Reviews

  •   "The previous editions of this comprehensive textbook of radiation oncology have been considered among the definitive resources for practicing and in-training radiation oncologists…This updated third edition should be a part of all radiation oncologists' reference libraries. It incorporates the pertinent scientific principles, technical aspects of treatment planning, and details of the diseases germane to the field of radiation oncology."
