Divided into three sections,Radiation Oncology Primer and Reviewcovers basic science, clinical science, and technical and planning issues to give the trainee a full overview of the core knowledge base of the field.

Co-written by a former radiation oncology residency program director and a team of radiation oncology residents, the book is organized in concise sections and is amply illustrated to highlight key points and help the reader understand and retain major concepts.
