About The Author

Kauczor, Hans-Ulrich

Depending on their mechanism of action, the cytotoxic and targeted drugs and radiotherapy employed in oncologic treatment may cause complications and toxicities in many organ systems, with variable radiologic presentations. This comprehensive and excellently illustrated book covers the basics of therapy-induced complications and toxicities in oncologic patients, identifies their consequences for all the major organs, and describes the imaging of these impacts by means of the various radiologic modalities. By familiarizing radiologists with the most frequent and prominent toxicities that are recognizable on radiologic imaging following tumor therapy, it will facilitate identification of their early manifestations and permit differential diagnosis based on relevant findings.

“This is a true addition of the oncology and radiology libraries, addressing the issue of how to image different organs for patients under going chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment. … In summary, this is a very valuable addition that focuses on an important topic in the field of raio oncology.” (Professor Hany Eldeeb, RAD Magazine, November, 2016)
