About this book


With an increasing interest in using ultrasound for the assessment of pelvic floor disorders, Pelvic Floor Ultrasound provides the reader with the knowledge and skills to start utilizing ultrasound imaging. Through case studies and common types of patients, this book helps the reader in diagnosing disorders such as voiding dysfunction, pelvic organ prolapse and fecal incontinence, but also to use ultrasound for urodynamics and pelvic floor physiotherapy.


This simple and concise, patient focused book, is written by authors comprising the three surgical disciplines (urology, colorectal surgery and gynaecology) who commonly manage pelvic floor problems and have subspecialty expertise in pelvic floor imaging.


Pelvic Floor Ultrasound  will be of particular interest to urologists, gynaecologists, colorectal surgeons and radiologists, and will also benefit a wider readership of physiotherapists and trainees in these disciplines.
