About this book


In a period of controversial attitudes to thyroid cancer, this book aims to correlate recent progress in basic sciences with new clinical management possibilities. It deals with the epidemiology, pathology, pathophysiology, etiology, diagnosis, therapy and follow-up of this disease based on 27 years' experience with some 2000 thyroid cancer cases. The inclusion of ultrasound, CT, NMR imaging and modern surgical techniques for combined treatment modalities is new. Guidelines for further research and improved therapy are set and an extensive review of the literature is provided. This up-to-date survey will offer clinicians, surgeons and researchers a better understanding of thyroid cancer in its entirety.
