Prostate cancer is now the primary malignancy in men, while bladder and renal cancer are not far behind.
This hugely important book details significant changes in imaging in oncological conditions related to the bladder, prostate and kidneys. The 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 includes a section that outlines the optimal imaging approach, providing an algorithm for imaging per disease entity, and according to the evidence-based chronological and diagnostic follow-up.
What makes this book so timely is that an increasing number of innovative treatments have become available that require better imaging, including information on the location and extent of the tumors.
Particularly in renal cell cancer an increasing number of small tumors are identified that justify nefron sparing approaches such as cryosurgery and heat therapies, a prerequisite for which is an adequate follow-up, including imaging.
The need for improved imaging is even more urgent for prostate cancer as significant improvements have been made in TransRectal Ultrasound and MRI imaging for lymph node metastases.
