Review:

From the reviews: “One of the monographs in the Cancer Treatment and Research series ... reproduces papers given at a symposium on osteosarcoma held at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in March 2008. ... appeal to those few oncologists, orthopedists, or radiation therapists who are actively involved in the treatment of patients with osteosarcoma. ... The information is well presented and conforms to generally known and accepted current therapy. ... can be used as a quick source of good and thorough basic information.” (Robert M. Arensman, Doody’s Review Service, January, 2010)
