Radiation Oncology: A Question-Based Review is a comprehensive active learning tool for medical students, residents, and junior attending physicians in radiation oncology. The first question-and-answer review book in this field, it will help professionals quickly and efficiently review specific topics in clinical radiation oncology. It is also an ideal preparation tool for written and oral board examinations.

Organized in chapters and sections by site, the book covers in detail all the sites and cancer types currently treated with radiotherapy. Emphasis is on treatment recommendations and the evidence behind them. Detailed questions are also included on the natural history, epidemiology, diagnosis, staging, and treatment-related side effects for each cancer type.

A companion website will have an interactive question bank for self-testing.
