About the Authors
  • Despite the world-wide drive to increase awareness of the risks of smoking, lung cancer remains a global problem. A multidisciplinary team approach is now considered the most effective way to manage lung cancer. Imaging plays a central role in this multidisciplinary approach; this is reflected in the present volume. Individual chapters focus on imaging (including screening, diagnosis of symptomatic cases and staging), pathology and treatment options in lung cancer. Due to recent interest in the potential role of PET for a variety of malignancies, a separate chapter is devoted to this technique. Each volume in Contemporary Issues in Cancer Imaging is co-ordinated by an expert guest editor with contributions from all members of the multidisciplinary team, bringing together expertise from many specialities to promote the understanding and application of modern imaging in patient management.

    • One-stop resource for advice on pathology, screening, every modality of diagnostic imaging and all forms of treatment - chemotherapy, surgery, radiotherapy: provides clear practical clinical management advice
    • Contributors from a wide range of disciplines give advice on their area of expertise
    • Highly illustrated with excellent imaging of every modality, plus pathology
