Book Description

Lymphatic mapping techniques have proven to be useful to the early detection and safe treatment of endometrial and cervical cancers; however, the techniques have much of value to offer for breast cancer also and particularly for vulvar cancer, where there has been an explosion of interest and research. In the new edition of Clinical Lymphatic Mapping of Gynecologic Cancers, the techniques are fully explained, with consideration of the latest developments and technologies.
