About this Book

Are you involved in the diagnosis and management of patients with gastrointestinal cancer

Gastrointestinal Endoscopy in the Cancer Patient provides you with a full color, highly clinical, multi-media tool focused on the role diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy plays in the management of patients with cancer.

With chapters authored by the world's leading endoscopy and oncology experts and edited by a highly experienced editor team, you'll find a level of clinical excellence that is unsurpassed in other books on this topic. 

Covering GI cancer from both the perspective of the gastroenterologist and the oncologist, it contains approximately 400 quality color images and 21 high-definition videos showing endoscopy being performed by the experts.

Conveniently split into sections for each part of the GI tract, including the esophagus, stomach, upper GI, lower GI, pancreas and liver/biliary system, each section follows a consistent structure of:

  • Diagnosis and Staging of premalignant and malignant conditions
  • Endoscopic management of premalignant and early malignant diseases
  • Palliation of advanced tumors
  • Oncologist's perspective
