About this Book
Gastrointestinal Oncology: A Critical Multidisciplinary Team Approach is the first evidence-based reference text designed for the multidisciplinary team of medical professionals involved in the investigation, diagnosis, and management of patients with gastrointestinal cancer. Written and edited by leading international experts in the field it sets the standard in clinical practice for dealing with esophageal, gastric, intestinal, colonic, hepatobiliary, pancreatic, and other GI tumors.
The book is divided into twenty-five clinical chapters each addressing the specific cancers affecting the gastrointestinal tract. Each chapter is written by a team of authors, with each contributor specially chosen to represent a different role in the MDT. This multidisciplinary team approach reflects the current care of GI cancer patients and enables clinical decision making and patient management. All the chapters have been tried and tested in MDT meetings in leading cancer centers around the world.
Gastrointestinal Oncology: A Critical Multidisciplinary Team Approach provides in-depth evidence-based knowledge and is well illustrated throughout with color photographs, line drawings, and diagrams. This authoritative and practical resource is an essential reference for the entire MDT including gastroenterologists, hepatologists, GI surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation therapists, interventional radiologists, pathologists, specialist nurses, and clinical scientists.
