About this Textbook

Now in its second edition, this popular text remains a comprehensive study and review aid for the radiation oncology trainee and practicing radiation oncologist. The updated Radiation Oncology Study Guide, 2e maintains its robust Q&A format, and has been comprehensively updated to include the latest staging information and treatment methods. Answer rationales have been modified to a more readable, high yield bulleted format.

Each chapter covers a major disease site and is divided into two main parts: Questions & Answers and Rationale. Questions review the scope of clinical practice, spanning from initial presentation to complications of treatment. General content and work-up questions emphasize “pearls” of epidemiology, anatomy, pathology, clinical presentation, and staging. Treatment content questions not only review evidence-based data guiding treatment recommendations, but also practical aspects of radiation treatment planning, pertinent radiobiology and physics, and complications of treatment. 

This book is an ideal resource for physicians-in-training to prepare for initial written and oral exams and physicians in practice to maintain their skills and prepare for maintenance of certification longitudinal and written exams.
