Recommended for Understanding RT; for Dosimetry etc
Understanding various aspects of RT in a concise manner from the experts themselves is very appealing. The editors have done a good work of collating the best from the minds in the advancing fields of RT, 3DCRT, IMRT, brachytherapy and STRT. All these topics are presented with contrasting Isodose profiles and respective techniques; give a good grasp of the subjects that form the basis of today's best work aimed for in established radiation oncology treatment centers.
The important aspect of the book is in keeping it simple to understand. This is great and emphasizes the use of the techniques in practical terms rather than in a less appealing theoretical concept.
I recommend it to every dosimetrist, like myself, RTs, oncologists, and even medical physicists. A must have for every upcoming student in Radiation Oncology. Thanks to Dr.Khan and Dr.Potish.

An average book on treatment planning in radiotherapy
In my view not the best book by this author. The previous book Physics of Radiation Therapy described in minute detail the fundamental physics, and with that was particularly aimed at the novice in Radiotherapy Physics. This book is much more general in nature and provides an overview of what is/should be state-of-the art in radiotherapy treatment planning. However, people active in the field should be familiar with that, and in that respect this book offers not much new. Despite my criticism it is a convenient overview in just one book.
