Edited by Dr. Stephen Yang, each volume in the Early Diagnosis and Treatment of Cancer Series is packed with practical, authoritative information designed to cover the full range of diagnostic procedures, including pathologic, radiologic, bronchoscopic, and surgical aspects. You'll be able to determine the safest, shortest, least invasive way to reach an accurate diagnosis; stage the disease; and choose the best initial treatment for early stages. Based on current evidence in the literature, authors provide clinical, hands-on tools to help you make informed decisions on precisely what tests and imaging studies are needed to diagnose and stage each type of cancer. And, each volume is available online at expertconsult.com with videos of diagnostic procedures to help you better manage your patients, as well as access to all of the images, tables, and drawings from the text.
"This 5-volume set (the volumes are also sold individually) presents clear, practical guidelines for breast, ovarian, prostate, colorectal, and head and neck cancers, with a volume devoted to each type. Each volume includes online access to a website containing the text in searchable form, PubMed abstracts for the bibliography, and other features. The volumes are well-illustrated with excellent color plates of drawings and clinical and micro-photographs. Each chapter features an introductory list of key points, a clearly organized text in outline form, and a concluding list of references. The chapters describe the technologies used in diagnosis, types of surgery, pathology, therapies, imaging, genetics, treatment options for recurrence, reconstruction surgeries, and follow-up treatment and surveillance. This five-volume set is a thoughtfully conceived, well-produced, and up-to-date work, written and edited mainly by American specialists, that will be invaluable to the student and practitioner."
