Cancer Dissemination Pathways


This series aims to describe pathways of cancer dissemination in a practical and clinically driven approach that will enable the reader to define cancer dissemination accurately and thus to predict patient outcome and select the best therapeutic option. Each volume will include an introduction on the role of morphopathological and genetic drivers of cancer spread, followed by a chapter describing the anatomy, pathways of diffusion, and signs of disease. The subsequent chapters will include a systematic review of pathways of dissemination of each neoplasm. The content will be presented in an extremely schematic way, with high-quality illustrations and images obtained with different modalities (US, CT, MRI, and PET). The clinical significance of findings and possible therapeutic options will also be discussed whenever significant. Dynamic images will be included in the online version.
