Prostate cancer follows lung cancer as the second most common male cancer. Given the increase in media attention to prostate cancer and prostate disease, attending physicians ultimately need to keep abreast of all diagnostic techniques available. Imaging of the Prostate has been edited and written by some of the world's leading experts and addresses the problems encountered during patient presentation. Superb quality radiological images - ultrasound, MRI and CT - illustrate chapters that are not only scientifically based but also written from the author's personal experience.
