Liver and biliary cancers are common cancers worldwide. The modern approach to these malignancies is a multidisciplinary collaboration. Hepatobiliary Cancer addresses the field with talented practitioners from around the world in surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, medical oncology, and integrative medicine.

An international group of experts have contributed chapters to this volume. From world-class cancer centers, these contributors provide the current state of the art for diagnosis and treatment of hepatobiliary cancers. The institutions represented include Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, The Johns Hopkins Hospital, the Mayo Clinic, Brown University, Columbia University, Northwestern University, UC San Francisco, Sanjay Gandhi Institute, Saint Barnabas Medical Center, the University of Heidelberg, the University of Wisconsin, the University of Hong Kong, Fudan University/Shanghai Cancer Center, Florida International University, the Institute of Cancer Studies, University Hospital, Birmingham (UK), and the University of Tokyo.

The book looks at these cancers by type – biliary and liver tumors – and in terms of diagnostic techniques and therapies: surgical, ablative, systemic and regional chemotherapies, biologic, and complementary.

This volume is essential reading for anyone expert in, or engaged in learning about, treating hepatobiliary cancers. Heavily illustrated with photomicrographs, photographs, drawings, and tables to support and illuminate the text, it is a concise, yet comprehensive guide to hepatobiliary cancer diagnosis and treatment.
