Key Features:

  • An international team of editors and contributors from a variety of different specialties
  • Thoroughly updated to include recent advances in molecular biology and diagnostic imaging
  • A greatly expanded section on reconstruction to reflect the importance of this area
  • An improved balance of content to enhance the multidisciplinary approach
