Colorectal cancer is the second most common cause of cancer death in the developed world. The last five years have seen dramatic improvements in the multidisciplinary management of this malignancy. In this volume, experts at the forefront of these advances contribute their knowledge and experience on the major advances that have occurred in diagnosis, staging, preoperative and adjuvant therapy, surgery and follow-up assessment of patients with this disease.

About the series Each volume in Contemporary Issues in Cancer Imaging - A Multidisciplinary Approach is edited by an expert guest editor, with contributions from all members of the multidisciplinary team, bringing together expertise from many specialties to promote the understanding and application of modern imaging in overall patient management.
