Formatted Abstract/Summary
Radiation therapy (RT) is associated with acute and late effects of normal tissues. Acute effects are often expressed during or immediately after RT and are transient, while late effects may be expressed months to years after completion of treatment and are often irreversible and may be progressive. In addition, radiation effects may clinically appear as other conditions, not related to the cancer or its treatment. This chapter describes the RT effects associated with commonly treated malignancies, the differential diagnosis and methods to treat or limit the adverse sequelae of radiation treatment'.
