Inhaltsangabe: This unique book is an accessible overview of statistical data on cancer, which, despite their importance and great interest, have hitherto been dispersed between many diverse sources. Now, for the first time within a single volume, cancer specialists without statistical training may obtain data ranging from incidence, through risk and prevalence, to mortality and survival, separate chapters being devoted to each of these topics.
Of interest to oncologists, medical statisticians, epidemiologists, cancer researchers, community medicine specialists, health care administrators, and computer software specialists. Also general practitioners, junior medical officers, radiographers, nurses, hospital physicists and technologists involved in cancer care. Accessible in parts to a wide readership.
