About this book


Liver Metastasis: Biology, Diagnosis and Treatment offers a comprehensive overview of liver metastasis by providing a collection of pivotal contributions from an international faculty. A wide range of topics are presented, with each contributor focusing on his own area of expertise to provide the latest techniques as well as valuable insights based on a wealth of experience. Epidemiological and biological aspects are discussed, diagnostic and staging problems are reported, and all treatment modalities are analysed including gene therapy, immunotherapy and palliative care. The standard approaches to diagnosis and therapy are examined whilst new and future trends are reported on and explored. Of interest to both specialists and postgraduates in the fields of oncology and gastroenterology this book will also be of interest to researchers in internal medicine.
