This second of two volumes on Cancer Imaging covers the three major topics of imaging instrumentation, general imaging applications, and imaging of a number of human cancer types. Where the first volume emphasized lung and breast carcinomas, Volume 2 focuses on prostate, colorectal, ovarian, gastrointestinal, and bone cancers. Although cancer therapy is not the main subject of this series, the crucial role of imaging in selecting the type of therapy and its post-treatment assessment are discussed. The major emphasis in this volume is on cancer imaging; however, differentiation between benign tumors and malignant tumors is also discussed.

This volume is sold individually, and Cancer Imaging, Volume 1 [ISBN: 978-0-12-370468-9] sells separately for $189 and also as part of a two volume set [ISBN: 978-0-12-374212-4] for $299.

Key Features

Concentrates on the application of imaging technology to the diagnosis and prognosis of prostate, colorectal, ovarian, gastrointestinal, and bone cancers Addresses relationship between radiation dose and image quality Discusses the role of molecular imaging in identifying changes for the emergence and progression of cancer at the cellular and/or molecular levels


Medical, hospital, and 4-year university libraries; medical students, residents, physicians, pathologists and molecular pathologists conducting academic and clinical research; cell and cancer biologists, immunologists, bioinformaticists, and reproductive endocrinologists.
