About the book

Science and research have always been crucial to furthering our understanding of cancers and their treatment. Ophthalmology and Radiology Imaging researches have resulted in major advancements in medical science. Recent discoveries made in various fields including genetics, immunology, and diagnostic imaging techniques have reshaped the foundations of science and formed many new paradigms for the repair, regeneration, and rehabilitation of countless disorders. Enough has been achieved already to make it clear that some fundamental insights are produced and have enormous possibilities for improving human health.

Imagination is the key to any discovery, and its presence in science to improve vision is no exception. Vision and imaging science are racing forward, spurred on by a host of exciting novel research discoveries and the efforts of scientists. This book, a collection of reviewed and relevant research chapters, will intend to provide readers with a comprehensive overview of the latest findings on Retinoblastoma, advanced technologies on early detection, diagnosis, and treatments which aims to provide a thorough overview of the recent developments by international scientists.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

M.Sc. Iva Ribic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
