Glioblastoma: State-of-the-Art Clinical Neuroimaging
March 22, 2019
From Nova: Neuroimaging plays a central role in the initial diagnosis and subsequent monitoring of multimodal therapies offered to patients with glioblastoma – the most malignant type of brain cancer. The authors present a comprehensive description of current state-of-the-art clinical neuroimaging for glioblastoma. They cover the basic concepts and most recent applications of clinical structural neuroimaging, as well as the latest innovations and up-and-coming techniques for functional imaging of glioblastoma patients.
Few comprehensive books are available in this challenging field of clinical medicine. The co-editors are experienced academic neuroradiologists with an active interest in clinical imaging and research of glioblastoma, all within a vibrant clinical environment at Stanford University where the latest innovations in glioblastoma imaging and treatment are being developed. In compiling this book, the co-editors have called upon many of the world’s best clinical and basic neuroscientists specializing in the management of patients with this malignancy, for their expert input on the latest imaging developments and applicable research into glioblastoma.
This book is intended for neuroradiologists, neuro-oncologists, neurosurgeons, radiation therapists, and other physicians and scientists engaged in the study and clinical management of patients with glioblastoma. It should also serve as a unique educational and research resource for students and more experienced practitioners alike within this rapidly evolving field.
