Industry Reviews

Doody's Review - Score 97 and 5 Stars!

"This book is clearly written and easy to read -- a hallmark of all books penned by Dr. Khan. It is a ready resource for finding answers to treatment planning related questions in radiation oncology. Perhaps, owing to size limitations, some topics are not covered in detail. However, ample references are provided for interested readers. It is my hope that the book's future editions will include an expanded list of study questions. It is also expected that the next edition will cover topics related to the evolving, yet important, field of MR-based treatment planning and delivery. The book is a joy to read and should appeal to all those interested in radiation oncology. " -Anil Sethi, PhD, FAAPM, DABMP, DABR(Loyola University Medical Center)
