Product description

Review

A very nice and practically useful book for those involved in radiotherapy planning, clinical decision-making, and delivery. ... Trainees in radiotherapy in particular will find this book invaluable. It is a text that will be used rather than simply gather dust on the shelf. (BMA Medical Book Competition 2007)

This clear, concise handbook provides an up-to-date mixture of evidence-based medicine and expert opinion for the relevant clinical application of external beam radiotherapy. With its easy-to-use format, it will be a valuable part of the radiotherapy library. (Doody's Notes)

A practical guide to daily clinical practice in the radiotherapy department. External Beam Therapy is an invaluable companion to trainees in medical physics, therapeutic radiography, and clinical or radiation oncology. (Anticancer Research 26)

I am a second year Bsc Radiotherapy Student and I cannot praise this book enough. It is easy to read and understand and the techniques are much more up to date than any of the other standard course texts e.g. Dobbs, Barrett & Ash. I think this will replace many existing text books as the essential course reader.

Format: Paperback
This book has two qualities not often present in Radiotherapy textbooks: Good value (it was cheaper when I bought it!) and being up to date. It has a number of contributors, an advantage in that a range of viewpoints are given. It will be useful to Oncologists, SPRs Radiographers and Physicists.

It gives a useful site by site description of radiotherapy approaches. I feel it could do with an expanded Physics section, but this it not a significant criticism.

Recommended.

Format: Paperback
An excellent hand-book for practical radiotherapy planning. The first manual in the UK to explain the process of 3D conformal radiotherapy planning. The facts are well supported by evidence referenced at the end of each chapter. I found this book to be a valuable resource during my preparations for the FRCR (clinical oncology) exams.

4.0 out of 5 stars Radiotherapy in Practice: Highly recommended 26 Dec. 2009
By Pam - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an exceptionally well written, concise and easy to understand book. The dose prescriptions described in this book are accurate, but should be considered in conjunction with other sources as there are some variations used in various oncology departments across different countries. This book is ideal for radiotherapy students or any lay person interested in learning more about cancer and the various radiotherapy treatment techniques available.

I have been a loyal customer of Amazon but I have experienced difficulty with obtaining this book through the "superbookdeals" supplier...approx 3 months of waiting for the delivery before realising that a refund was in order
