Bone and soft tissue tumors: a multidisciplinary review with case presentations
Therese J Bocklage
This is a comprehensive, lavishly illustrated review of orthopaedic oncology that is multi-disciplinary, integrative and highly practical. Introductory chapters cover overviews of the basics of bone and soft tissue tumors âô the pathology, radiology and surgical and oncologic management. These are followed by chapters covering all tumor types organized according to the 2013 WHO classification of bone and soft tissue tumors. Each class of tumor is dealt with in detail, with case presentations illustrating how they would be diagnosed and managed in a clinical setting. The range of variation of each tumor type is indicated with appropriate radiological and pathological images. Detailed tables and flow charts provide quick access to vital diagnosis and staging information for each tumor type. This book provides an expert, case-based approach to orthopaedic oncology and patient care for trainees and practising orthopaedic surgeons, pathologists and radiologists. - A practical and comprehensive review of orthopaedic oncology - Covers all tumor types and their range of variation - Organized according to the 2013 WHO classification of bone and soft tissue tumors - Tables and flow charts provide diagnosis and staging information for each tumor type
Artificial Intelligence in Cancer: Diagnostic to Tailored Treatment
by Smaranda Belciug (Author)
Artificial Intelligence in Cancer: Diagnostic to Tailored Treatment provides theoretical concepts and practical techniques of AI and its applications in cancer management, building a roadmap on how to use AI in cancer at different stages of healthcare. It discusses topics such as the impactful role of AI during diagnosis and how it can support clinicians to make better decisions, AI tools to help pathologists identify exact types of cancer, how AI supports tumor profiling and can assist surgeons, and the gains in precision for oncologists using AI tools. Additionally, it provides information on AI used for survival and remission/recurrence analysis. The book is a valuable source for bioinformaticians, cancer researchers, oncologists, clinicians and members of the biomedical field who want to understand the promising field of AI applications in cancer management.
- Discusses over 20 real cancer examples, bringing state-of-the-art cancer cases in which AI was used to help the medical personnel
- Presents over 100 diagrams, making it easier to comprehend AI’s results on a specific problem through visual resources
- Explains AI algorithms in a friendly manner, thus helping the reader implement or use them in a specific cancer case

by Badrinath Konety
Together with Consulting Editor Dr. Samir Taneja, Dr. Badrinath Konety has put together a comprehensive issue that addresses Salvage therapies for Non-Muscle Invasive Bladder Cancer. Expert authors have contributed clinical review articles on the following topics: BCG salvage therapy: Definition and context; Who will respond to BCG? Predictors and nomograms; Identification of candidates for salvage therapy: Definition of BCG "Failure; Predictors of response to Intravesical therapy; Precision medicine for NMIBC; Salvage therapy using BCG derivatives or single agent chemotherapy; Intravesical heated Mitomycin: Biology and clinical utility; Mitomycin derivatives in the salvage setting; Combination intravesical therapy; Intravesical gene therapy; Immunoncology as salvage therapy; Role of IDO inhibitors in salvage therapy; and Novel agents for intravesical therapy. Readers will come away with the clinical information they need to improve outcomes in patients with bladder cancer.
