Russell & Rubinstein's Pathology of Tumors of the Nervous System 7ed
By

Rating
New or Used: $611.38
This is the leading international professional reference text that also serves as a bench book, describing all aspects of the pathology of brain tumours- genetics, molecular biology, epidemiology, morphology, immunohistochemistry, diagnostic criteria and prognosis. Beautifully illustrated in
colour throughout and comprehensively referenced, Russell & Rubinstein is regarded as the ultimate source for key information.

For this seventh edition the book returns to a single, clearly organized volume, and basic sciences are once again fully integrated within sectinos devoted to individual tumour entities. Entirely revised and updated throughout by a wide range of internationally revered authorities, the content
reflects the latest tumour classificiation and grading while neuroradiologic correlation via state of the art neuroimaging techniques continues to be emphasised in all diagnostic entities. The offering is completed by a companion CD-ROM, providing quick and easy access to all the images from the
book, indexed and retrievable by figure number, chapter title, and keyword searches.

Reviews

"This multi-author text provides needed updates on important areas of clinical neuropathology. The list of contributors represents a wide spectrum of experts within the field ... Some of the chapters are especially well-written, easy to understand, and especially enjoyable ... Overall, information is well presented and the layout of the chapters is easy to follow ... In my opinion, this edition of Russel and Rubinstein is worth its price. Its user-friendliness combined with a strong appeal and usefulness as an important reference makes this book not only necessary for neuropathologists but also for all other specialists in neuro-oncology. " -- Journal of Neuropathology and Experimental Neurology "This is the newest edition of the 'bible' of nervous system tumors, providingthe reader with up-to-date informations on classification, morphology, genetics and pathobiology of nervous system neoplasms and related disorders - a luxurious (expansive) 'must' for everyone working and interested in the broad field of tumors of the nervous system and related disorders." -- K.A. Jellinger, European Journal of Neurology "(The CD is) very easy to use and the pictures present are of good quality ... well written, beautifully illustrated and contains chapters which cover information not readily available in other competing textbooks. It is a textbook which should be available within all neuropathology departments." -- C. Smith, Histopathology "The illustrations are also fully accessible on and downloadable from the user-friendly companion CD-ROM ... (A) very useful update, currently unrivalled in terms of its overall depth and comprehensiveness as a reference text ... (I have) no hesitation in recommending it as an essential text for neuropathologists, in practice and in training, as well as a very valuable resource to all other disciplines involved in neuro-oncology." -- Daniel G. du Plessis, Neuropathology & Applied Neurbiology
