Reviews

From the reviews: This is a multidisciplinary book covering all aspects of radioisotope guided surgery for all practitioners involved in the field. The book distinguishes itself from others in the field by the clarity and breadth of explanation ! . This is intended primarily for those actually involved in the field -- not just surgeons, but all physicians involved in the care of cancer patients ! . Practitioners and trainees in the subspecialty fields of surgical oncology, endocrine surgery, nuclear medicine, and pathology will find it of use. (Carol EH Scott-Conner, MD, PhD, Doody's Review Service, March, 2008) This is a new, updated publication, which has the merit of giving wide and deep information about a field, radioguided surgery ! . It is designed with a multidisciplinary approach and addressed not only to nuclear physicians but also to surgeons, oncologists, pathologists ! . In conclusion, the book is an original and effective publication that we recommend to all physicians both qualified and in training, including students, who are already working in the field ! .
