Radiologists have an increasingly important role to play in the early detection, staging and treatment of malignant disease. A detailed knowledge of both benign and malignant tumours is necesseary for accurate image interpretation, in addition to the ability to evaluate the scope and limitations of the various imaging modalities available. This CD-ROM provides a comprehensive account of imaging in oncology and is intended as a reference for radiologists and oncologists in practice and in training. It covers: general principles; primary tumour staging; haematological malignancy; paediatrics; metastases; treatment evaluation; effects of treatment on normal tissue; and AIDS-related tumours. A feature of the book is the use of the TNM staging system - the standard system used by radiologists and oncologists for the accurate staging of tumours, nodules and metastases - and its basis on the protocols drawn up by the International Union Against Cancer. All images are complemented by colour line drawings to assist in the interpretation and the diagnosis of tumours, and tables, checklists, flow-charts, algorithms and end-of-chapter summaries highlight and reference key points.
