Abstract
Imaging and Technology in Urology: Principles and Clinical Applications is a practical and user-friendly consolidated source book for urologists, and urologists in training, regarding the basic science of imaging modalities used on a day-to-day basis in urological practice. Similarly, the intention is to provide an introduction to the technology that is used in the practice of urological surgery and the management of urological patients in the clinical setting. This knowledge is one of the eight separate disciplines examined in the oral component of the knowledge examination for independent, consultant, practice in urology in the UK. The book is also valuable to urologists and urological trainees outside of the UK and in other surgical specialities.

Abstract
This text provides a comprehensive, state-of-the-art review of the field, and will serve as a valuable practical resource for clinicians with an interest in conducting urodynamics. The book reviews new data about the indications, conduct, and interpretation of various aspects of urodynamic testing. With an emphasis on clinical urodynamics, it is arranged into sections that correspond with the basic elements of urodynamic testing; noninvasive urodynamics (uroflow and post void residual), cystometrogram, storage studies (leak point pressures, stability, compliance and capacity), and voiding phases (pressure flow study). Other testing modalities that are discussed include EMG testing, fluoroscopy, and provocative maneuvers. Practical Urodynamics for the Clinician will serve as a very useful and practical resource for physicians and researchers dealing with, and interested in, this complex physiologic testing tool. It will provide a concise yet comprehensive summary of the field that will help guide the selection of patients for the study, preparation of the patient, the conduct of the study, and finally, the interpretation of the urodynamics evaluation.
Contents
The Basic Science Behind Practical/Clinical Urodynamics Analysis -- Urodynamics Equipment: What the Clinician Needs to Know to Set Up the Lab -- The Clinical Evaluation of the Patient Who Requires Urodynamics -- Noninvasive Urodynamics -- The Cystometrogram -- The Pressure Flow Study -- The EMG -- The Use of Fluoroscopy -- Putting it All Together: Practical Advice on Clinical Urodynamics -- Nomograms -- Ambulatory Urodynamics -- Bedside Urodynamics -- Practical Urodynamics in Children.

Abstract
Urological problems are so common as to represent a significant burden for many primary care physicians and GPs in their everyday practice worldwide. A major concern is how far to go themselves in the diagnosis and treatment of a urological diseases and when to refer the patient for specialist care. Problem Based Urology provides an easy and user-friendly tool to assist in decision making in the treatment of the more common urological problems and the most appropriate timing for referral to specialist care. Within each chapter, one or more flow charts are included to help the reader to formulate the most likely diagnosis on the basis of findings from medical history, examination and investigations, and to start an appropriate first-line treatment or to refer the patient to the specialist where appropriate. This book will appeal to the primary care physician or general practitioner and is an invaluable reference for professionals dealing with common urological complaints.
