comprehensive guide to the use of modern radiation therapy techniques for prostate cancer and other common and rare genitourinary malignancies. It will be an ideal resource for clinicians and trainees wishing to delve more deeply into the practical and technical aspects of radiotherapy for these malignancies and will serve to enhance day-to-day management in clinical practice. The first section is devoted to prostate cancer and includes coverage of low dose rate and high dose rate brachytherapy, conventionally fractionated, moderately hypofractionated, and ultra-hypofractionated external beam radiotherapy, and proton therapy. The second section focuses on radiotherapy considerations in relation to bladder cancer, testicular cancer, renal cell carcinoma, and rare malignancies such as penile cancer and urethral cancer. Radiotherapeutic treatment of patients with genitourinary malignancies now involves unprecedented precision and complexity, and this book will enable readers to exploit fully the exciting advances that have been achieved in recent years.
