About this book

Cancer detection and treatment have been greatly enhanced by advances in imaging technology during the last decade. In Image-Guided Diagnosis and Treatment of Cancer, prominent physicians, expert in their fields, review past, current, and future applications of the many powerful imaging techniques now used in the diagnosis, staging, treatment, and outcome assessment of cancers of the prostate, central nervous system (CNS), and breast. The distinguished authors first consider the use of screening mammography and approaches to breast cancer detection using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and then demonstrate how improved visualization of the prostate gland from transrectal ultrasound and MRI has made it possible to diagnose prostate cancer and perform minimally invasive delivery of high-dose radiation to the tumor-bearing region(s) of the gland with minimal toxicity. Also treated is MRI-guided resection of neoplasms, which allows for minimally invasive biopsy and neurosurgery with maximum benefits. In addition, the use of sophisticated imaging technology to assess response to chemotherapy, map temperature profiles, and visualize gene expression in vivo are also discussed.
State-of-the-art and forward-looking, Image-Guided Diagnosis and Treatment of Cancer will serve as the long-awaited, gold standard guide to optimal practice in medical imaging for prostate, breast, and CNS cancers, and point clearly toward the novel image guidance methods emerging today.
