Leading urologists and expert specialists review and summarize for family practitioners the latest thinking about how best to evaluate, diagnose, and treat all the most commonly encountered urological conditions. Topics discussed range from urinary tract infections in children and adults to the evaluation and treatment of hematuria, kidney stones, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), interstitial cystitis, and prostatitis. Additional chapters are devoted to the management of urologic problems during pregnancy, female urinary incontinence, and erectile dysfunction. Advances in urologic imaging-ultrasonography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and radionucleotide imaging-are also discussed, as are the most frequently used complementary medicines.
