About this book

Imaging in medicine has been the primary modality for identification of altered structure due to disease processes. As a non-invasive, safe and relatively inexpensive imaging modality, ultrasound has been embraced by many medical specialties as the ‘go to’ technology. With ever changing technology and regulatory requirements, Practical Urologic Ultrasound provides a compendium of information for the practicing urologist. Written exclusively by clinical urologists, this comprehensive volume features original research on the basic science of ultrasound and explores all aspects of the subject, beginning with the physical science of ultrasound and continuing through clinical applications in urology.

Bolstered with detailed illustrations and contributions from experts in the field, Practical Urologic Ultrasound is an authoritative and practical reference for all urologists in their mission to provide excellence in patient care.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“In this comprehensive textbook, editors P. Fulgham and B. Gilbert with the help of nearly 20 experts aimed to address all aspects of clinical US in urology. … This outstanding textbook is richly illustrated and presented extremely useful information for the practice. We recommend it to all urologists, certified or still in-training.” (European Urology Today, February-March, 2014)

“This is an important book for urologists who use ultrasonography in daily practice. … This book also should be required reading for residents in urology and radiology. … This book does an excellent job of providing a useful, practical review of the principles of urologic ultrasonography. It is well written and the information is presented clearly. It will enable readers to further incorporate ultrasonography in clinical practice to the benefit of their patients.” (Perry Weiner, Doody’s Book Reviews, October, 2013)
