Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This is a concise guide to radiological definitions of lymph node groups for radiation treatment planning. . The primary audience is radiation oncologists at all stages of their careers. Residents and students should find this a very helpful anatomical guide. The authors are well known in radiation oncology and/or radiology. . This is a useful guide for the lymph node anatomy of the major disease site regions." (James G. Douglas, Doody's Review Service, July, 2009)
