While there are a plethora of practical texts relating to general gynecology, there are few specific to gynecological oncology. Taking a "cookbook" approach with clearly written and pictorial instructions, Atlas of Gynecologic Oncology: Investigation and Surgery describes and illustrates important procedures in the repertoire of a gynecological oncologist. International authorities contribute their expertise on a range of topics, including tumor markers, pain management, cross-sectional imaging, treatment of vascular defects, and more.

The book pulls together investigations performed by the authors and their colleagues from other disciplines. It covers computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and stenting, which were previously accessible only in radiological or urological texts. The chapter on genetic and other screening methods for ovarian cancer provides insight into a rapidly expanding area within the subspecialty.

The text is deliberately short and the illustrations, all the work of one team of artists to maintain clarity and continuity of presentation, put the techniques at your fingertips. The radiological and endoscopic sections include photographs with line drawings to aid clarity. Clearly and concisely written, the book is a practical and easy-to-use guide to investigation and surgery.
