"This book may appeal to two different types of readers: scientists looking for reviews of interesting subjects in developmental biology and clinicians seeking an up-to-date review of a clinical topic in hematology, immunology, or infectious disease.This book offers a concise overview of the many challenges of radiologic imaging to diagnose urologic conditions. It focuses on the proper technique and appropriate imaging modality for each one. It serves as an excellent quick reference for radiologists dealing with the GU system or urologists caring for patients with GU conditions."- Jay Goldsmith, MD (Tulane University School of Medicine) Doody Review!
