About this book

This book describes the pathways of dissemination of primary liver, biliary, and pancreatic neoplasms and proposes a practical and clinically driven approach to their imaging. The typical dissemination pathways for hepatocellular carcinoma, cholangiocarcinoma, exocrine pancreatic carcinoma, and neuroendocrine pancreatic tumors are systematically reviewed, and more unusual pathways are also documented. The content is presented in an extremely schematic way, with numerous high-quality graphical illustrations and multimodality images (US, CT, MRI, and PET) that are accompanied by clear explanatory text. The clinical significance of findings and potential therapeutic options are explained whenever appropriate. In addition, relevant background information is provided on the role of morphopathological drivers of cancer spread and anatomy.

Reviews

“This slim book is in a series devoted to pathways of cancer dissemination and therefore differs from the usual textbooks of tumour radiology. … I really enjoyed this book, and its main theme on how dissemination pathways result in both imaging features and relate to guidelines and staging protocols is well done.” (Philip Shorvon, RAD Magazine, February, 2019)
“It proposes a practical and clinically driven approach to tumor dissemination through imaging. … The contents are well conceived, well organized, and well presented with numerous high-quality graphical illustrations and multimodality images. … this is an outstanding book that makes a fine addition to the radiologist's arsenal.” (Ravi Salgia, Doody's Book Reviews, June, 2018)
