About this book

Based on the highly successful first edition of Prostate Biopsy: Indications, Techniques, and Complications, this new volume presents new concepts that have emerged in answer to current questions from its audience. Many new perspectives and technologies are presented, many from the authors’ internationally recognized work on the topic. Substantial developments in techniques and complications are explored in detail. The chapter authors comprise a complete spectrum of specialists in their respective subject areas. All authors are internationally accepted as the premier authorities on their chosen topics. Prostate Cancer Diagnosis: PSA, Biopsy, and Beyond presents new data on the controversial issue of PSA screening and thresholds as indication to perform biopsy. Office based transrectal saturation biopsy is covered in detail. Other topics explored include template guided biopsy and image-guided biopsy as well as a completely new paradigm for prevention of complications.

Prostate Cancer Diagnosis: PSA, Biopsy, and Beyond will be of great value and utility to all practicing urologists.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This textbook, aimed to provide the reader with an exhaustive update, even if some points-of-view could be construed as controversial. … The role of the pathologist was described in a very well-illustrated chapter that presents various pathological features, while the need of effective collaboration with clinicians was also underscored by the authors. … Most urologists will find valuable information in this outstanding textbook, which is undoubtedly useful for their practice.” (European Urology Today, June-July, 2013)

“This book addresses the very timely issues of prostate cancer screening, diagnosis, and management of biopsy findings suspicious but short of a diagnosis of prostate cancer. … This is a timely and outstanding review of complex and controversial issues pertaining to prostate cancer diagnosis. It is a terrific resource for clinicians, public health specialists, and lay people interested in obtaining a thorough understanding of these critical issues that affect so many men.” (Mark Hurwitz, Doody’s Book Reviews, March, 2013)
