Dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI is now established as the methodology of choice for the assessment of tumor microcirculation in vivo. The method assists clinical practitioners in the management of patients with solid tumors and is finding prominence in the assessment of tumor treatments, including anti-angiogenics, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy. Here, leading authorities discuss the principles of the methods, their practical implementation, and their application to specific tumor types. The text is an invaluable single-volume reference that covers all the latest developments in contrast-enhanced oncological MRI.

Overall, this is an excellent book and worth the price for any MRI department involved with or considering this technique of cancer imaging.
This is the first major reference book that collates information from all our major workers in this field and the authors are to be congratulated on eliciting chapters from no fewer than 33 authors worldwide - no small achievement!
Again, Springer is to be congratulated on the quality of the reproductions in these sections.
The chapters on the emerging role of this technique in oncology trials are of particular value and provide a useful structured approach to the radiologist not familiar with trial design and conduct.
