    Hi, I'm about to start my radonc residency. Just wondering which books would be useful to keep in my white coat pocket. I also have a PDA, any advice on good programs/resources to download? Thanks

    Hands down, the best one to get is "Handbook of Evidence-based Radiation Oncology" by Eric Hansen.

    I really like the TNM staging applet for my Palm. I'm not sure if they have one for Pocket PC, though. You can download it from the USC rad onc dept website. Since it is kind of obscure and difficult to find, you can follow this link.

    speaking of books, my library is getting rid of a couple. What would be better to buy, a 2004 Perez text or a 2004 Liebel text? I hope I am not invading this post but I didn't think this was worth a new post altogether. Thanks

    There is a new Perez coming out. I would get that and the new Gunderson and Tepper.

    frankly you dont need every single text; its harder and harder now in the IMRT era. get one basic text that oyu like. In some books some chapters are weak; in those cases simply borrow from the library other texts.

    I never found perez all that useful; the very occasional reference and that was it.
