Radiologia oncologica

Nuclear medicine in prostate cancer management

Laura Evangelista, Francesco Ceci

editore: Minerva Medica

pagine: 146

Prostate cancer imaging has evolved rapidly dur¬ing the last years, moving toward a more person¬alized approach. The comprehensive evaluation of tumor biology alongside the evaluation of different patterns of expression by cancer clones has become an attractive field of investigation for molecular imaging. Next-generation imaging represents a ground-breaking approach, deliver¬ing to patients more accurate diagnostic proce¬dures and leading clinicians to identify specific targets for radioligand therapy. The theragnos¬tic approach-therapy and diagnosis using the same probe-represents, probably, one of the most important innovations in the management of prostate cancer. Hence, the rapid introduction into clinical practice of small molecules bind¬ing prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) represents a brilliant example of how transla¬tional imaging should work. Prostate cancer, as one of the most frequent tumors and causes of death, still represents a hard enemy to fight, but next-generation imaging and radioligand therapy are innovative weapons that might contribute to improve outcomes and quality of life in men affected by the disease

Head and Neck Cancer Imaging

A. L. Baert, Robert Hermans

editore: Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. K

pagine: 382

This book provides a comprehensive review of state-of-the-art imaging in head and neck cancer. Precise determination of tumor extent is of the utmost importance in these neoplasms, as it has important consequences for staging of disease, prediction of outcome and choice of treatment. Only the radiologist can fully appreciate submucosal, perineural, and perivascular tumor spread, and detect metastatic disease at an early stage. Imaging is also of considerable benefit for patient surveillance after treatment. All imaging modalities currently used in the management of head and neck neoplasms are considered in depth, and in addition newer techniques such as PET-CT and diffusion-weighted MRI are discussed. This book will help the reader to recommend, execute and report head and neck imaging studies at a high level of sophistication and thereby to become a respected member of the team managing head and neck cancer.

Imaging in Oncology

Janet E. Husband, Rodney H. Reznek

editore: Informa Healthcare

pagine: 1800

In recent years the central role of imaging in the management of patients with cancer has become blantantly apparent. The second edition of this widely acclaimed book builds on the foundations laid down by the first edition, the 1998 winner of the Royal Society's award for the Multi-author Textbook of the Year. The core of Imaging in Oncology, Second Edition deals with the application of imaging in all tumours with an extensively referenced, evidence-based analysis of its role in planning treatment. Contributors provide experienced opinion as to the advantages and limitations of all relevant imaging modalities including ultrasound, CT, MRI, PET/CT and other nuclear medicine techniques. Imaging of metastatic disease is covered in detail with chapters detailing the range of appearances of deposits in each organ. Much attention is given to the differential diagnosis of focal organ pathology in patients with underlying malignancy and useful protocols for the performance of the study provided. While including a section on new horizons in cancer imaging, such as the imaging of angiogenesis, MR lymphography and the rapidly evolving field of molecular imaging, Husband and Reznek have not neglected the more traditional general principles of cancer behaviour and imaging. Hence, an outline of cancer surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy is provided by experts. As therapy becomes more successful, increasingly important issues for the radiologist such as the assessment of response, the effect of treatment on normal tissues, the complications of treatment, and the risk of second malignancies are presented. There are several outstanding features to Imaging in Oncology: the colour diagrams of the staging systems are exquisite and allow the often complex systems to be understood easily and memorized; the organization of the book into different, clearly defined sections allows it to be used not only as a reliable reference text, but also to be read easily; key points and summaries in point form are provided throughout for quick revision. This comprehensive reference text is not only essential reading for all radiologists, but is also important for all members of a multidisciplinary team looking after cancer patients.

Radiation Oncology for Cure and Palliation

Michael T. Selch, Nora A. Janjan
e altri

editore: Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. K

pagine: 300

Given that treatment with curative intent is possible in only one-half of cancer victims, and that such treatment frequently fails, the majority of patients with cancer will require relief of symptoms and signs caused by their disease. In this book, the specific contribution of radiation therapy to palliation is considered within the context of multidisciplinary management. Individual chapters are devoted to palliative radiation therapy for primary tumours and metastases at different sites. The management of pain is discussed, and chapters are also devoted to end of life care, the management of complications of radiation therapy, and useful medications. This book will prove useful to radiation oncologists and medical students.
