Skeletal Metastases

Metastatic disease of the skeleton can arise from direct extension, lymphatic or hematogenous dissemination, or intraspinal spread of tumor. The osseous response to the neoplasm consists of bone resorption, bone formation, or both. Such metastases predominate in the bones of the axial skeleton, although atypical patterns of distribution are encountered. A variety of diagnostic techniques, including scintigraphy, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and positron emission tomography, can be used in addition to routine radiography in the initial detection and subsequent monitoring of metastatic foci.

The candidate will learn the mechanics of putting together an electronic poster presentation in lecture type format.
This will be an official peer-reviewed publication.
The publication will be a favorable addition to the candidate's CV.
The candidate will be the first author, and I am the second author.
A candidate is not limited to completing one project. He/she can do as many as they like! (There are always topics to teach about)
The candidate, myself, King's College Hospital Department of Radiology and King's College all benefit from this publication.
