Description

Although the field of Neuro-Oncology has grown considerably in the last 10 to 15 years and has a rather extensive literature, there are no comprehensive, “single-source” books that summarize the current literature and future trends of neuroimaging in neuro-oncology. This book covers this topic in more comprehensive fashion, making it an important addition to the armamentarium of physicians that care for patients with brain tumors and other neuro-oncological disorders. Well-founded in basic science, it includes chapters that provide an overview of relevant background material in critical areas such as physics, contrast agents, ultra-high field brain MRI, and molecular imaging.

Readership

Neurosurgeons, neuro-oncologists, neuroradiologists, oncologists, neurologists, and researchers (within oncology and radiology) with an interest in neuroimaging and neuro-oncology.

About the Editor

Herbert B. Newton

Dr. Newton is currently the Director of the Neuro-Oncology Program at the Wallace Kettering Neuroscience Institute, Kettering Medical Center, and Kettering Cancer Center. He recently retired as a Professor of Neurology, Neurosurgery, & Oncology at the Wexner Medical Center at Ohio State University and the James Cancer Hospital, and was the holder of the Esther Dardinger Endowed Chair in Neuro-Oncology. He trained in Neuro-Oncology with Drs. Jerome Posner and William Shapiro at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, and since then has been in academic Neuro-Oncology for over 20 years. He has published more than 200 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters, and is the Chief Editor or Co-Editor of seven textbooks in the field of Neurology and Neuro-Oncology. In addition, he has been listed as a Best Doctor (Neurology) and Top Doctor for Cancer (Neuro-Oncology) for the past 15 years.
