NEW: 2nd Edition - fully revised!
This second edition of the “Gastrointestinal Tract Tumours: Essentials for Clinicians”, designed as a “must-have” educational tool to serve and guide oncologists in training and medical students, will also be of general appeal to other physicians and practitioners wishing to receive continuing education in the field of gastrointestinal oncology. Organised in two main sections: “What every oncologist should know” and “More advanced knowledge”, the book uses concise text paired with informative illustrations.
In this visual and very didactic format, the first section is tackling the “everything you need to know” from the expanding understanding of the molecular basis of gastrointestinal (GI) cancers, diagnosis, staging, tracking of response and interventional radiology of GI tumours, to the latest updates from leading physicians–scientists in oesophageal, gastric, colon, rectal, pancreatic and hereditary colorectal cancer.
In addition to the essentials, the book also introduces more advanced knowledge for those who wish to explore the topic further: from the biology of cancer development to an “under the lens” look at rarer GI tumours.
This second edition also introduces a new chapter on the Treatment of oligometastatic disease.
