About this book

Introduction

Dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI is now established as the methodology of choice for the assessment of tumor microcirculation in vivo. This is assisting clinical practitioners in the management of patients with solid tumors and is finding prominence in the assessment of tumor treatments, including anti-angiogenics, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy. In this book, targeted at both clinical practitioners and basic scientists, the principles of the methods, their practical implementation, and their application to specific tumor types are discussed by the leading authorities in the field today. The book will serve as an invaluable single-volume reference covering all the latest developments in contrast-enhanced oncological MRI.
