This volume builds on the success of the first edition of Imaging Pelvic Floor Disorders and is aimed at those practitioners with an interest in the imaging, diagnosis and treatment of pelvic floor dysfunction. Concise textual information from acknowledged experts is complemented by high-quality diagrams and images to provide a thorough update of this rapidly evolving field. Introductory chapters fully elucidate the anatomical basis underlying disorders of the pelvic floor. State of the art imaging techniques and their application in pelvic floor dysfunction are then discussed in detail. Additions since the first edition include consideration of the effect of aging and new chapters on perineal ultrasound, functional MRI and MRI of the levator muscles. The closing sections of the book describe the modern clinical management of pelvic floor dysfunction, including prolapse, urinary and faecal incontinence and constipation, with specific emphasis on the integration of diagnostic and treatment algorithms. Written for: Practitioners and clinicians in the fields radiology, urology, proctology/colorectal surgery, gynecology, gastroenterology

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Julie Sossaman, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This book first describes the anatomy and imaging of the pelvic floor, then treatment of pelvic floor disorders. This is an update of the 2003 edition.
Purpose: It provides an overview of techniques for imaging of the pelvic floor and describes clinical management of pelvic floor disorders.
Audience: This is an advanced book, aimed at radiologists or clinicians involved in diagnosing and treating patients with pelvic floor disorders.
Features: This is an excellent review of pelvic floor anatomy, including images. The authors describe techniques and interpretation of evacuation proctography, dynamic cystoproctography, functional MR imaging, and MR endoluminal imaging. There are also thorough discussions of urodynamics, urinary and anal incontinence, constipation, and prolapse accompanied by high quality MR and ultrasound images of both normal anatomy and pathology.
Assessment: This is high quality book that will be useful to any physician involved in the care of patients with pelvic floor disorders. The second edition includes a new discussion on the effect of aging on the pelvic floor. The technique of perineal ultrasound has been added and there are expanded sections on emerging techniques in MR imaging. As management of pelvic floor disorders has evolved, so must our ability to evaluate and diagnose these disorders. This book introduces radiologists to newer techniques to evaluate patients with these clinical problems.
