Review:

From the reviews:

"Gliomas are the most common primary intracranial tumors and their biological and molecular behaviors have been a focus for many decades. ... The purpose of this book is to report the most recent advances in the diagnosis and management of gliomas. Neurologists, neuroradiologists, radiation oncologists, and oncologists are the main audiences. ... This is an excellent book on the diagnosis and management of intracranial gliomas. ... It should, therefore, be in neuroscience libraries and large academic institutional libraries." (Celso Agner, Doody’s Review Service, August, 2009)
