Sinopse treatment planning in radiation oncology
This is a unique book in its focus on treatment planning considerations, and it does so from multiple angles. The topics range from detailed descriptions of optimization algorithms to a paragraph on how to copy skin marks with clear plastic tape and a pen. All of the chapters contain plentiful color images. One drawback is the variable level of detail spent on target volume delineation. Some chapters have contouring atlas type images and a detailed discussion of the rationale behind including or excluding elective volumes. Other chapters have only a brief description of clinical target volumes. That said, the writing and figures overall are of high quality, and this book seems like a useful reference for individuals from widely differing backgrounds and levels of expertise.
