9780896034297: Thyroid Cancer: A Comprehensive Guide to Clinical Management

Leonard Wartofsky, MD, past president of the American Thyroid Association, and a panel of world-class clinicians critically review all aspects of thyroid cancer from pathogenesis to prognosis, including management and treatment. Organized for rapid access by busy physicians, the book covers both differentiated tumors (papillary carcinoma and follicular carcinoma) and undifferentiated cancers (anaplastic carcinoma, lymphoma, and medullary carcinoma), as well as miscellaneous and unusual cancers of the thyroid. For each tumor type the authors succinctly discuss the key aspects of their clinical presentation, cytology, diagnosis, nuclear isotope scanning evaluation, imaging by MRI or CT, monitoring, surgery, pathology, post-operative care, and prognosis. Authoritative and evidenced-based, Thyroid Cancer: A Comprehensive Guide to Clinical Management provides in one place everything that physicians treating thyroid cancer patients need to know.

From the Back Cover:

Thoroughly revised and extensively expanded, this encyclopedic, highly acclaimed title addresses all aspects of the etiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, initial treatment and long-term management of all varieties of thyroid cancer. Expertly edited by Drs. Leonard Wartofsky and Douglas Van Nostrand, this gold standard reference is divided into 11 Parts: General Considerations on Thyroid Cancer; General Considerations on Nuclear Medicine; the Thyroid Nodule; Well-Differentiated Thyroid Cancer; Variants of Thyroid Cancer, Undifferentiated Tumors: Medullary Thyroid Carcinoma; Undifferentiated Tumors: Thyroid Lymphoma; Undifferentiated Tumors: Anaplastic Thyroid Cancer; New Frontiers and Future Directions; and Additional Resources. With exceptional breadth and depth, the book includes chapters dedicated to isotopes, isotope uptake and scanning procedures such as SPECT/CT, radioiodine ablation (with or without recombinant human TSH), stunning, dosimetry (with or without recombinant human TSH), Octreotide and FDG-PET scanning and other alternative imaging modalities. There is a valuable reference atlas of scan images and illustrations, and a scholarly summary of the side effects of radioiodine and how to avoid or minimize adverse effects of treatment. In addition to an updated section on ultrasonography of the thyroid gland, new sections have been added, including ones on ultrasonography of cervical lymph nodes and imaging for thyroid cancer employing computerized tomography (CT), positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). An indispensable reference source with chapters written by the field’s leading authoritative experts, Thyroid Cancer: A Comprehensive Guide to Clinical Management, Third Edition, will be of great interest to not only pathologists, endocrine surgeons, endocrinologists, nuclear medicine physicians, and oncologists but all clinicians with an interest in thyroid cancer.
