'Clinical Oncology' has established itself as a comprehensive yet concise textbook covering modern cancer treatment. This is a unique text conveying the whole breadth of cancer medicine from epidemiology, aetiology, pathology and presentation through to staging, management and prognosis for any chosen malignancy.
The inclusion of over 150 high quality illustrations alongside new clinical trial boxes will assist the reader in understanding the field of clinical oncology and the contemporary and multi-disciplinary management of cancer patients.
'Clinical Oncology' will prove an invaluable text for undergraduate medical students and health care professionals dealing with cancer patients, particularly nurses and therapy radiographers, and will serve as an update for qualified doctors outside the speciality.
The textbook is well written, easy to read and the authors fulfill their ambition for a short and up-to-date textbook primarily for undergraduates, junior doctors and nurses and is recommended for the libraries in oncology departments.
