Where appropriate, chapters include an evidence appraisal section which critically assesses the level of the evidence available for different treatment options.
Reflecting the latest in clinical research and showcasing techniques pioneered by the contributors, the book includes chapters dedicated to advances in:
molecular biology and treatment rationale in thyroid cancer
surgical technique including minimally invasive modalities
Designed to be user-friendly, the book contains key points, case studies, color photographs and diagrams throughout. Multiple choice questions included at the end of each chapter enable self assessment.
The book will be relevant to the medical undergraduate, postgraduate and clinical nurse specialist.
