This book provides a comprehensive, state-of-the-art overview of imaging modalities used in the diagnosis, staging, and management of pancreatic cancer. In addition to profiling the most commonly-used imaging modalities for pancreatic cancer, the text reviews recent advances in endoscopic ultrasound, staging characteristics utilized in determining appropriate treatment options, and reviews the role of imaging in pancreatic cancer screening in specialized patient populations. The book also spotlights the use of radiation therapy for pancreatic cancer in patients who cannot have surgery, as well as when fiducial marker placement should be considered in targeting a malignancy.
