Reviews

“This is an excellent book regarding the stereotactic radiation modality include focused beam, stereotactic treatment of head and neck cancers, brain tumors, Cranial and Spinal AVMs, as well as GI/Pancreas tumors, liver, prostate, and bony metastases. … I recommend this book for all Rad/Onc physicians and radiation therapists with interests in current planning protocols. … Rad Onc residents, fellows and students may be able to learn from this good book.  I have no reservations in recommending this text.” (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, April, 2016)

“In this text book, Gaya and Mahedevan aim to provide a practical aid to SABR. … The book will be a useful refresher on the evidence, key issues and background information around the use of SABR and will be very helpful to trainees approaching part 2 of the FRCR.” (Professor Joe O’Sullivan, RAD Magazine, October, 2015)
