Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Bennett S. Greenspan, MD, MS (Georgia Regents University)
Description: This is the fifth edition of an introductory book of uroradiology that covers the basic and critical information radiologists need to know. The book was first published in 1990, and the fourth edition was published in 2008.
Purpose: The purpose is to present the information relevant for the practice of uroradiology.
Audience: The book is written for practicing radiologists and radiology residents.
Features: A chapter on the anatomy and embryology of the genitourinary tract begins the book. The next three chapters discuss congenital anomalies, diagnostic techniques, and functional renal anatomy, physiology, and aspects of contrast media. The remaining 17 chapters are divided into various topics, such as renal cystic disease, renal tumors, renal inflammatory disease, the urinary bladder, prostate and seminal vesicles, and diseases of the uterus. The book is easy to read, and it is easy to look up various topics. Textboxes in each chapter highlight key points and differential diagnoses. The section on techniques includes a discussion of radionuclide scrotal imaging, a technique that has been completely replaced with ultrasound. In the description of ultrasound, its use for testicular torsion vs. epididymo-orchitis is underemphasized. The references for nuclear medicine techniques other than PET are somewhat outdated. In figure 8.1, the caption refers to arrows to point out renal cysts and solid tumors, but there are no arrows.
Assessment: Overall, this is an excellent book on uroradiology. It presents the pertinent and timely information radiologists need to know for their practice, and radiology residents need to know to develop competence in the field. There has been substantial revision, making this a useful reference in the field.

This is an introductory textbook reviewing the spectrum of uroradiologic procedures and diagnosis. It is a collaborative effort combining two prior introductory textbooks from 1990: Textbook of Uroradiology and Essentials of Uroradiology. The authors state that the book is written by applying a standard of ""what one ought to know rather than what there is to know."" It starts at a basic level, examining common disease states and how they can best be imaged. This book is designed for radiology residents, but could also be used by urology residents to gain a better understanding of what radiologic procedures have to offer in the care of their patients. It would also be useful for a radiologist in general practice. The text is well organized, beginning with anatomy and embryology and covering all major developmental and acquired diseases for genitourinary system. It is well illustrated with line drawings and case material. In addition to conventional radiographic techniques, it includes CT, MRI, ultrasound, and nuclear medicine where appropriate. Interventional techniques are discussed only briefly, and a more specialized textbook would be needed if the reader was interested in performing specialized procedures. By combining two excellent basic uroradiology textbooks this book gives an excellent, well-rounded overview of the field. It is easy to read and by limiting the scope it can easily be completed during a preliminary uroradiology rotation. Additionally, it is comprehensive enough to be used as board review material. This makes it ideally suited for radiology residents. In contrast to textbooks that concentrate on a singlemodality, this book emphasizes which modality is best for a given disease entity, making it useful for those in a general practice.
Combines the features of two books published in 1990<-->"Essentials of Uroradiology" by Amis and Newhouse, and "Textbook of Uroradiology" by McCallum; the first was aimed primarily at radiology residents, while the second was more comprehensive and intended for practitioners. The present text is intended for training as well as for reference, without being encyclopedic. Twenty chapters cover anatomy and embryology, congenital anomalies, diagnostic and interventional techniques, and various types of renal pathology. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
The third edition now includes a section on the female genital tract and another on the retroperitoneum; the section on urography has been reduced. Other topics include: anatomy and embryology; congenital anomalies; diagnostic techniques; functional renal anatomy, physiology, and contrast media; renal cystic disease; renal tumors; renal inflammatory disease, nephrocalcinosis and nephrolithiasis, vascular diseases, renal hypertension, renal failure, and so on. Each chapter is supplemented with photographs and additional bibliography. This text is intended for an introductory rotation on genitourinary radiology. The authors are professors of radiology and urology in the US. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
