Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: James G Douglas, MD, MS (Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County)
Description: This is the premier textbook in radiation oncology and this edition continues that excellent tradition, updating the 2008 edition.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a comprehensive reference for practicing radiation oncologists and training radiation oncology residents and students. It continues to be the most important textbook in the field.
Audience: The book is designed for students, residents, and practicing radiation oncologists. Additionally, practicing and in training clinical physicists as well as dosimetrists will find this extremely useful. The contributors are a who's who of experts in the discipline.
Features: This edition is divided into five broad sections covering basic science concepts; techniques and modalities; clinical applications; palliative and supportive care; and economics, ethical, and technical aspects. Major sections are clearly delineated by color, which makes it easy to find needed information. The figures, radiographs, treatment planning illustrations, and graphs are of particularly high quality. The references are comprehensive and the book is very well edited.
Assessment: This remains the "go-to" book for the field of radiation oncology and should be in the libraries of, or at least accessible to, all radiation oncologists.
