About this book


Lung Cancer Imaging provides a clinically focused guide to the diagnosis, staging, and management of lung cancer.  It incorporates a multi-disciplinary approach to the understanding of the causes of lung cancer and treatment of this disorder.  This book presents the epidemiology and classification of lung cancer; screening protocols; imaging in non-small cell lung cancer; preoperative evaluation for lung cancer resection; staging and imaging of small cell carcinoma; surgical treatment for non-small cell lung cancer; the use of radiotherapy in lung cancer; and imaging following lung cancer treatment. With contributions from a distinguished group of thoracic oncology specialists, it is an authoritative resource for radiologists, oncologists, pulmonologists, and thoracic surgeons.
