Written by internationally renowned authors, this title is an invaluable reference for all those required to report on MR examinations, with accurate cancer staging aided by the extensive use of high quality MR images of pelvic cancer.

Each chapter gives a short account of every disease and a set of images demonstrating the tumour, node and metastasis stages, based on the 2010 UICC/AJCC staging system.

A highly useful resource, this guide also:

  • Introduces pelvic cancer staging, MRI technique, and pelvic anatomy
  • Presents a comprehensive set of state-of-the-art images of the various pelvic cancers
  • Contains illustrations of recurrent disease and appearances following chemo-radiotherapy
  • Discusses imaging before exenterative surgery and the imaging of metastatic disease within the pelvis

What's new to this edition:

  • New techniques in a number of pelvic cancers, including cervical, endometrial, ovarian and vaginal cancer, such as MR diffusion, MR spectroscopy and Dynamic Contrast Imaging
  • Image findings post chemoradiation for cervical, rectal and bladder cancer
  • New section on image findings in brachytherapy for prostate cancer
  • Brand new chapter on penile cancer
