About this book

This book, now in its second edition, provides a comprehensive analysis of imaging of the kidneys, upper urinary tract, and ureters, covering the normal anatomy and anatomic variants as well as all renal and urinary system pathologies. The relevant imaging modalities are first discussed, with detailed description of their applications. The entire spectrum of kidney pathologies is then presented in a series of detailed chapters with up-to-date references, high-quality images, informative schemes, and figures showing macroscopic and microscopic surgical and pathologic specimens. Chapters relating to the latest innovations in tumor ablation, vascular and nonvascular interventional procedures, and parametric and molecular imaging have been updated to reflect progress in these rapidly evolving fields. This book will be of great interest to all radiologists, oncologists, nephrologists, and urologists who are involved in the management of kidney pathologies.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“The objective is to present renal imaging in a simple but clinically relevant way for practitioners. This worthy objective has been achieved nicely in this book. Nephrologists, urologists, radiologists, oncologists, medical students, and fellows in these disciplines are the intended audience. … It is well written and includes a significant number of illustrations and pictures that add to its value.” (Hanna W. Mawad, Doody’s Book Reviews, January, 2015)
