Overview

Each volume in the Early Detection and Treatment of Cancer Series is packed with practical, authoritative information designed to cover the full range of diagnostic procedures, including pathologic, radiologic, bronchoscopic, and surgical aspects. You’ll be able to determine the safest, shortest, least invasive way to reach an accurate diagnosis; stage the disease; and choose the best initial treatment for early stages. Based on current evidence in the literature, authors provide clinical, hands-on tools to help you make informed decisions on precisely what tests and imaging studies are needed to diagnose and stage each type of cancer. Practical, authoritative, and highly-illustrated, this volume in the brand new Early Detection and Treatment of Cancer series covers current protocols and the latest advances in diagnostic imaging and molecular and serologic markers for colon cancer. Apply expert advice on the best “next-step” plan for different presentations and tips for less invasive protocols. Get clinical, hands-on tools to help you make informed decisions on precisely what tests and imaging studies are needed for accurate diagnosis and staging. Clear figures, tables, and boxes illustrate step-by-step care of the full range of problems encountered. Better manage your patients with procedural video clips and more on the included CD-ROM. The small size and convenient format make this an ideal purchase for diagnostic reference.

• Outlines the steps after diagnosis to guide you through formulating a treatment or patient care plan.

• Emphasizes important points—such as risk-adjusted screening for staging and the use of promising new gene therapies—with “key points” boxes at the beginning of each chapter and pedagogic features throughout.

• Summarizes the process of accurately diagnosing and staging cancer in a logical, almost algorithmic, approach for easy reference.

• Complements the procedures outlined in the text with full-color photographs and line drawings to reinforce your understanding of the material.

• Features a CD-ROM showing video clips of diagnostic procedures, as well as all of the images, tables, and drawings from the text to help you better manage your patients.

Editorial Reviews

Doody Reviews
Reviewer: John C. Byrn, MD (University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics)
Description: Part of the series, Early Diagnosis and Treatment of Cancer, this book covers the third most common cancer, that of the colon and rectum.
Purpose: The book is meant as introduction to the epidemiology, diagnosis, staging, and treatment of colorectal cancer.
Audience: Resident and practicing physicians are the intended audience. All disciplines involved in the treatment of patients with colorectal cancer are targeted, including radiologists, oncologists, and surgeons.
Features: The book serves as an introduction for practicing physicians to the comprehensive care of colorectal cancer patients. It covers all aspects of the disease process and treatment including epidemiology, risk factors, dietary considerations, chemotherapy, genetics, and surgical treatments. The "key points" at the beginning of each chapter provide structured goals for readers and enable quick progress through complex topics.
Assessment: This book fills a niche in the literature in terms of its attention to all aspects of the care of patients. As a surgeon, my readings are often focused on the surgical aspects of the disease. This book directs attention to all aspects of the disease process and treatment.

From the Publisher
"Profiling the third most common cancer for both incidence and death in the US, Gearhart and Ahuja (both surgery and oncology, Johns Hopkins U.) have assembled studies by colleagues to introduce the current understanding of the epidemiology, risk factors, and treatment options for colorectal cancer. The goal, as for the series as a whole, is to provide safe and effective information to help clinicians arrive at a diagnosis, obtain accurate clinical staging of the disease, and choose the best method of treatment. Among the topics are hereditary colorectal cancer and polyp syndromes, behavior and dietary modification in prevention, fecal occult blood test, colonoscopy and flexible sigmoidoscopy in colorectal cancer screening and surveillance, radiological techniques for virtual colonoscopy, open surgical techniques, systemic therapy, why to participate in clinical trials, vaccines and immunotherapy, and coping with colorectal cancer."
