In Interventional Oncology: Principles and Practice, expert
editors have brought together the accrued experience of pioneers and
leaders in image-guided cancer therapy from around the globe to create
the first comprehensive text for this emerging field. Covering the
biology, techniques, clinical applications, and outcomes of
interventional oncologic procedures for the treatment and palliation of
solid tumors throughout the body, this practical reference will be
indispensible for physicians across specialties who seek to provide
collaborative, leading-edge care to cancer patients.
