Written by a team of expert authors from all members of the multidisciplinary cancer care team, Pancreatic Cancer summarizes our current understanding of the epidemiology, genetics, imaging and treatment of these complex malignancies. Each imaging modality is reviewed, with an emphasis on MDCT, MRI and EUS; the key aspects of image interpretation are covered. Separate chapters focus on diagnosis and staging of ductal adenocarcinoma, cystic pancreatic neoplasms and neuroendocrine tumors; rare neoplasms and benign pancreatic disorders that mimic pancreatic cancer are also considered. All treatment options are discussed in detail, including surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy, and the multidisciplinary approach to patients with more advanced disease is fully reviewed. This volume is a state-of-the-art review of current practice and knowledge of pancreatic cancer.
