Summary "This is the fifth edition to the Prostate volume in the BIS series. As with other titles in the series, this book focuses on the practical, need-to-know information regarding the diagnosis and prognosis of prostate cancer obtained on biopsy. Advances in surgical techniques have led to an increased number of prostate biopsies being performed, and recent pathological techniques have facilitated the evaluation of prostate biopsy material. This book provides detailed text with extensive photographs on the diagnosis of the full range of benign and malignant prostatic entities that would be seen on prostate biopsy. The print book will be supplemented with a website, which will provide 1800 additional images and a test bank of 50 questions"--Provided by publisher
