Beschreibung:

This will prove to be a massively important work for practitioners dealing with the biggest killer in the Western world. With prostate cancer being malignancy No. 1 in men and bladder cancer and renal cancer becoming more prominent, a number of innovative treatments have become available that require better imaging including information on the location and extent of the tumors. The book features significant changes in imaging in oncological conditions related to the bladder, prostate and kidneys. The sole focus is on oncology in urology, mainly ultrasound and MRI, with organ-oriented topics. The latest technologies on imaging are included to better identify carcinomatous lesions and lymph node metastases. Each chapter ends with a section entitled ¿Considerations¿, reflecting on the optimal imaging approach, providing an algorithm for imaging per disease entity, and according to the evidence-based chronological and diagnostic follow-up. This is a state-of-the-art reference work on imaging in oncological urology for the urologist, radiologist and medical oncologist.
