Overview

The first Amirsys publication devoted solely to genitourinary cancers has finally arrived. In Specialty Imaging: Genitourinary Oncology, Dr. Akram Shaaban and team skillfully guide clinicians through the imaging appearances, staging, and treatment techniques for cancers of the kidney, bladder, adrenal glands, urethra, testicle, and prostate. The 130 pages of fast-reading, bulleted text are enriched with well over 450 vivid images, each of which identifies and explains clinically significant factors. The recently published Seventh Edition AJCC cancer staging tables are included to aid the staging discussions, providing definitions for TNM and AJCC prognostic groups for all genitourinary cancers. This is a must-have reference for radiologists, oncologists, and others whose work quality depends on an accurate understanding of genitourinary system cancers.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Charles C Matthews, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This concise, illustrated review of genitourinary tumors and staging is part of the Specialty Imaging series.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide an in-depth review of genitourinary tumors and staging, reflecting the seventh edition of the AJCC Cancer Staging Manual, Edge et al. (Springer, 2010). The emphasis is on tumor staging by diagnostic imaging findings. This is essential information for radiologists for proper evaluation of oncology patients. The authors succeed extremely well in this beautifully illustrated book.
Audience: The book is intended for radiologists, both residents in training and practicing physicians, but urologists and oncologists also may use the book for imaging correlation. The authors are authorities in the field from the Universities of Utah and Pittsburgh.
Features: Genitourinary tumors are reviewed organ-by-organ in the same fashion. The book begins with the adrenal glands and proceeds caudally to the testicles. The ovaries and uterus are not included; they are the topic of another title in the series. The TNM staging system for each organ is introduced, followed by artist drawings of the various features. Text and references are then presented in about four pages in a bulleted format including pathology, imaging findings, clinical issues, and reporting checklist. Numerous clinical images come next, reviewing the various features and stages in the TNM system. Most of the images are CT images, although other modalities such as MRI, PET, ultrasound, and nuclear medicine are included. The gallery of images is quite comprehensive. For example, the chapter on renal carcinoma has over 100.
Assessment: This is a high-quality review of genitourinary tumors and staging. The book is well organized for rapid and concise understanding of the material. The TNM features are wonderfully depicted with artist drawings and abundant clinical material. The diagnostic images are very helpful to understand the nuances in the staging system, particularly for primary tumor (T) definitions. Strengths and weakness of various imaging modalities are also covered. I highly recommend this book for those who want more specialized knowledge.
