Part of the Handbuch der Urologie Encyclopedia of Urology Encyclopédie d’Urologie book series (HDBUROL)


The use of radioactive isotopes for diagnostic Urology has had limited clinical application to date. Most of the published work has dealt with experimental studies pointing the way to possible clinical usefulness.
