Cancer Drug Design and Discovery is a two-volume reference book which will present imaging technology currently used in clinics or at experimental stages for diagnosis and/or early detection of various cancers, including anticancer vaccines, surgical techniques, chemotherapy, radiation, and gene therapies. Cancers discussed will include breast, lung, liver, prostate, cervical, brain, gastrointestinal, ovarian, gallbladder, esophageal, head and neck, bronchial, bone, thyroid, pancreatic, lymphoma, melanoma, and multiple myeloma malignancies. Approximately 100 research scientists and clinicians from more than 20 countries will contribute chapters. This book concentrates on the application of imaging technology to the diagnosis and prognosis of lung and breast carcinomas, the two major world-wide malignancies; addresses relationship between radiation dose and image quality; and, discusses the role of molecular imaging in identifying changes for the emergence and progression of cancer at the cellular and/or molecular levels.“
