This succinct compendium focuses on the key practical aspects of head and neck cancer imaging. It also provides essential information on handling and analyzing imaging data.
Head and neck cancer is the sixth most common cancer worldwide. CT and MRI imaging are absolutely crucial to accurate diagnosis and staging, and radiologists have to be especially familiar with the anatomy of that region of the body. In addition, they must be highly proficient in interpreting radiographic images in order to judge the patterns of metastasis, response to treatment, and the signs and patterns of recurrence.
This concise but detailed book describes the latest imaging modalities for all types of head and neck cancer diagnosis in light of recent technological advances. Featuring abundant high-quality images supplemented by advice from experts on the management of each cancer, it is a valuable resource for diagnostic and general radiologists, as well as all medical staff involved in the management of head and neck cancers.
