“The book is well written and illustrated and each chapter is extensively referenced. The strength of the book is the breadth of its content which lends it to readers looking to have an overview of the subject and will therefore be suited to radiation oncology trainees, therapeutic radiographers and trainee physicists. … The addition of this book to the current stock in the libraries of radiation oncology facilities where training is undertaken should be considered.” (Dr. John Logue, RAD Magazine, December, 2015)
“The book covers foundations and techniques for IMRT. It has the added benefit of including emerging technologies such as adaptive radiation therapy (ART) and the use of molecular imaging techniques for preferential targeting of high tumor burden regions. … this would be a nice addition to the library of a medical physics or radiation oncology resident.” (Carri K. Glide-Hurst, Doody’s Book Reviews, October, 2015)


Provides accumulated clinical evidence and proper techniques for IMRT
Contains case studies of IMRT clinical application for each cancer site
Serves clinicians and medical physicists as a valuable resource for daily IMRT practice
