ESMO Handbook of Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment Evaluation, 2nd Edition

2015 ESMO Handbook of Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment Evaluation

Cancer diagnosis and treatment evaluation is central to the role of all physicians working in oncology. ESMO first published its Handbook of Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment Evaluation in 2009; the book proved to be one of our most popular handbooks. Since publication of the first edition, the introduction of new techniques and information from research and clinical practice has led to substantial updates for chapters such as:

  • Role of Circulating Biomarkers in Oncology
  • Nuclear Medicine Imaging and Therapy
  • Late Toxicity

This fully updated, second edition, published in 2015, should be a must-read for all ESMO members.
