The current age of clinical medicine is witnessing biotechnological innovation at an unprecedented pace. As a result, the recently popularized clinical practice guidelines (CPG), as a tool to assist clinical decision-making, have been struggling to keep up. Thyroid Cancer: From Emergent Biotechnology to Clinical Practice Guidelines rides the wave of medical innovation, analyzing current and future CPG, and providing an up-to-date and comprehensive treatise on thyroid cancer, its diagnosis, and treatment.

A synthesis of ideas by prominent world experts in the field of thyroid cancer research and clinical practice, Thyroid Cancer covers:

  • Technologically-advanced diagnostic procedures and therapeutic interventions

  • Diagnostic techniques employed in the detection and follow-up of thyroid cancer including ultrasound, needle aspiration techniques, CT, PET, PET-CT, and MRI

  • Basic principles of systems biology, molecular and translational medicine, CPG development, and risk stratification for thyroid cancer

  • How CPG contain knowledge gaps and produce uncertainty

  • Advances in the field, including new surgical techniques, molecular targeted therapies, external beam radiation therapy, and chemotherapy

A comprehensive, scientific description of current and future diagnostic and therapeutic modalities for the management of thyroid cancer, this treatise is an indispensible reference for both the specialist and referring physician.
