A case-based reference for diagnosing urologic disorders

Teaching Atlas of Urologic Imaging presents a case-based approach to selecting the multimodality imaging strategies for the most frequently encountered urologic disorders. The book provides comprehensive coverage of the latest imaging techniques with an emphasis on newer modalities such as CT intravenous pyelograms (CT-IVP) and MRI for the genitourinary system. Each case opens with a concise description of the clinical presentation, radiologic findings, diagnosis, and differential diagnosis. It then concludes with a detailed discussion of the background, clinical findings, pathology, imaging findings, treatment, and prognosis for that case, and pertinent references.


  • Nearly 400 high-quality illustrations, including 47 in full color, demonstrate anatomy and pathology
  • Consistent format of each chapter enhances ease of use
  • Bulleted lists of differential diagnoses are ideal for rapid review

Ideal for radiologists, urologists, and nephrologists, this book provides a quick reference for common imaging findings and the most appropriate imaging strategies for specific diseases. Its case-based format also makes it a valuable resource for residents preparing for board examinations.

A quick primary reference source for interpreting images and determining the diagnosis of urologic pathologies...The material is organized to help physicians diagnose urologic pathologies in a step-by-step process that is easy to follow...The book's strengths are the diagnostic pearls" and the "imaging findings" sections...the images are of fine quality with excellent clarity and detail."--Radiologic Technology

"A very nicely produced teaching atlas of urologic imaging that includes all imaging techniques...this comprehensive group of uroradiologic cases covers the gamut of the field...a worthwhile addition...easy to read."--Doody's Review

"An updated casebook with superb imaging illustrations and easy-to-read text. The multiple short cases make it ideal for radiologists-in-training with short breaks, for instance while on duty waiting for patients, where one could just go through a case or two without missing continuity."--Acta Radiologica

"Each case is presented with a short clinical history and is illustrated with one or more figures...includes an excellent presentation of images which give the reader an all-inclusive and comprehensive overview...Various images, such as US, CT scans, nuclear renal scan or MRI, are accompanied with explanatory comments...a useful reference guide in the daily practice."--European Urology Today
