Soft Tissue Tumors Diagnostic Handbook
from C.H.I.P.S.

Soft Tissue Tumors
A Multidiscipinary, Decisional Diagnostic Approach
edited by Jerzy Klijanienko

Using state-of-the-art laboratory and clinical techniques, Soft Tissue Tumors carefully considers and combines clinical pathologic, radiologic, and medical and surgical oncologic data.

Designed to optimize the STT patient's specific disease diagnosis and management, this balanced guide provides carefully developed insights into the decision-making process and diagnostic and treatment support for a comprehensive array of STTs.

Coverage includes:

  • Fully developed cytological and cytopathologic differential diagnosis, with careful consideration of both "large-sample" and "small-sample" diagnostic techniques
  • Practical tumor classification and staging, carefuly calibrated and harmonized with therapeutic and natural history implications
  • Ancillary techniques that involve immunocytochemistry, immunohistochemistry, genetic techniques, grading of STTs, and future investigation
  • Principal aspects in fine needle aspirates and core needle biopsies
