About this book


This book addresses key issues of controversy in radiation oncology for each disease site, with expert commentaries from leading authorities in the field. It identifies areas of confusion arising from discrepant data in the literature regarding certain clinical scenarios for different diseases and presents high-level evidence on each issue with a view to fostering best practice. Controversies in Radiation Oncology will serve as a very useful resource for busy radiation oncology physicians, practitioners, and trainees/residents/fellows seeking to utilize evidence in the literature to guide the management of radiation therapy patients.
