Editorial Reviews

From the reviews of the seventh edition:"Provide a new organ-specific classification that oncologists and other professionals who manage patients with cancer need in order to accurately classify tumours for staging. . a 'Bible' for oncologists, pathologists and surgeons, being also useful for all health officers, including general physicians and students, who want to remain updated in oncology. . this is a book that has to be present in all diagnostic imaging departments, as a major support to produce information adequate to the new oncology algorithms."­­­ (Vincenzo Cuccurullo and Luigi Mansi, European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Vol. 38, 2011)
