This book provides a practical guide in the use of imaging and visualization technologies in urology. It details how output from diagnostic systems, can be represented through synthetic, virtual and augmented reality tools, such as holograms and three dimensional (3D) modelling and how they can improve everyday surgical procedures including laparoscopic, robotic-assisted, open, endoscopic along with the latest and most innovative approaches.
Anatomy for Urologic Surgeons in the Digital Era: Scanning, Modelling and 3D Printing systematically reviews diagnostic imaging, visualization tools available in urology and is a valuable resource for all practicing and in-training urological surgeons.
Prof. Emre Huri: He was born in Antioch (Antakya), one of the oldest and historic cities in the world. He graduated from Hacettepe University Faculty of Medicine in 2001. Same year, he started urology residency in Ankara Training and Research Hospital at urology clinic.

He is the president of Association of Surgical Anatomy and Technologies, Director of International Continence Society (ICS) Institute School of Modern Technology (since 2018). Huri is an internationally well-known opinion-leader in education with using cadaveric and 3D medical printed/VR and AR models, 3D organ modeling and adaption of technologic developments in the urology curriculum. His recent studies are on the topic of virtual urological surgery models, 3D medical printing, surgical planning with virtual and augmented reality and health technologies. His main sub-specialty is female, functional urologic surgeries, neurourology, surgical anatomy and surgical education.
