Abstract

Endoscopic Oncology: Gastrointestinal Endoscopy and Cancer Management examines the interface between endoscopy and oncology, and its utilization in the prevention, diagnosis, and management of cancer. Organized anatomically, chapters covering relevant cancers and premalignant conditions of the esophagus, stomach, colorectum, and pancreaticobiliary are explored in depth. This volume presents the reader with chapters summarizing state-of-the-art endoscopic medical and surgical cancer treatment, including endoscopic mucosal resection, photodynamic therapy, and palliative stent placement. Extensive coverage is given to colonoscopy, endoscopic ultrasound, esophagogastroduodendoscopy, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, and all of the major endoscopic procedures. Endoscopic Oncology: Gastrointestinal Endoscopy and Cancer Management is written with the practicing endoscopist in mind. Given the multidisciplinary approach of modern cancer care, this book is a must have for all health care professionals who take care of cancer patients, including medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and surgeons.
