Book Description

September 1, 2010 1933864524 978-1933864525 1
The Handbook of Treatment Planning in Radiation Oncology is a focused pocket-sized handbook designed for Radiation Oncology trainees and Residents, to serve as an up-to-date, quick resource to lead them through all of the standard steps to plan and deliver radiotherapy for all major malignancies. The goal of the Handbook is to provide evidence-based information but also to be reflective of the knowledge gained through experience in practice. All chapters represent a joint collaboration between residents and staff radiation oncologists in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the Cleveland Clinic. Throughout the Handbook, the focus is on a series of steps to follow in order to successfully complete effective radiotherapy planning. Sections are organized by body site or system, whichever proved best for consistency in presenting the general principles of planning. Also included are specialized topics such as palliative therapy and pediatrics. After a discussion of general planning requirements, each specific subsite within a given section then provides more specific details on approaches to radiotherapy planning. The Handbook will be attractive to trainees at every level (including medical students, residents, fellows and researchers) and also be of use to practitioners in the community.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very useful supplement to the Roach handbook October 2, 2011
Format:Paperback
This handbook fills a niche not addressed by the other handbooks available. The Roach handbook, for example, is quite useful as a quick reference for staging, general treatment approach, and seminal studies; however, it leaves much to be desired from the standpoint of the practical aspects of radiation treatment planning. In contrast, the Handbook of Treatment Planning in Radiation Oncology lives up to its title inasmuch as it fills this void very well. As such, I find that the combination of these two handbooks is extremely effective when addressing the vast majority of questions that arise on a daily basis. I highly recommend this combination to radiation oncology residents and young attendings who are interested in a highly portable (1 cm thick) source of treatment planning pearls.

5.0 out of 5 stars just what i need as a resource August 20, 2011
Format:Paperback
this is ons of the best little manuals i have ever used, it is compact, user friendly and very complete at the same time, and a very good resource for understanding the material we need to do radiotherapy, i completely disagree with the previous reviewers in every sense who seems to me to have been looking at another text! this handbook is loaded with helpful images which are representative of how i want to think about doing planning, also the facts are bulleted in a very logical and readable way, i highly recommend this book to anyone who is doing their radiation training
