"For the radiologist with an interest in tumour work and impact of skeletal metastases, this is a well written and interesting book. ... there are multiple informative images related to surgical management later on. The book is not expensive and for those interested in a more holistic understanding of the patient with metastatic bone disease, it highlights the newer treatments available that go hand in hand with the extended longevity for many cancer patients compared to 20 years ago."
