Descripción o resumen: Contributions of the most recent diagnostic innovations such as MRI are compared to established investigations such as US, CT, and standard radiography - the didactic approach is followed in all chapters complimented by illustrative material (over 400 illustrations) - the book provides comprehensive up-to-date information on imaging diagnosis of female pelvic disease. This volume discusses and compares the contribution of the various imaging techniques employed in the diagnosis and assessment of diseases of the female pelvic organs. Particular emphasis is placed on the role of the newer modalities of MRI, CT, and ultrasonography, including color Doppler. Due attention is also given to interventional procedures and to the evaluation of the effectiveness of different therapies. Each chapter includes carefully selected illustrations, providing an extensive repository of material that will be of assistance in the evaluation of patients. 1 Introduction to Benign and Malignant Disease of the Female Pelvis.- 2 Sonography in the Assessment of Benign and Malignant Conditions of the Uterus.- 3 Magnetic Resonance Imaging Versus Ultrasound in the Assessment of Benign Uterine Lesions.- 4 Color Doppler Ultrasound in the Assessment of Benign and Malignant Neoplasms of the Female Pelvis.- 5 Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Cervical Cancer.- 6 Assessment of Endometrial Carcinoma by Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Ultrasound.- 7 Assessment of Therapeutic Response and Recurrence of Malignancies of the Female Pelvis.- 8 Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Invasive Mole.- 9 Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Ovary: Correlation with Ultrasound.- 10 Transrectal Ultrasound in the Assessment of Female Pelvic Malignancies and Recurrent Disease.- 11 Radiology of the Female Bladder, Urethra, and Pelvic Floor.- 12 Hysterosalpingography in the Assessment of Congenital, Inflammatory, and Postsurgical Changes of the Uterus and Fallopian Tubes.- 13 Selective Salpingography and Transcervical Recanalization of Obstructed Fallopian Tubes.- 14 Interventional Radiologic Procedures in the Management of Inflammatory and Neoplastic Conditions in the Female Pelvis.- List of Contributors.
