Modern Thoracic Oncology is the first comprehensive publication on thoracic oncology. Contributors who are world experts have authored concise, relevant and current topics in this field. Whether one desires information regarding lung cancer screening, esophageal cancer staging, mutational analysis, targeted therapies, stereotactic ablative radiation with real-time imaging, minimally-invasive and robotic surgery, combination immunotherapy, microwave/cryoablation, or methods of early cancer detection, this set of three volumes, encompass all of the latest information in the field of thoracic oncology. A rapidly advancing knowledgebase has led to dramatic improvements in individualized or 'personalized' care of patients. However, the myriad of rapid changes has also made it more challenging for thoracic oncologists to comprehend and incorporate these improvements into their daily practice. This staggering and rapid change requires a comprehensive thoracic oncology publication designed to keep clinicians, including pulmonologists, pathologists, radiologists, surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists and gastroenterologists, well-informed and up-to-date. To meet such needs and to ensure that all areas of thoracic oncology are covered indepth, Modern Thoracic Oncology is published in three volumes.Volume 1 entitled General Principles of Thoracic Oncology provides a comprehensive introduction to thoracic oncology. Principles of thoracic oncology care are discussed in detail and include topics such as thoracic anatomy and embryology, medical evaluation of cancer patients, appropriate imaging modalities with a specific discussion of lung cancer screening, and the basic principles underlying the various treatment modalities. Volume 2 entitled Trachea, Lung, and Pleura addresses lung cancer, one of the most common and deadliest malignancies in the world, as well as two relatively rare respiratory tumors. Volume 3 entitled Esophagus, Mediastinum, Chest Wall and Diaphragm covers esophageal cancer, one of the most rapidly growing malignancies in the world and which still poses significant challenges to thoracic oncologists. Esophageal squamous cell tumors are discussed by experts from Asia where this disease is endemic and adenocarcinoma of the esophagus is detailed by oncologists in the West who face this challenge on a daily basis.
