About this book


Scrotal Pathology is a comprehensive practical guide to the management of patients who present with scrotal disorders. Introductory chapters consider imaging instrumentation, clinical evaluation, and clinical and imaging anatomy. The full range of disorders is then discussed in individual chapters organized according to clinical presentation. All clinical and imaging aspects are covered in depth, with full description of symptoms and explanation of the value of different clinical tests and imaging modalities. In addition, underlying histopathological features are presented and correlated with imaging features in order to clarify their pathological basis. For each disorder, therapeutic strategies are discussed and appraised. Adults and children are considered separately whenever necessary, bearing in mind that they often present essentially different scrotal pathology. The many images are all of high quality and were obtained using high-end equipment. The integrated information provided in this book will be invaluable in enabling different specialists to understand other perspectives and requirements and in filling gaps in knowledge.

From the reviews:

“The aim of this 352 page book was to review, study and present in their ‘variety’ all disease types and pathologic conditions affecting the scrotum. … The chapter lay-out … is quite useful and gives the reader a comprehensive, exhaustive and precise spectrum of the presented and discussed topic, illustrated by very beautiful images. … this book should be considered a pace-setter in the field, giving radiologists, urologists, andrologists, paediatric surgeons and paediatricians a very handy instrument … .” (Giampiero Beluffi, La radiologia medica, Vol. 118, 2013)

“This book is the first comprehensive practical guide on scrotal pathology. … this book is a useful resource for all colleagues with a primary interest in scrotal pathology as well as for those who are not experts in this field but who encounter scrotal diseases during their daily medical workups. … ‘This monograph will certainly also facilitate the cooperation between radiologists and other medical doctors, especially urologists, by describing their respective diagnostic and therapeutic approaches.’” (Francesco Montorsi, European Urology, Vol. 61 (4), 2012)
