Ultrasound of the Urogenital System
BeschreibungSpecialists working in urology or renal medicine are well aware that ultrasound is one of the most powerful and adaptable diagnostic tools in their arsenal. In Ultrasound of the Urogenital System expert practitioners offer the information needed to maximize its potential in daily practice.Features include: A broad range of expertise-renowned contributors cover topics from medical, surgical, and oncological perspectives. Highly targeted information-designed especially for radiologists, sonographers, and physicians of all levels working in urology and renal medicine. Comprehensive treatment-of radiological intervention and kidney transplantation, diseases of the collecting system and ureters, the bladder and prostate, and the penis and testes. Illustrated throughout-more than 200 images of superb quality. Special sections-on the genito-urinary tract in the child, the oncological treatment of tumors, renal trauma and the use of other imaging modalities in the genito-urinary tract. Up-to-date research-chapters covering new developments, including contrast agents in the native and transplant kidney A vital reference in the clinic and as a useful review for radiologists in training, this truly unique volume compiles the very latest and most complete information on the use of ultrasound in the urogenital system. This book is intended to be used and read by practicing radiologists, sonographers, and physicians working in urology and renal medicine, who have an interest in fully exploiting the diagnostic power of ultrasound imaging. Central to this book is ultrasound imaging as it contributes to the overall management of renal-based problems. Support is provided by medical, surgical, and oncological information. Adjunct imaging methods are discussed where it is important to appreciate the role of other modalities. An interventional section is included for those cases where ultrasound is used in guiding interventional procedures. An excellent and compact, yet comprehensive, introduction to the use of ultrasound, providing detailed assessment of the urogenital system.
