About this book

Covering all aspects of thyroid cancer, including nodules, pathology, thyroid and whole-body scans, ultrasounds, and other nuclear medicine and radiological studies, as well as follow-up testing and prognosis, Thyroid Cancer in Clinical Practice addresses important issues that physicians should cover when dealing with their patients. It also tackles the treatment of differentiated thyroid cancer (the commonest variety) and all aspects of management including surgery, the role and logistics of radioactive iodine and long-term prescription of thyroid hormone. The management of thyroid cancer in adults, children and pregnant women are covered separately. The book also includes images and up-to-date procedures such as fused Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography (PET/CT) images.

This pocket-sized book provides an easily accessible source of information to supplement existing large texts and provide a handy reference for everyday use for physicians, including primary care doctors, practitioners and trainees in endocrinology, nuclear medicine, oncology, surgery, including otolaryngology, radiation and medical oncology, and internal medicine. It is also a substantial resource for patients with thyroid cancer as well as residents, medical students, and nurse practitioners.

Reviews

"...This book is unique because the author provides a hands-on guide to how to take care of patients based on his extensive experience. This is information that is often difficult to find in a traditional textbook. It would be a helpful resource for a clinician who doesn't know how to best manage a particular patient ..."
