They are usually diagnosed in the advanced stages and carry high morbidity and mortality." "This volume summarises the latest developments in imaging of primary hepatic carcinomas, emphasising the multidisciplinary approach to the care of patients. In addition to extensive chapters on the radiological issues surrounding diagnosis and staging of these malignancies, individual chapters on epidemiology, pathology, and surgical and non-surgical treatment options are also included. All treatment options are considered for both hepatocellular carcinoma and cholangiocarcinoma, including newer techniques with intra-arterial therapy such as selective internal radiation with radioactive isotopes."--Jacket." ;
