The Tumor: A Non-Legal Thriller


By (author): John Grisham

John Grisham says THE TUMOR is the most important book he has ever written. In this short book, he provides readers with a fictional account of how a real, new medical technology could revolutionize the future of medicine by curing with sound.

THE TUMOR follows the present day experience of the fictional patient Paul, an otherwise healthy 35-year-old father who is diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. Grisham takes readers through a detailed account of Paul’s treatment and his family’s experience that doesn’t end as we would hope. Grisham then explores an alternate future, where Paul is diagnosed with the same brain tumor at the same age, but in the year 2025, when a treatment called focused ultrasound is able to extend his life expectancy.

Focused ultrasound has the potential to treat not just brain tumors, but many other disorders, including Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, hypertension, and prostate, breast and pancreatic cancer.

For more information or to order a free hard copy of the book, you can visit The Focused Ultrasound Foundation’s website. Here you will find a video of Grisham on the TEDx stage with the Foundation’s chairman and a Parkinson’s patient who brings the audience to its feet sharing her incredible story of a focused ultrasound “miracle.”

Readers will get a taste of the narrative they expect from Grisham, but this short book will also educate and inspire people to be hopeful about the future of medical innovation.

Principles & Practice of Neuro-oncology: A Multidisciplinary Approach


Features: Used Book in Good Condition

Neuro-oncologic (brain and spine) cancers account for 19,000 new cases and 13,000 deaths per year. The early and proper diagnosis of these virulent cancers is critical to patient outcomes and diagnosis and treatment strategies are continually evolving. The multidisciplinary team that manages these patients involves medical radiation oncology, neurosurgery, molecular biology, neuroimaging, nurses and therapists. Principles and Practices of Neuro-Oncology establishes a new gold standard in care through a comprehensive, multidisciplinary text covering all aspects of neuro-oncology. Six major sections cover all topics related to epidemiology and etiology, clinical features and supportive care, imaging, neuroanatomy and neurosurgery, medical oncology and targeted therapies, and radiation oncology for adult and pediatric cancers.

Expert contributors from multiple disciplines provide detailed and in-depth discussions of the the entire field of neuro-oncology including histopathologic harmonization, quality of life amd therapeutic changes in terms of combined modality treatments, the advent of new drugs, especially targeted agents, and the tantalizing early promise of personalized therapeutic approaches.

With contributions from over 180 authors, numerous diagrams, illustrations and tables, and a 48-page color plate section, Principles and Practice of Neuro-Oncology reflects the breadth and depth of this multi-faceted specialty.

Pediatric Hematology and Oncology: Scientific Principles and Clinical Practice


This new textbook has an international authorship and is a practical, up-to-date resource for clinicians responsible for the care of children with oncologic and malignant hematologic disease. It is specifically designed for practicing oncologists and hematologists, pediatricians with an interest in childhood cancer and trainees seeking a systematic approach to these disorders.   This new textbook has an emphasis on the visual presentation and ease of reading of contemporary and comprehensive information for children’s cancers and contains detailed tables, fact boxes and illustrations.

The textbook begins with an introduction to the general principles of the scientific foundation and treatment of childhood cancers and hematological malignancies. Separate sections are then devoted to descriptions of central nervous system tumors, hematological malignancies and solid tumors of childhood which encompass epidemiology, cellular and molecular biology, cancer genetics, immunology, pharmacology and the findings of clinical trials. For each area of science covered, key original references and reviews are highlighted to direct further reading.

Diagnostic, biological, and therapeutic issues are integrated into each tumor-specific chapter, with evidence supporting the current rationales for risk stratification and the development of novel therapies. A final section then explores supportive care, palliative care, late effects considerations and psychosocial issues as relate to children’s cancer.

PET/CT in Cancer of Unknown Primary (Clinicians’ Guides to Radionuclide Hybrid Imaging)


This pocket book offers a rapid and concise overview of the utility of PET/CT in the management of patients with cancer of unknown primary (CUP). Readers will gain an appreciation of the unique information provided by PET/CT on the molecular and metabolic changes associated with CUP, which can occur in the absence of corresponding anatomical alterations. Characteristic imaging appearances are documented with the aid of a series of teaching cases that serve to illustrate the potential improvements in patient management that may be achieved through early use of PET/CT in the diagnostic pathway. In addition, the relation of the clinical and pathological background to imaging is explained. The book is published within the Springer series Clinicians’ Guides to Radionuclide Hybrid Imaging (compiled under the auspices of the British Nuclear Medicine Society) and will be an excellent asset for all clinicians, nuclear medicine physicians, radiologists, radiographers, and nurses who routinely work in multidisciplinary teams involved in the management of these patients.

Interventional Techniques in Uro-oncology


Minimally invasive surgical techniques are moving into the mainstream of urological practice. Even less invasive techniques, some of which can involve no use of the knife whatsoever, are rapidly being developed and implemented for treating urological cancer. Interventional Techniques in Uro-oncology is the first text to cover these techniques in total and provides a comprehensive review of the state-of-the-art minimally invasive interventions.

This well-illustrated reference provides the basic science behind each technique before explaining when and how best to perform them. It examines their use in different clinical settings, the advantages and disadvantages of each technique in the management of specific tumor types, and their suitability for different patients. Future techniques are discussed including the potential of nanotechnology in the delivery of urologic healthcare. Each chapter is easy to navigate with key points and references.

Interventional Techniques in Uro-oncology is an essential reference for training and practicing oncologists, urologists and radiologists as well as the general physician with a keen interest in cancer care. Its approachable style will also inform non-experts on what is available and whether a particular intervention is suitable for their patient in the clinic.
