The treatment of prostate cancer continues to be problematic owing to serious side-effects, including erectile dysfunction and urinary incontinence. Robotic radiosurgery offers a novel, rapid, non-invasive outpatient treatment option that combines robotics, advanced image-guided spatial positioning, and motion detection with submillimeter precision. This book examines all aspects of the treatment of prostate cancer with robotic radiosurgery. It explains how image-guided robotic radiosurgery overcomes the problem of patient motion during radiation therapy by continuously identifying the precise location of the prostate tumor throughout the course of treatment. Hypofractionated radiation delivery by means of robotic radiosurgery systems is also discussed in detail. The book closes by examining other emerging genitourinary applications of robotic radiosurgery. All of the authors are experts in their field who present a persuasive case for this fascinating technique.
This is a working guide to the use of drugs in the treatment of urological disease. The content is arranged so that the busy urologist can go quickly and easily to the relevant section. Coverage of treatment is evidence-based. It is the only current book on drug treatment in urology. Great strides have been made in the understanding of the scientific basis of urological conditions and this has allowed the development of drugs for a wide variety of urological disorders. This book provides urologists with a working guide to the rapidly growing armoury of drugs available to them.
This book provides current, comprehensive, and clear explanations of the physics behind medical and biomedical applications of shock waves. Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy is one of the greatest medical advances of our time, and its techniques and clinical devices are continuously evolving. Further research continues to improve the understanding of calculi fragmentation and tissue-damaging mechanisms. Shock waves are also used in orthopedics and traumatology. Possible applications in oncology, cardiology, dentistry, gene therapy, cell transfection, transformation of fungi and bacteria, as well as the inactivation of microorganisms are promising approaches for clinical treatment, industrial applications and research. Medical and Biomedical Applications of Shock Waves is useful as a guide for students, technicians and researchers working in universities and laboratories. Chemists, biologists, physicians and veterinarians, involved in research or clinical practice will find useful advice, but also engineers and physicists may benefit from the overview of current research endeavors and future directions. Furthermore, it may also serve to direct manufacturers towards the design of more efficient and safer clinical, industrial and laboratory equipment.
Urogynaecological problems are one of the most common reasons that women are referred to the hospital services, and can account for up to a fifth of the gynaecological surgery waiting list at any time. Pelvic floor problems can have a huge impact on the patient's quality of life, and therefore should be managed appropriately. Compact, portable, and comprehensive, this new addition to the Oxford Specialist Handbooks in Obstetrics and Gynaecology series covers all aspects of pelvic floor function and dysfunction, and approaches to assessment and management in all compartments (the bladder, reproductive system, and bowel). Special chapters are dedicated to urogynaecological issues in pregnancy and childbirth, and also to the effects of age on the pelvic floor. Covering all material needed for those undertaking the RCOG Advanced Training Skills Module in Urogynaecology and Vaginal Surgery, this is an invaluable guide for both senior general trainees in Gynaecology, and subspecialty trainees in urogynaecology.
This SpringerBrief provides an update on endometriosis research -- from the underlying mechanisms, predisposing factors, role of environmental pollutants, treatment options, impact on quality of life, and biomarkers, to emerging treatment modalities in order to help clinicians to pursue a patient-centered approach in managing the disease. This book provides clinicians with a better insight into early diagnosis and management of endometriosis. It explores the possible identification of proteins in different types of endometriosis diseases and at different stages of the progression. This may aid in the discovery of potential biomarkers for non-invasive diagnosis of these diseases. The ability to identify a protein, common between women of different races, ages and in different regions of the world will hopefully contribute to improving women's health worldwide.
This atlas features sequential pictures for most reconstructive urology procedures, also covering laparoscopic assisted procedures such as orthotopic neobladder and ileocystoplasty. Unlike many other titles covering this subject however, illustrations in the majority of chapters in this work are drawn purely from a single case, allowing the reader to chart such complex surgeries step-by-step.
Laparoscopic assisted procedures drastically reduce the operative time required, and those surgeons with moderate familiarity with urology and laparoscopic process should be able to complete these operations comfortably.
Though the use of advanced technology is described, the book has been constructed in such a way that urologists from both developed and developing countries would be able to pick up the technical tips featured to perform the laparoscopic procedures also using simplified devices.
This book also deals with some of the unusual situations or complications that the vastly experienced authors have personally faced in their careers to date, offering problem-solving tips and pitfalls to avoid, accompanied again by diagrams or photographs where appropriate.
Finally, a CD-ROM featuring videos of many of the procedures covered in the body of the text is packaged with the book, to offer a comprehensive read for all practicing urologists and surgical trainees across the globe.
Bladder cancer is an international public health problem affecting millions of people in both developed and underdeveloped nations. This major urologic malignancy was one of the first cancers to be linked to occupational and environmental exposure to carcinogens. Bladder cancer is the 5th most common cancer of American men and the 8th most common cancer of American women. Sixty thousand new cases of the disease are diagnosed each year in the US alone; disease prevalence is high in western nations due to the predominance of the chronic relapsing form of cancer that occurs in these countries (USA prevalence estimated to be 600,000; NCI-SEER database). This single fact makes bladder cancer one of the most expensive cancers to treat. Treatment and Management of Bladder Cancer, drawing on the expertise of an international community of experts in the field, provides the reader with all aspects of diagnosis and treatment pertaining to bladder cancer.
As an additional feature, the book will include a cd-rom containing the figures and legends from each chapter in a user-friendly format, in order to further aid the reader.
This book covers novel strategies and state of the art approaches for automated non-invasive systems for early prostate cancer diagnosis.

Generally, The CAD systems analyze the prostate images in three steps: (i) prostate segmentation; (ii) Prostate description or feature extraction; and (iii) classification of the prostate status. Explores all of the latest research and developments in state-of-the art imaging of the prostate from world class experts. Contains a comprehensive overview of 2D/3D Shape Modeling for MRI data. Presents a detailed examination of automated segmentation of the prostate in 3D imaging. Examines Computer-Aided-Diagnosis through automated techniques. There will be extensive references at the end of each chapter to enhance further study.
