Scrotal Pathology is a comprehensive practical guide to the management of patients who present with scrotal disorders. Introductory chapters consider imaging instrumentation, clinical evaluation, and clinical and imaging anatomy. The full range of disorders is then discussed in individual chapters organized according to clinical presentation. All clinical and imaging aspects are covered in depth, with full description of symptoms and explanation of the value of different clinical tests and imaging modalities. In addition, underlying histopathological features are presented and correlated with imaging features in order to clarify their pathological basis. For each disorder, therapeutic strategies are discussed and appraised. Adults and children are considered separately whenever necessary, bearing in mind that they often present essentially different scrotal pathology. The many images are all of high quality and were obtained using high-end equipment. The integrated information provided in this book will be invaluable in enabling different specialists to understand other perspectives and requirements and in filling gaps in knowledge.
