Summary This book addresses the most up-to-date imaging techniques that incorporate ultrasound in the evaluation of prostate cancer. The volume features an important section on the applied physics of ultrasound and the future techniques that promise to be routinely available as the ability to evaluate this optically illusive disease improves. The volume evaluates imaging of the prostate for the diagnosis and treatment of these benign conditions and the future of pelvic floor ultrasound in the male. The general scope encompasses the physics of ultrasound, the technical aspects on the use of ultrasound, and the actual present day state-of-the-art use of ultrasound in the treatment and diagnosis of men with prostatic issue. Prostate Ultrasound: Current Practice and Future Directions will be of great value to urologists, radiologists, medical oncologists ultrasound technicians and fellows and residents in urology
