Completely revised and updated, the third edition of Dr. Kirby's highly acclaimed An Atlas of Prostatic Diseases on CD-ROM focuses on new therapies and management techniques for men suffering from prostatic diseases. This CD-ROM provides an exceptional collection of images in a convenient electronic format with images that are fully searchable and downloadable. Presenting succinct descriptions in an easily accessible format, the CD covers the causes, diagnosis, and staging of prostate cancer, benign prostatic hyperplasia, and prostatitis and includes additional video clips not in the book. The sections on treatment have been enhanced by the addition of algorithms that summarize the decision-making process.
