Description

Each volume in the Early Detection 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. Practical, authoritative, and highly-illustrated, this volume in the brand new Early Detection and Treatment of Cancer series covers current protocols and the latest advances in diagnostic imaging and molecular and serologic markers for colon cancer. Apply expert advice on the best “next-step plan for different presentations and tips for less invasive protocols. Get clinical, hands-on tools to help you make informed decisions on precisely what tests and imaging studies are needed for accurate diagnosis and staging. Clear figures, tables, and boxes illustrate step-by-step care of the full range of problems encountered. The small size and convenient format make this an ideal purchase for diagnostic reference.
  • Outlines the steps after diagnosis to guide you through formulating a treatment or patient care plan.
  • Emphasizes important points—such as risk-adjusted screening for staging and the use of promising new gene therapies—with “key points boxes at the beginning of each chapter and pedagogic features throughout.
  • Summarizes the process of accurately diagnosing and staging cancer in a logical, almost algorithmic, approach for easy reference.
  • Complements the procedures outlined in the text with full-color photographs and line drawings to reinforce your understanding of the material.
