Field of medicine: Gastrointestinal oncology.
Format: Softcover book.
Audience: Physicians who care for patients with gastrointestinal malignant or premalignant conditions.
Purpose: To provide an up-to-date, concise, and multidisciplinary guide to current management of gastrointestinal malignant conditions, including care delivered by internists, gastroenterologists, interventional radiologists, oncologists, and surgeons.
Content: Thirty-one expert authors from 13 institutions survey the gastrointestinal tract, describing current diagnostic and therapeutic techniques for esophageal, gastric, pancreaticobiliary, and colorectal malignancies. Therapeutic interventions are presented from the perspectives of the endoscopist, the interventional radiologist, the surgeon, the medical oncologist, and the radiation therapist. This text is an up-to-date reference that includes contributions from authors from several disciplines who are united by their common interest and expertise in gastrointestinal malignant conditions. It provides the physician-reader with descriptions of the capabilities of other specialists; this information may facilitate integration of these capabilities to optimize patient care.
