Biopsy Interpretation of the Prostate focuses on the practical, need-to-know information regarding the diagnosis and prognosis of prostate cancer obtained on biopsy. Advances in surgical techniques have led to an increased number of prostate biopsies being performed. This foundation book for the Biopsy Interpretation series provides detailed text with extensive photographs on the diagnosis of the full range of benign and malignant prostatic entities that would be seen on prostate biopsy.
‘Effectively builds on traditional knowledge-literally beginning with the largely passé art of digital rectal examination and ending with en vogue aids to computerized reporting.’
‘Several anatomical observations that deserve to be more widely recognized are communicated (e.g. Adenosis preferentially occurs within the transition zone…and is more frequently seen on transurethral resection of prostate…than on needle biopsy”)’
‘The text conveys numerous helpful hints on reporting’
‘Candidly addresses the limitations of immunohistochemistry’
‘A masterly work and quite likely to emerge as the jewel in the crown of Wolters Kluwer’s Biopsy Interpretation Series.’Syed A. Hoda, MD and Paula S. Ginter, MD, American Journal of Clinical Pathology, 2015, 143:462-463
