Bone and Soft Tissue Tumors: A Multidisciplinary Review with Case Presentations

by Therese J. Bocklage, Robert H. Quinn, Berndt P. Schmit, Claire F. Verschraegen

Patients with a bone or soft tissue tumor require a highly efficient and multidisciplinary team of physicians for optimal care. These tumors are rarely encountered in routine practice and often require diagnosis & treatment at specialized centers. Hence, this book’s main objective is to provide a practical guide to the diagnosis of bone & soft tissue tumors and the management of patients with these conditions. It also consists of case presentations in each chapter and each real case presented in this text outlines the patient’s history, physical examination, imaging studies, laboratory findings, disease progress, diagnostic features & outcomes. The treatment of a complex patient also relies on contributions from nurses, social workers, nutritionists, counselors, psychiatrists, laboratorians, pathologists’ assistants, physical & occupational therapists and others, and this book also acknowledges the dedicated attention of these medical professionals.
