Main description:

A book such as this, correlating radiologic findings with the associated gross and microscopic pathologic findings, has never been offered to the medical community. It contains radiologic images, in a variety of formats (ultrasound, CT scan, MRI scan) correlated with gross photos and photomicrographs of a wide spectrum of pathologic entities, including their variants, occurring in the following organs or anatomic sites.

This book would be of particular interest to radiologists and radiologists-in training, who naturally are very cognizant of radiologic abnormalities, but who rarely, if ever, encounter visual images of the pathologic lesions that they diagnose. It will also be of interest to pathologists and pathologists-in-training, urologists, GU radiation oncologists, and GU medical oncologists.


Highly illustrated with all imaging modalities including US, CT and MRI

Each disease entity includes its pathological basis, with gross and microscopic images

Concise with valuable pearls, tips and differential diagnosis

Succinct chapters written by experts in radiology and pathology

Bulleted lists and tables for quick review

Back cover:

Genitourinary Radiology: Kidney, Bladder and Urethra: The Pathologic Basis provides a lavishly illustrated guide to the radiologic and pathologic features of a broad spectrum of genitourinary diseases of the urinary tract, including the entities most commonly  encountered in day to day practice. The editors are authorities in the fields of  genitourinary radiology and pathology, and the authors of each chapter are renowned radiologists. The pathology content of the chapters has been provided by an internationally recognized genitourinary pathologist.


Genitourinary Radiology: Kidney, Bladder and Urethra: The Pathologic Basis covers  inflammatory conditions, vascular disorders and cystic disease of the kidney; neoplasms of the kidney, renal pelvis, bladder and urethra; non-neoplastic disorders of the renal pelvis, bladder and urethra; kidney and bladder trauma; calculus disease; and medical renal disease. General, plain film, intravenous pyelography, ultrasound, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, nuclear medicine imaging and PET imaging of each disease entity are included. Accompanying the majority of the radiological narratives are complementary descriptions of the gross and microscopic features of the disease entities. 


Genitourinary Radiology: Kidney, Bladder and Urethra: The Pathologic Basis is aimed at radiologists in private and academic practice, radiology residents, urologists, urology trainees, pathology trainees and fellows specializing in genitourinary pathology. Both experts and beginners can use this excellent reference book to enhance their skills in the fields of genitourinary radiology and pathology.

Dr. Vikram S. Dogra is currently Professor of Radiology and  Urology at the University of Rochester New York. He is fellow of the European Society of Urogenital Radiology and fellow of the Society of  Uroradiology. He has taught and trained hundreds of radiology residents and trained many fellows in radiology from Egypt, India, China, Sri Lanka, Mexico, Turkey and Israel. Dr. Dogra has 7 books of Radiology to his credit. Dr. Dogra is also current chair of the continuous professional improvement - Genito Urinary module subcommittee of the American College of Radiology.

Dr. Gregory T. MacLennan earned his M.D. degree from the University of Manitoba, Canada, in 1971. He spent six years training in General Surgery and Urology at Manitoba Affiliated Teaching Hospitals, and followed this with a fellowship in Urodynamics at St. Peter's Hospitals, London, England. From 1978 until 1989, Dr. MacLennan practiced Urology in Grand Forks, N.D. and progressed from Clinical Instructor to Associate Professor of Surgery at the University of North Dakota School of Medicine. In 1989, he returned to Manitoba Affiliated Teaching Hospitals and spent 5 years in Residency and fellowship training in Anatomic Pathology and Cytopathology. In 1994 he began a Fellowship in Surgical and Genitourinary Pathology at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN. Following his Fellowship, he joined the staff of the Department of Pathology at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1995. Dr. MacLennan is Board certified in both Urology and Anatomic Pathology in both Canada and the United States. Additionally, he is Board certified in Cytopathology. Dr. MacLennan is Professor of Pathology at Case Western Reserve School of Medicine, with secondary appointments in Urology and Oncology. He is the Division Chief of Anatomic Pathology, the Director of the Human Tissue Procurement Facility at University Hospitals of Cleveland, and Director of the Tissue Procurement and Histology Core Facility of the Seidman Cancer Center. Dr. MacLennan has a particular interest in genitourinary pathology. Much of his time is committed to diagnostic surgical pathology and cytopathology. His research has been predominantly clinically oriented, in collaboration with urologists, oncologists and other pathologists, but has also involved collaborations with basic scientists.

From the book reviews:

“Editors V.S. Dogra and G.T. Mac Lennan … aimed to create a textbook that examines radiologic aspects of various urogenital diseases and their corresponding pathological features. … This textbook was based on an original concept which provides the reader with comprehensive information in two important fields, and is highly useful for clinicians. Richly illustrated, with photographs, tables and figures including gross and microscopic features of the diseases, this reference work will be useful for daily practice.” (European Urology Today, July-September, 2014)

“This book certainly fulfills the purpose of presenting the imaging findings of all modalities and the corresponding gross and microscopic pathology all under one cover. It meets the needs of the trainees and practitioners in radiology and urology well. … It is attractive as a reference and review text for all involved in the care of patients with diseases of the kidney, bladder, or urethra, and it belongs on the shelf of the library of every educational institution.” (Bharat Raval, Radiology, Vol. 272 (2), August, 2014)

“This book reviews diseases of the kidneys, ureter, and bladder with an emphasis on the correlation of imaging and pathological findings. … It should benefit practicing radiologists, residents, and fellows with an interest in GU radiology; pathologists and urologists also may find it helpful. … The comprehensive review of disease entities, the clinically oriented coverage, and the excellent image quality make this book an excellent resource for anyone with an interest in GU radiology or pathology.” (Yulia Melenevsky, Doody’s Book Reviews, June, 2013)
