Comprehensive Tumour Terminology Handbook (0471184853) cover image
Comprehensive Tumour Terminology Handbook is the first tumour nomenclature monograph that provides a comprehensive directory of all synonyms, eponyms, and pathologic descriptions used to classify tumours. Necessitated by the need to standardize the ever-increasing literature of tumour terminology, the text suggests preferred terminology and lists all synonyms currently in use. An extension of studies undertaken by the International Union Against Cancer (UICC), this handbook reflects their long-term work in the detection and diagnosis of malignant tumours in humans.
The book is divided into chapters devoted to specific organs or organ systems. Using a three-column format to arrange information, the first column lists all the names that have been used for the various tumours that develop within a particular organ; the second column catalogues all known synonyms; and the third column provides a brief description of each tumour. Preferred terms are shown in bold. The text acts as a key to conflicting and redundant nomenclature,and designates acceptable and standard terminology.
Comprehensive Tumour Terminology Handbook is a concise index of tumour nomenclature for clinicians, pathologists, and healthcare professionals around the world responsible for the care of patients with cancer.
