Defining the Precursor Tissue of Ordinary Large Bowel Carcinoma: Implications for Cancer Prevention
To accomplish the purpose indicated in the title of this chapter, i.e., to define the precursor tissue of ordinary large bowel carcinoma, particular attention has been given to terminology. We have attempted to use simple and accurate terms, with the help of diagrams and illustrations, so that internists, surgeons, radiologists, and pathologists will have the same mental image and hence the ease of communication so needed for proper diagnosis and treatment in this field.
