Imaging in the recognition of metastatic disease is covered in detail with chapters detailing the range of appareances of deposits in each organ. Much attention is given to the diffrential disgnosis of focal pathology in each organ in patients with underlying malignancy und useful protocols for the performance of the study provided. While including a section on new horizons in cancer imaging, such as the imaging of angiogenesis, Mr lymphography and the rapidly evloving fielf of molecular imaging, the editors have not neglected the more traditional general principles of cancer behaviour and imaging. Hence, an outline of cancer surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy is provided by experts. As therapy becomes more successful, increasingly important issues for the radiologist such as the assessment of response, the effect of treatment on normal tissues, the complications of treatment, and the risk of second malignancies are presented. There are several outstanding features to this book: the colour diagrams of the staging systems are exquisite and allow the often complex systems to be understood easily ans memorized; the organization of the book into different, clearly defined sections allow it to be used not only as a reliable reference text, but also to be read easily; key points and summaries in point form are provided trouhtout for quick revision.
