Designed to fit easily in your lab coat or scrubs, Pocket Guide to Radiation Oncology is an efficient, no-frills guide to the basics of clinical radiation oncology.

The chapters are packed with clinical pearls and tables covering treatment options, doses, side effects, target delineations, treatment planning, and other essentials.

Chapters are organized by site-specific disease. Each chapter presents the must-know key points, including treatment options by stage, relevant technical considerations, and important items for follow-ups. This crucial material makes the book an ideal companion for the practicing physician during rounds and other clinical settings. The book's organized format also lends itself to quick review for the board or MOC exams, and it can serve as a handy reference during a case review at a tumor board.

Key Features:

- The outline format and wealth of succinct tables make this a great quick reference
- Each chapter concludes with a list of selected, summarized studies relevant to the disease
- 51 disease-based chapters make it easy to find particular sites without having to sift through dense, broad text
- Supplemental sections at the end of the book provide quick access to normal tissue tolerance constraints as well as recommendations for managing symptoms after radiation therapy
