Summary Radioguided Surgery is a multidisciplinary book designed for all physicians involved in the diagnosis and care of cancer patients, including nuclear medicine physicians, general surgeons, oncologists, and pathologists. The contributors to this book-among them some of the most prestigious experts in the field-provide comprehensive coverage of all aspects of radioguided surgery, from training and radiation protection to sentinel lymph node biopsy and non-sentinel lymph node applications for various cancers, tumors and lesions. More than a hundred illustrations, including a full-color insert, help to facilitate understanding of new concepts. Given its depth of information and concise, clear presentation, Radioguided Surgery is an indispensable resource in this innovative and increasingly integral field.
