Head and Neck Cancer is a contributor text that was generated by the International Conference on Head and Neck Cancer held in Baltimore in July 1984. Distinguished head and neck oncologists document new development in the field of head and neck oncology.
New perspectives in cancer biology, epidemiology, pathology, surgery, radiation therapy, and multimodality treatment are addressed by experts in the field. Subsequent sections include staging, diagnostic imaging, surgical management, radiation therapy, hyperthermia, chemotherapy, and reconstruction-rehabilitation. Other sections include discussion of new modalities, immunology and immunotherapy, and inventive approaches to prevention. The index is well developed, allowing easy reference.
These data are not available elsewhere in a single source. The expertise from a vast spectrum of scientific disciplines is amalgamated into a single volume. As such, the text is valuable reading for the head and neck oncologist. The book serves both as a reference text and as a position statement
