About this book


Pediatric Malignanies: Pathology and Imaging serves as a state-of-the-art reference for understanding the fundamental biology and diagnostic aspects of pediatric tumors. This volume stands apart from other books covering pediatric neoplasia by providing an in-depth analysis of the pathogenetic and diagnostic aspects of the most commonly encountered tumors. The volume covers the new advances in our understanding of the molecular processes underlying a number of pediatric tumors and the novel, sophisticated diagnostic tools that have now become an integral part of practice standards.

Pediatric Malignanies: Pathology and Imaging will be of great value for practicing clinicians, oncologists, radiologists, surgeons, pediatricians and pathologists for characterizing and diagnosing childhood tumors.
