This book is a comprehensive guide to all major aspects of neuro-oncology care. The first section deals with the anatomy and physiology of the brain. It discusses and describes neurological assessment and examines tumours, their make-up and how they are imaged. The second part of the book looks at treatment processes, including pre- and postoperative care, surgical approaches, and the role of radiotherapy and chemotherapy. It examines the medications most frequently used to control symptoms, their uses and side-effects.
