This book provides a unique and comprehensive analysis of the normal anatomy and pathology of the kidney and upper urinary tract from the modern diagnostic imaging point of view. The first part is dedicated to the normal radiological anatomy of the kidney and normal anatomic variants. The second part presents in detail all of the imaging modalities which can be employed to assess the kidney and the upper urinary tract, with careful descriptions of patient preparation, investigation protocols, and principal fields of application of each imaging modality. The entire spectrum of kidney pathologies is then presented with the aid of a large set of images, many of which are in color. The latest innovations in interventional radiology, biopsy procedures, and parametric and molecular imaging are also described. This book should be of great interest to all radiologists, oncologists, and urologists who are involved in the management of kidney pathologies in their daily clinical practice.
