A clear guide to the complex issue of cancer grading
Ideal for use in the daily practice of diagnostic pathology
Systematically covers the grading of cancers in all major organ systems
Concise text and informative illustrations, supplemented by summarizing tables
This is the second edition of a practice-oriented, well-illustrated manual on the microscopic grading of tumors that addresses all relevant histopathologic aspects of tumor pathology. After an introduction on the history and basic tenets of tumor grading, subsequent chapters focus on specific organ systems. In each case, the most widely used system for grading common tumors is presented and discussed. Throughout, careful attention is paid to the principles of microscopic tumor grading, ancillary methods to improve grading, and the latest techniques used in evaluating tumors and formulating prognosis.
Since the first edition, all chapters have been updated to reflect revisions in the clinical practice of pathology and to explain the role of novel immunohistochemistry and molecular biology techniques. In addition, a new chapter is devoted to the latest trends in cancer grading. Additional illustrations have been included, and other illustrations replaced by more representative examples. References have also been fully updated. Cancer Grading Manual is a superb resource for both diagnostic surgical pathologists and pathology residents.
