How do you look after the liver as well as the tumour? Is one scoring system in patient assessment more useful than another? Is microbubble ultrasound an advance in surveillance screening? Clinical Dilemmas in Primary Liver Cancer considers these and other questions in a highly practical, user-friendly format. Edited by Roger Williams and Simon Taylor-Robinson, two of the UK's top hepatologists and leading figures on liver cancer, this concise guide provides evidence-basedexpert guidance on subjects ranging from epidemiological risk factors and screening and surveillance strategies to diagnosis and treatment. Contributing authors, experts in particular areas in liver cancer treatment, know your daily clinical challenges because they share them. The six major sections of the book cover: · Learning from a worldwide perspective · Influence of tumour characteristics · Complexities of patient assessment and scoring systems · Choice of radiological diagnostic technique · Can treatment be tailored to the patient? · What does the future hold?
