Genital Ultrasound presents a comprehensive, evidence based reference book on genital ultrasound. The volume is divided into three sections: Genital Ultrasound Basics, Scrotal Ultrasound and Penile Ultrasound. The first section covers the history of ultrasound, including a discussion of regulations surrounding the performance of ultrasound examinations by urologists. This section also provides an in depth review of ultrasound physics, knobology and patient safety. The second and third sections begin with normal ultrasound embryology and anatomy, followed by ultrasound conventions and orientation, scanning protocol and technique. A discussion of transducer selection, the survey scan, color and Spectral Doppler is also included.
With broad contributions from authorities in the field, Genital Ultrasound is a valuable resource to urologists, andrologists and fellows and residents performing office ultrasound.
