Book Description :

This updated edition provides clinicians from various backgrounds and levels of training the information needed to optimally diagnose and manage neurologic complications of the nervous system. Organized into seven sections, this comprehensive volume begins with an overview of diagnostic studies for neurologic complications involving the nervous system. That is followed by sections on metastatic and non-metastatic complications of cancer involving the nervous system, and the interpretation, diagnosis, and management of common neuro-oncologic symptoms. The next section reviews the neurologic complications of cancer therapy, including corticosteroids, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, targeted molecular therapies, immunotherapies, hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, and infections involving the nervous system. The final section focuses on the most important neurologic complications in cancers arising from specific organs. In addition to capturing the latest advancements in the rapidly evolving fields of oncology and cancer neurology, the goal of this resource is to lead clinicians toward prompt diagnosis and intervention in order to improve patient quality of life. "This textbook is a valuable resource for medical oncologists and radiation oncologists, as well as neurologists and neuro-oncologists dealing with these patients. ... Overall, the chapters are well organized, clearly written, fairly balanced, and reasonably up to date. ... I would recommend it as a learning tool to physicians in training (medical students, residents, and fellows) and for more experienced physicians as both a review/ update and a way to gain more in-depth knowledge and insight into the neurologic problems of cancer patients." (John C. Flickinger, International Journal of Radiation Oncology Biology Physics, Vol. 73 (2), 2009) "The general organization of the book is logical and facilitates its practical and everyday use. ... Overall this textbook is very comprehensive and encompasses main neuro-oncological challenges. ... Schiff, Kesari and Wen have edited a very elegant and highly practical textbook, written by recognized authorities in their respective fields, which will be used by a wide range of medical and surgical specialists who are confronted on a daily basis with neurological manifestations of cancer in their practice." (I. Radovanovic and G. Zadeh, British Journal of Cancer, Vol. 100 (6), 2009)

Book Description :

Cancer imposes daunting effects on the nervous system Brain cancer is one of the most devastating diagnoses a physician can deliver. Cancer of the nervous system can take many different forms. Treatment is specific to the type of malignancy, its location in the nervous system and, increasingly, its molecular characteristics. The challenges manifest further when management choices need to be made, and multidisciplinary approaches are required. Additional complexities arise in children, where the developing neurological system requires more sensitive treatment. Neuro-oncology unmasks the complexities to provide a straightforward guide to cancers of the nervous system. Following a general approach to diagnosis and treatment, the clinical aspects of specific cancer types in adults and children are explained in practical terms. A final section considers the effect of system cancer on the nervous system and the side effects of treatment. Clinical in approach, practical in execution, Neuro-oncology will help you diagnose and manage your patients more effectively. Neurology in Practice Series Editors Robert A Gross , MD, PhD, Department of Neurology, University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, New York, USA Jonathan W Mink, MD, PhD, Department of Neurology, University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, New York, USA The Neurology in Practice series provides clinical 'in the office' or 'at the bedside' guides to effective patient care for neurologists. The tone is practical, not academic, with authors offering guidance on what might be done and what should be avoided. The books are informed by evidence-based practice and feature: Algorithms and guidelines where they are appropriate 'Tips and Tricks' boxes – hints on improving outcomes 'Caution' warning boxes – hints on avoiding complications 'Science Revisited' – quick reminder of the basic science principles Summaries of key evidence and suggestions for further reading

Book Description :

This book provides a comprehensive, practical, and timely guide to neurorehabilitation for patients affected by tumors of the central nervous system. These patients encounter various physical and psychosocial impairments, due to sensory-motor, psychological and cognitive limitations, as well as depression, anxiety and fatigue. These common tumor and treatment consequences reduce quality of life and produce long-term limitation in functioning and disability that may benefit from rehabilitative interventions. In the early stages of the disease, rehabilitation aims at restoring functioning after tumor treatment, while in the advanced stages, rehabilitation becomes an integral part of palliative care, which aims to increase patients’ independence, to prevent complications and to improve quality of life. Based on an interdisciplinary approach, the book is structured in two main parts. The first is devoted to the basics of cancer and to the main clinical features of the tumors of the nervous system, as well as to the essentials of therapeutic approaches. The second part is dedicated to rehabilitation issues, providing the tools for health personnel to take in charge persons affected by neuro-oncological disease. This unique volume is a valuable resource for all health professionals (physicians, psychologists, trainees nurses specialized in neuro-oncology, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, speech therapists) involved in the interdisciplinary management of individuals affected by tumors of the central nervous system.

Book Description :

Remarkable progress in neuro-oncology due to increased utilization of advanced imaging in clinical practice continues to accelerate in recent years. Refinements in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) technology, and the addition of newer anatomical, functional, and metabolic imaging methods, such as MRS, fMRI, diffusion MRI, and DTI MRI have allowed brain tumor patients to be diagnosed much earlier and to be followed more carefully during treatment. With treatment approaches and the field of neuro-oncology neuroimaging changing rapidly, this second edition of the Handbook of Neuro-Oncology Neuroimaging is so relevant to those in the field, providing a single-source, comprehensive, reference handbook of the most up-to-date clinical and technical information regarding the application of neuro-Imaging techniques to brain tumor and neuro-oncology patients. This new volume will have updates on all of the material from the first edition, and in addition will feature several new important chapters covering diverse topics such as advanced imaging techniques in radiation therapy, therapeutic treatment fields, response assessment in clinical trials, surgical planning of neoplastic disease of the spine, and more. It will also serve as a resource of background information to neuroimaging researchers and basic scientists with an interest in brain tumors and neuro-oncology. Provides a background to translational research and the use of brain imaging for brain tumors Contains critical discussions on the potential and limitations of neuroimaging as a translational tool for the diagnosis and treatment of brain tumor and neuro-oncology patients Presents an up-to-date reference on advanced imaging technologies, including computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and positron emission tomography (PET), as well as the recent refinements in these techniques
