This volume provides up-to-date information on the diagnosis and treatment of carcinoma of the bladder and will appeal to all physicians concerned with this field. Advances in molecular genetics that are of importance to clinical practice are discussed in depth. Progress in both imaging and nonimaging modalities is well documented and critically evaluated in a manner that will prove invaluable for practicing uro-oncologists. Furthermore, the management of patients with superficial, muscle-invasive, and advanced disease is discussed, and new treatment results presented. The numerous illustrations and tables will serve to assist the reader in understanding the presented data
