Brain tumors have a longstanding reputation for being intractable to therapy, and with evidence suggesting that the incidence of some brain tumors is increasing, this has become the most feared cancer. However, with improvements in imaging technologies, radiation therapy and chemotherapy , as well as a greater knowledge of the genetic causes of brain tumors, better diagnosis and treatment is available, providing a more optimistic outlook for patients. This book, written by leading professionals in the field of neuro-oncology, provides a valuable overview and presentation of the most up-to-date ideas in the diagnosis, treatment and management of intracranial tumors. Covering the most current diagnostic and therapeutic tools available including MRI, stereotactic needle biopsy, functional MRI, 3D conformal radiotherapy, radiosurgery, fractionated stereotactic radiotherapy, new chemotherapy agents and novel regimens, gene therapy and anti-angiogenesis factors, it will be of great interest to all.
