Ultrasound Imaging in Acute and Chronic Kidney Disease Book Review:

Ultrasound imaging techniques are an indispensable complement to physical examination, which is often frustrating, if not useless, for diagnosing kidney problems. The application of ultrasound techniques in clinical routine helps clinicians to rule out, at first glance, some serious pathological conditions and to concentrate on the accurate diagnosis of the patient. Moreover, sonography can extend the spectrum of diagnostic criteria in acute kidney diseases. It makes it possible to determine morphological parameters without potentially toxic contrast media while exploring functional aspects with contrast enhanced or Doppler ultrasound techniques. This publication meets a growing demand for current information among physicians and nurses in the field. With a focus on the daily practice of diagnosing kidney disease, it is an important resource for both beginner and advanced users of ultrasound imaging techniques.

Renal Sonography Book Review:

Renal sonography forms a basic part of routine diagnostic strategy. This textbook summarizes eighteen years of experience in diagnostic ultrasound. We want it to serve as a guide to both imagers and mere consumers of information. That is why we shall emphasize practical advice and diagnostic pitfalls; it is also why we shall often deal with the relations of sonography with other diagnostic procedures, which it may complement or replace, precede or follow, the purpose being to achieve efficiency at low cost. We shall limit our subject matter to the kidney itself and the neighboring retroperitoneal compartments, dealing only briefly with the lower urinary tract, which requires specialized procedures. We devoted considerable space to renal sonography in our book Clinical Atlas of Ultrasonic Radiography, published in 1973. Since then, nothing has changed and everything has changed. Nothing, because even then the differential diagnosis between a solid and a cystic mass, the etiologic diagnosis of a nonsecreting kidney, and the positive diagnosis of a traumatic juxtarenal hematoma were quite reliable, making possible drastic reductions in the indications for instrumental roentgenologic examinations. Everything, be cause improved resolution and grey scale imaging (already partially achieved in 1973, thanks to real time) have profoundly refined both anatomic and pathologic ultrasonic studies. And now high resolution real time imaging has revolutionized renal examination techniques, whereas Doppler is entering routine ultrasonic diagnosis.

Imaging in Nephrology Book Review:

This book is a wide-ranging guide to current and emerging applications of ultrasonography within nephrology that aims to provide readers with a sound understanding of the rationale for and the use of ultrasound techniques in various disease settings, including, for example, complications following renal transplantation, arteriovenous fistulas, renal artery stenosis, nonstenotic renal artery pathology, renal vein pathology, aortic disease, and acute renal failure. Particular emphasis is placed on newer applications, such as those involving elastosonography, contrast-enhanced ultrasonography, and color Doppler imaging. There is no doubt that ultrasound techniques can improve the standard of care in nephrology, from vascular access planning to management of uremic complications. Nevertheless, many nephrologists continue to delegate the performance of ultrasonography to radiologists or other colleagues, which is especially regrettable given the advent of affordable, portable ultrasound scanners. This book will be of value for all clinicians interested in the role of ultrasound techniques in nephrology and will be especially useful for nephrologists seeking to incorporate ultrasonography into their practice. .

Contrast Enhanced Ultrasound in Clinical Practice Book Review:

The value of ultrasound contrast agents (USCA) in everyday clinical practice depends on the pharmacokinetics, the signal processing, and the contrast-specific imaging modalities. Second-generation USCA, are blood pool agents that do not leak into the organ tissue to be examined but remain in the intravascular compartment increasing the Doppler signal amplitude during their dynamic vascular phase. Taking advantage of the stability of their microbubbles, they can withstand the acoustic pressure of insonation much better than first-generation contrast media, which results in an increased half-life of the agent and, consequently, in a prolonged diagnostic window. Concomitant with the improvement of contrast agents, different contrast-specific imaging modalities have been developed which, used in combination with USCA and a low mechanical index, allow continuous real-time grey-scale imaging. These recent technical improvements have opened new possibilities in the use of USCA in a variety of indications. Written by internationally renowned experts, the contributions gathered in this book give an overview of current and possible future new applications of USCA in routine and clinical practice.

Oxford Textbook of Clinical Nephrology Book Review:

The first edition of the Oxford Textbook of Clinical Nephrology established itself as the leading clinical reference text for practicing nephrologists worldwide. The second edition comes five years later, during which time there have been significant advances in the understanding of the pathogenesis of renal disease and in therapy. Placing existing treatment on a firm scientific basis or stopping ineffective or dangerous treatment is as important as introducing proven new therapies, and all the contributors have taken this fully into account. During the development of the second edition all the first edition chapters were critically reviewed by practicing nephrologists and their suggestions have been incorporated to make the text even more practically useful and logically arranged. Expert topic editors for pediatrics, pathology, physiology and pharmacology have checked all relevant sections from their own perspective. This edition is the only major textbook of nephrology to be printed in full colour throughout. Reproduction of the histological and clinical illustrations in their natural colours reveals their true significance, and there are numerous new colour illustrations. There are new chapters on: Imaging tactics - a rationale; Structural basis of glomerular function; Symptomless patient with abnormal urine; Immunotactoid (fibrillary) nephritis; Mechanisms of interstitial disease; and Host factors in the pathogenesis of urinary tract infection. The sections on acute and chronic renal failure have been reorganized with new chapters on the Epidemiology of acute renal failure, Dialysis and haemoperfusion treatment in acute poisoning, and Genesis of the uraemic syndrome. In addition the chapter on Gastrointestinal effects in chronic renal failure includes a new discussion of the various forms of hepatitis. A new section on Acute renal failure in special settings includes new chapters on pregnancy, tropical illness, and the elderly. In the inherited diseases section there is a new chapter on Inherited disorders of purine metabolism, and in the structural diseases section a new chapter on Medullary sponge kidney. The section on malignant disease has new chapters on Tumours of the bladder, and Tumours of the prostate. The result is an outstanding up- to-date, international clinical text which no clinical nephrologist can afford to be without.
