Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From the reviews:

"This is the third volume of the MD Anderson Cancer Care Series, detailing their standard approach to care of patients with gastrointestinal cancer. It emphasises the day-to-day aspects of medical care, minimising both extensive literature review and approaches not yet incorporated into routine practice. It is a pleasant soft-backed volume of 394 pages with 61 diagrams and scans; there are also liberal tables. … a useful addition to every departmental library." (Dr. C. L. Harmer, RAD Magazine, November, 2005)
