This book features significant changes witnessed in imaging in oncological conditions related to the bladder, prostate and kidneys and their impact. With prostate cancer being malignancy No. 1 in men and bladder cancer and renal cancer becoming more prominent, 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 justifies 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 bigger for prostate cancer as significant improvements have been made in TransRectal Ultrasound and MRI imaging for lymph node metastases. The sole focus of this book is on oncology in urology, mainly Ultrasound and MRI, with topics being organ oriented.

The latest technologies on imaging are included, such as new development in ultrasound machines, ultrasound contrast media, MRI scanning, including MRI contrast agents, to better identify carcinomatous lesions and even lymph node metastases. Each chapter is finalized with Considerations, thus 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.

Imaging in Oncological Urology is a state-of-the-art reference work on imaging in oncological urology for the urologist, radiologist and medical oncologist.
