Description

This book covers the huge advances made in clinical diagnosis enabling earlier detection, while addressing the recent progress made in treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) to enable successful therapy.

It draws on the expertise of an internationally recognized author famed for his understanding, knowledge and efforts in defining terms and diagnosis in this area.

The text reviews the full range of pathological information of HCC based on the study of surgical cases and biopsy materials, along with images, to help compare findings that may be encountered by pathologists. It also makes special reference to developments in early stage HCC detection and premalignant lesions which can increase effective treatment.
