Prostate Ultrasound:Current Practice and Future Directionsaddresses the most up-to-date imaging techniques that incorporate ultrasound in the evaluation of prostate cancer. The volume features an important section on the applied physics of ultrasound and the future techniques that promise soon be to be routinely available as we continue to improve our ability to evaluate this optically illusive disease. The volume evaluates imaging of the prostate for the diagnosis and treatment of these benign conditions, and evaluates the future of pelvic floor ultrasound in the male. The general scope encompasses the physics of ultrasound, the technical aspects on the use of ultrasound, and the actual present day state of the art use of ultrasound in the treatment and diagnosis of men with prostatic issue. The volume also includes the unique feature of providing links to video clips that illustrate techniques of diagnostic ultrasound that will provide the reader with the foundation to perform accurate and safe ultrasound exams.

Prostate Ultrasound: Current Practice and Future Directionswill be of great value to urologists, radiologists, medical oncologists ultrasound technicians and fellows and residents in urology.

Editorial Reviews

"It is a well-written book with excellently labelledimages throughout, references to articles for more in-depth reading and helpfultips with respect to reducing US artefact. . This book would appeal tohealthcare professionals (urologists, trainee radiologists or specialistnurses) involved in US-guided prostate biopsy, particularly at the beginning oftheir training in the procedure."
