“This is very comprehensive, up-to-date (eg PET scans and new genetic markers included), and includes online access. It would be a good companion to a regular oncology text book which will not contain this degree of pathological detail and, as such, it could take some of the mystery out of the pathologist’s interpretation of surgical specimens in the MDT!” Judges quote
