Comprehensive Textbook of Genitourinary Oncology was the first major textbook to focus on the field of genitourinary oncology from the combined perspectives of the molecular biologist, pathologist, oncologist and urologist. The first edition of the book had three fundamental goals: 1) to be a textbook that could be read and used by practicing physicians, 2) to be an authoritative textbook for basic scientists, 3) to be an effective interpretation of this field for trainees in surgery, medical and radiation oncology, and pathology. The goals for the 4th edition remain essentially the same. The book takes a systems approach to this field, with sections on prostate, bladder, kidney, testis, and penile cancers, as well as one each on pediatric and other (less common) malignancies. This volume will introduce and distill the combined knowledge and expertise of specialist from a multitude of scientific and clinical disciplines who are internationally recognized leaders in their fields and who themselves have contributed to the field. As in the last edition, authors will be drawn form the fields of urological surgery, medical oncology, radiation oncology, pathology, radiology as well as translational scientists and epidemiologists.
Key Features:NEW! Covers merging image-guided targeted technologies such as magnetic resonance image-guided high-intensity focused ultrasound, which can precisely ablate cancerous cells without damage to surrounding healthy tissue. NEW! Greater focus on the multidisciplinary care of patients with urological cancers with improved outcomes dependent on collaborative development of care plans that incorporate evidence-based management. NEW! Includes new imaging modalities including diffusion-weighted imaging and magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging which help clinicians differentiate tumor subtypes and target treatment NEW! Increase coverage of molecular classification of cancers and the delineation of critical pathways that can identify new targets for systemic therapy and demonstrate how cells react to particular drugs. NEW! Reviews combined imaging technology, such as MR-ultrasound fusion to better guide needle biopsies, and PET-CT imaging to identify and locate biologically active metastatic lesions, as well as novel radiotracers highly specific for key molecules present in NEW! Summarize and evaluate the latest research on existing and investigational new drugs. Most comprehensive GU cancer book on the market Editors represent each of the major sub areas in this field (Vogelzang/medical oncology, Scardino/urology (prostate), Zelefsky/radiation oncology, and Linehan/urology (kidney) Multi-modality approach of the book reflects the way in which these cancers are managed and encourages multidisciplinary sales opportunities

The thoroughly updated Fifth Edition of Pediatric Neuroimaging is a highly illustrated text-reference that describes and illustrates the full range of pediatric disorders diagnosable by modern neuroimaging. Covering the diagnosis of brain, spinal, and head and neck disorders in the pediatric patient, the text is rooted in the principle that the proper interpretation of studies requires the acquisition of high-quality images and an understanding of the basic concepts of neuroembryology, normal development, and pathophysiology. Much coverage is given to the disorders seen in everyday practice. The emphasis is on CT and MRI, which are the optimal imaging modalities in children.
The first two chapters describe useful imaging techniques in this patient population and the imaging manifestations of normal development, to distinguish that from manifestations of disease. The final ten chapters of the book are divided by groups of diseases, with numerous drawings and images that illuminate the underlying pathologic and embryologic/genetic bases of each disorder. The goal is provide a basic approach to groups of diseases, then offer detailed information about the clinical manifestations, underlying biochemistry, molecular biology, genetics and/or pathology of specific disorders.
The book incorporates the essential concepts for obtaining good images and understanding normal development, which helps the reader to distinguish normal developmental changes from disease.
Key FeaturesMore than 2500 high-quality illustrations–MRI, CT, DWI, MR spectroscopy, fMRI–showing different stages of brain development and differentiating immaturity from disease discussion of normal brain development, malformations, brain injuries, and vascular disorders Up-to-date applications of diffusion imaging, diffusion tensor imaging, perfusion imaging and proton spectroscopy–and which techniques are best suited to each age group discussion of newly described diseases and new classifications of disorders, such as brain tumors, malformations and metabolic disorders embryology, pathology and molecular biology included where applicable, to reinforce understanding of disease and its radiologic manifestations List of disorders helps reader to quickly locate a disorder within the text
