Description

Lymphatic mapping techniques have provenare proving to be crucial to the early detection and safe treatment of gynecological and breast cancers. However, there has not been a single, comprehensive resource on this topic. Until now. In Clinical Lymphatic Mapping of Gynecologic Cancers, such techniques are fully explained, with an emphasis on the concept of sentinel lymph node detection.

The book provides a historical perspective, an understanding of the associated modalities of pathology and diagnostic imaging, a disease site-specific review of the literature, and step-by-step descriptions of how to identify sentinel nodes. The text is fully illustrated, allowing readers to quickly grasp the techniques and examine the analysis of the results. The editors address the entire breadth of the topic, making this an ideal reference for newly qualified professionals and students in gynecological oncology and breast cancer.

Reviews

'A first in the field … valuable information on the technical aspects … For surgeons managing women with these types of cancer, such a book would be a welcome addition.' - EJSO, the Journal of Cancer Surgery (2005) 31, 559
