A new perspective on lung cancer
Reviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Jul 28 2020
Perspectives in Lung Cancer is the first volume of Bentham Books' new series, Frontiers in Lung Cancer. The new book, edited by Dr. Keyvan Moghissi et al., is a comprehensive compilation of basic and advanced topics on lung cancer pathology and treatment in a single volume.
Chapters introduce the reader to chest and lung anatomy followed by the biology of lung cancer. Subsequent chapters delve into diagnostic methods for lung cancer while progressing into treatment options.
Each chapter features contributions from experts in lung cancer treatment, thoracic surgery pulmonary disorders. The book culminates into an explanation of the concept of the Lung Cancer Centre, which is a representation of the editors' vision for organizing a lung cancer treatment unit.
The Editors' main goal is to give readers an updated view of current best practices in lung cancer clinics.
A book should have regard for the best care and treatment outcome of patients; I believe there is a vacuum within the currently available textbooks on lung cancer."
