Handbook of Lung Cancer and Other Thoracic Malignancies

 Oncology  Comments Off on Handbook of Lung Cancer and Other Thoracic Malignancies
Feb 172018
 

In many ways, the field of lung cancer research is leading the way in personalized oncologic care, with numerous new treatment strategies moving from clinical trials to standard clinical practice within the past 10 years; and, there are no indications of bench-to-bedside innovations slowing down.

Handbook of Thoracic Oncology is a practical guide to the multidisciplinary management of patients with lung cancer and other thoracic malignancies. The content highlights the applications of both conventional and novel treatment strategies to the care of real-life patients with lung cancer. Unlike many oncology textbooks that exhaustively list studies of historical or failed approaches, this handbook focuses on the application of practical, current management options to specific patient subsets and the data that specifically support these strategies. The format is open and readable with bulleted points presenting overall treatment guidelines as well as more nuanced applications of these treatments to individual patient groups. The clear focus of this book is on the question that all oncologists ask themselves every day, “How do I take care of this person sitting in front of me?” This handbook is an indispensable guide for all oncologists and practitioners who regularly care for lung cancer patients and those suffering from mesothelioma, thymic tumors, and pulmonary neuro-endocrine tumors.

Features:

– Delivers the need-to-know points of lung cancer screening, diagnosis and staging, and appropriate multidisciplinary management for all major thoracic malignancies
– Provides clinical pearls and treatment recommendations for patients who don’t ‘fit’ the standard guidelines
– Includes specific coverage on Management of Elderly and High-Risk Patients
– Prepares physicians to notice and eliminate common errors in clinical practice when managing patients with lung cancer and other thoracic tumors
