About this book


This is a comprehensive textbook that provides a detailed description of the imaging techniques and findings in patients with benign and malignant bone tumors. In the first part of the book, the various techniques and procedures employed for imaging bone tumors are discussed in detail. Individual chapters are devoted to MRI, CT, nuclear medicine, and interventional procedures. The second part of the book gives an authoritative review of the role of these imaging techniques in diagnosis, surgical staging, biopsy, and assessment of response to therapy. The third part of the book covers the imaging features of each major tumor subtype, with separate chapters on osteogenic tumors, cartilaginous tumors, etc. The final part of the book reviews the imaging features of bone tumors at particular anatomical sites such as the spine, ribs, pelvis, and scapula. Each chapter is written by an acknowledged expert in the field, and a wealth of illustrative material is included. This book will be of great value to musculoskeletal and general radiologists, orthopedic surgeons, and oncologists.

From the reviews:

“The book starts with an introductory chapter on bone tumour epidemiology, classification and pathology … . The editors and their international team of experts in the field have produced an important and impressive book giving the radiologist (expert or in training) as well orthopaedic surgeons and oncologists a reference text to be used in daily practice in order to obtain the best results in patient care, a text I am sure will shortly become a must in radiology departments and clinics.” (G. Beluffi, La Radiologia Medica, Vol. 117, 2012)

“The book provides a current detailed review of bone tumors and tumorlike conditions that is targeted at radiologists, as well as orthopedic surgeons, oncologists, and pathologists who are focused on this area. … book succeeds in providing detailed and comprehensive information. The quality of the printing, paper, and tables is superior. … This textbook is recommended for general and musculoskeletal radiologists, as well as other subspecialists who are interested in musculoskeletal oncology.” (Alison R. Spouge, Radiology, Vol. 257 (3), December, 2010)

“This comprehensive textbook is written by a large, international group of 57 collaborating authors ... . This unique book will be of great help to musculoskeletal and general radiologists in their daily clinical practices. Orthopedic surgeons and oncologists also will find the book useful for guiding them in the therapeutic management of their patients. This book should also be placed in medical and radiology libraries as a reference for the evaluation of bone tumors and tumorlike lesions.” (E. Edmund Kim, The Journal of Nuclear Medicine, Vol. 51 (8), August, 2010)
