Prominent physicians review past, current, and future applications of the many powerful imaging techniques now used in the diagnosis, staging, treatment, and outcomes assessment of cancers of the prostate, central nervous system (CNS), and breast. Topics range from the use of screening mammography and approaches to breast cancer detection using MRI to improved visualization of the prostate gland from transrectal ultrasound and MRI, to MRI-guided resection of neoplasms.
From the reviews:
"...brings together in one volume a wealth of information on imaging in the diagnosis and treatment of three major cancers...provides new and valuable information that will most likely benefit students and trainees in the oncologic disciplines...a welcome addition to many oncologists' reference libraries." - International Journal of Radiation Oncology/Biology/Physics
"...provides a very comprehensive review of prostate biopsy and prostate brachytherapy and it offers an insightful glimpse into how we may manage cancer in the future." -- BJU International
"This book aims at describing the past, current and future applications of imaging in the diagnosis, staging, and treatment outcome assessment of different tumors, such as cancer of the prostate gland, the central nervous system and the breast. ... In summary, the book is a very specialized volume on three tumorous entities with a special focus on new magnetic resonance-guided procedures. It can be especially recommended to interventional magnetic resonance specialists as well as colleagues from the area of oncology." (A. K. Dixon and T. J. Vogl, European Radiology, Vol. 15, October, 2005)
