It has a unique design, very easy to use and to understand which is very helpful.
John Doe Blackburn
There is at last a good "starter" book for students and residents (and even outside specialties) interested in radiation oncology.
Siavash Jabbari
Most, if not all, of the important radiation-related clinical trials are included.

Eric Hansen and UCSF have done a great service to residents in radiation oncology with this book. Each chapter has what they call "pearls" (need-to-know general information) followed by work up, staging and then the studies section. The studies cover the important trials for each disease site with what ends up being perhaps too little editorializing. There are treatment "guidelines" listed by stage. At the end of the book, there is an appendix filled with helpful medications and abbreviations. It's up to date and fits well in the coat pocket. It is most useful if you have a baseline knowledge of the data but even on its own, it's very helpful. Given the lack of similar available books, this is a well done much needed addition.

Format: Paperback
An extremely comprehensive handbook for radiation oncology providing an excellent overview of the individual cancer specific sites as well as references and summaries of appropriate, important and key articles. Dr. Roach and Dr. Hansen in addition to all of the contributing physicians have done an outstanding job providing a thorough yet readable handbook for radiation oncologists.

A Niiice!! There is at last a good "starter" book for students and residents (and even outside specialties) interested in radiation oncology. Other fields have had similar introductory/review books for years, but this has always been lacking in rad onc. As a first-year radiation oncology resident, this book has been invaluable, being extremely "high-yield," yet a quick read for any given topic (much more so than the baby-Perez, and certainly more up to date). Its the first thing I read for a new disease site, before a coming pimp session, or patient presentation. The key papers summarized for each topic are a great place to start when looking for more in-depth reading. The various appendixes, which cover commonly prescribed drugs to tumor markers, are also essential to have for easy access while in clinic. A "must have," certainly before investing time and cash in a major text.

This is the book that we have all been waiting for. Dr. Roach and Dr. Hansen have created the ideal resource for residents and medical students. Each chapter has "pearls" of epidemiology, anatomy, pathology, and clinical presentation. The work-up is then outlined as well as staging guidelines. Finally, treatment guidelines(with relevant references from the literature!)along with treatment complications and follow-up. This book is perfect for 4th year rotations and is very compact (small enough to easily fit in a white coat pocket). An outstanding resource!

Most of us as residents always had difficulty gleaning the truly important bits of information and clinical trials from the standard rad-onc textbooks. This is the handbook we've all been waiting for, and this is the book that several generations of residents have talked about writing--but it's finally here. The chapters are well organized and includes the latest AJCC staging. I especially like the treatment recommendations by stage, as well as having ACTUAL pictures of the treatment fields. I only wish I had this book as a first year resident.

Definitely recommend. Our residency program created a similar series of notes for each disease site, but having this all fit in your pocket alone is worth the cost, carrying scraps of paper is a pain. Secondly, they have updated trials and added new stuff which really is needed every year or so. Lastly, the practical tips for simulation have been useful for me out in community practice. Thank you for putting this together. DL

very useful. even better than the first edition. every radiation oncology resident should have one because it is a very good summary of every cancer by site (i'm not a resident and i use it nearly every day). it's small than other textbooks and easier to understand in the daily routine.

This book is a very good tool for residents and radiation oncologists in general.
It quotes the most important publications per tumor sites and also describes without digressions the therapeutic approach.
Why 4 stars? Doesn't focus enough on IMRT targets delineation, extremely important in modern radiotherapy.
