Contemporary Issues in Cancer Imaging : Carcinoma of the Bladder Hardback
Edited by David (Dr) MacVicar
Bladder cancer is a common and dangerous malignancy which is associated with a variety of known and unknown environmental factors.
Clinical management and surgical techniques prioritise detection and treatment of early tumours, which form the majority of newly diagnosed cancers.
Imaging is central to establishing the presence of more advanced disease, for which a variety of treatment options exist, including radical curative surgery with or without bladder reconstruction, radiation therapy with curative or palliative intent, and systemic or local chemotherapy.
Imaging techniques continue to evolve and this volume explores the relevance of CT with multidetector array, MRI, and computer-based reconstructions such as 'virtual cystoscopy' to treatment choices in today's practice. A review of follow-up strategies and the imaging appearances of treated disease is presented, along with descriptions of modern surgical techniques, radiotherapy and chemotherapy regimens.
