By Jean-Francois H. Geschwind, Michael C. Soulen

Interventional oncology has emerged as an incredible area of expertise inside of melanoma care, delivering special treatment and palliative merits with no the negative effects of chemotherapy, surgical procedure and radiation. masking the foundations of present and rising interventional oncology strategies and special analysis, staging and remedy algorithms, this publication outlines the ways that those image-guided treatments can tell melanoma administration options. entry to the most up-tp-date details is key during this quickly growing to be and evolving zone of perform. This re-creation displays the newest medical info on interventional oncology techniques. Chapters on photo information and focusing on, tumor ablation, embolotherapy, and reaction evaluation were up to date to mirror significant technological advances, and new fabric on microwave ablation and irreversible electroporation has been further. This helpful source for interventional radiologists presents crucial schooling and advice at the complete variety of minimally invasive image-guided techniques and their integration into accomplished melanoma care.
