Other textbooks of oncology are either too superficial in their coverage of specific areas, or too inaccessible in terms of getting rapid answers to specific clinical questions during the busy working day. This summary of the key terms in oncology, arranged in an easily accessible A-Z format, provides a comprehensive coverage, defining key terms and concepts in a concise style. Extensive use is made throughout of cross-referencing and the book is supplied with a free searchable CD-ROM of all the terms in the book which will aid rapid access to topics of interest. Wherever possible, clinically relevant examples and real-world data are included to help the trainee or busy clinician to quickly place their findings in a wider clinical context. The book will be of use to any healthcare professional with a need to understand oncology when seeing patients, reading medical reports or interpreting scientific papers. Just some of the areas covered include Physics, Radiation Biology, Clinical Pharmacology, Statistics and Clinical Epidemiology, Tumour Biology, Molecular Biology
