Item description for Imaging of Kidney Cancer (Medical Radiology / Diagnostic Imaging) by Ali Guermazi...
This is one of the first books to deal specifically with diagnostic imaging of the entire spectrum of kidney cancers. It fully considers both new and conventional imaging modalities. After an introductory chapter on the histopathological classification of kidney cancers, the authors document the advantages and disadvantages of the various imaging modalities used in the diagnosis and assessment of disease extension. Subsequent chapters offer an exhaustive description of the radiological features of the different histological subtypes of kidney cancer, with radiological and histological illustrations and tables. The latest innovations in interventional and minimally invasive procedures are also well covered. The book benefits from carefully chosen and technically excellent images. Internationally acclaimed experts have written each of the 24 chapters, making this book the most current and complete treatment of the subject available. It should be of great interest to radiologists, oncologists, and urologists.
