Oxford Case Histories in Lung Cancer contains a comprehensive selection of 40 clinical cases that reflects the multidisciplinary approach to the management of lung cancer. Written by authors specialising in respiratory medicine, oncology, pathology, radiology, palliative care, and thoracic surgery, the cases cover both incidents commonly faced in clinical practice, or those that pose particular challenges.

Each case consists of a brief case history, followed by questions and answers to discuss common questions arising during the management of lung cancer. The answers are based on the best available evidence from the latest research, and should help optimise the diagnostic pathways available to patients.

The text is also extensively illustrated with over 75 CT and MRI scans and X-ray images to help the reader develop interpretative skills. The book may also be used in multidisciplinary sessions to help make arguments for patient care decisions based on real-life scenarios. This is an essential new resource for both trainees and recently appointed consultants who will work with patients who have lung cancer, specialist nurses, and lung cancer MDT co-ordinators.
