Abstract
This book, now in an extensively revised second edition, provides an exhaustive review of the state of the art in the management of prostate cancer, from screening to treatment, with emphasis on a multidisciplinary approach. The editors are very excited about the outstanding new or updated contributions from the different expert authors. The opening chapters address basic aspects including epidemiology, pathology, biology, genetics, and chemoprevention. The role of individual and mass screening is carefully appraised, and extensive attention is devoted to diagnosis and clinical work-up by means of recently implemented investigations such as multiparametric MRI and choline PET-CT. The use of active surveillance is examined in detail. Subsequent chapters discuss the different therapies that may be employed: open and minimally invasive, including robot-assisted, radical prostatectomy, the various forms of radiation treatment, high-intensity focused ultrasound, cryotherapy, hormonal manipulations, chemotherapy, targeted therapies, and immunotherapy. Up-to-date results from practice-changing phase III randomized clinical trials are included and special insights are provided into the interpretation of results and the patient's perspective.

Abstract
This text provides a comprehensive review of pathophysiology, molecular and cell biology aspects of CRPC, discusses all major clinical trials that have led to approval of 6 new drugs since 2004, explores the role of bone preservation strategies, in depth analysis of combination and sequencing strategies, outlines upcoming novel drugs and trends in research, and stresses the role of palliative care in this incurable disease. Managing Metastatic Prostate Cancer in Your Urological Oncology Practice will serve as a very useful resource for physicians and researchers dealing with, and interested in prostate cancer. It provides a concise yet comprehensive summary of the current status of the field that will help guide patient management and stimulate investigative efforts. All chapters are written by experts in their fields and will include the most up to date scientific and clinical information.

Abstract
In the new edition of this very successful book, European and North American experts present the state of the art in diagnostic and therapeutic radionuclide procedures. The aim is to examine established and emerging clinical applications in detail, rather than to consider everything included in the comprehensive texts already available within the field. This “practical” approach ensures that the book will be a valuable guide for nuclear medicine physicians, technologists, students, and interested clinicians alike. This edition of Clinical Nuclear Medicine has been extensively revised to take account of recent developments. The roles of SPECT/CT, PET/CT, and PET/MRI are clearly explained and illustrated, and the coverage extended to encompass, for example, novel PET tracers and therapeutic radionuclides, advanced techniques of brain imaging, and the development of theranostics. Readers will be fully persuaded of the ever-increasing value of nuclear medicine techniques in depicting physiology and function and complementing anatomic modalities such as CT, MRI, and ultrasound.
