The report summarizes progress towards using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopic imaging for prostate pathology. The aim of the work is to enable histopathologic recognition without the use of human input or stains. The major accomplishments are : 1. Optimization of experimental parameters for spectroscopic imaging experiments. The optimization provides an understanding of the classification process and allows ~40 fold decrease in data acquisition time. 2. Classification of prostate histology using Genetic Algorithms. The work explicitly identifies spectroscopic biomarkers needed to classify tissue correctly. 3. A new method is introduced to reduce noise by nearly an order of magnitude. The method is based on post-processing to reduce non-correlated signals in images using the covariance of the recorded data. The method enables a ~7 fold higher signal to noise ratio, which translates into a 50-fold faster data acquisition rate.

Prostate Pathology concentrates on the salient H&E histopathology of each entity discussed with brief descriptors of the clinical features, differential diagnosis, and relevant literature references for each entity. The book features a bulleted format with H&E illustrations to match histopathologic criteria. Helpful ancillary tests, in particular, appropriate immunohistochemical panels are also summarized. Prostate Pathology provides a synopsis of all common prostate entities and covers non-neoplastic conditions, including description of normal structures, premalignant conditions and prostate carcinoma, and mesenchymal, hemotopoietic and secondary tumors. The book provides a handy summary and quick reference guide for pathology residents and will serve as a "portable refresher course" or MOC review tool for the more experienced pathologist. Prostate Pathology features: High-yield diagnostic summary and review in surgical pathology for residents, fellows, practicing surgical pathologists preparing for recertification Well illustrated with over 200 high quality color images Concise, bullet-point format for quick reference and easy review Key references included directing reader to recent literature and further detail

Handbook of Endourology contains five focused, review-oriented volumes that are ideal for students and clinicians looking for a comprehensive review rather than a whole course. Each volume is easily accessible through eBook format. Topics covered review both the endourological diagnosis and treatment of prostate, urethral, urinary bladder, upper urinary tract, and renal pathology. All chapters describe the most recent techniques, review the latest results, and analyze the most modern technologies. In the past ten years, the field of endourology has expanded beyond the urinary tract to include all urologic minimally invasive surgical procedures. Recent advancements in robotic and laparoscopic bladder surgery make this one of the fastest moving fields in medicine. As current textbooks are too time-consuming for busy urologists or trainees who also need to learn other areas of urology, this collection provides quick references and over 4000 images that are appropriate for fellows as well as those teaching in the field. Offers review content for urologists in training and “refresher” content for experts in endourology Explores new surgical techniques and technology through review-level content and extensive images of pathologies Includes over 500 images per volume; images taken from more than 4000 endourologic procedures performed annually at the editor’s hospital

A concise and updated review of prostate cancer pathologic diagnosis with emphasis on practical issues and recent developments in the field. Each chapter addresses the basic diagnostic features, differential diagnoses, pitfalls and ways to resolve the problem. Additionally, a brief introduction of prostate cancer screening, clinical management and treatment are summarized. Recent development of immunohistochemistry, molecular testing in the diagnosis, prognosis and treatment are also reviewed. Finally, current knowledge of molecular alteration of prostate cancer carcinogenesis and impact in diagnosis and treatment are discussed.

Written expressly for the surgical pathologist, the pathology resi-dent and the urologic surgeon, this volume describes the histopathologic appearances of diseases affecting the prostate and the seminal vesicles. The introductory chapter includes a dis-cussion on the role and limitations of immunohistochemistry and fine needle aspiration in the diagnosis of prostatic carcinoma. In the pathologic descriptions the main emphasis is placed on microscopic differential diagnosis. Many conditions are discussed including pro-static calculi, benign nodular hyperplasia, tumors of prostatic urethra, therapy-induced changes, and rare carcinomas. Many dia-grams, charts, tables and 221 photomicrographs complement the text.

Modern Surgical Pathology, 2nd Edition presents today's most complete, current, and practical assistance in evaluating and signing out surgical specimens. Nearly 3,000 high-quality color pathology images provide a crystal-clear basis for comparison to any sample you see under the microscope. Clinical, gross, microscopic, immunohistochemical, and molecular genetic features are integrated as appropriate for all tumors and tumor-like lesions, addressing all of the investigative contexts relevant to formulating an accurate diagnosis. Edited by four leading surgical pathologists - Noel Weidner, MD, Richard J. Cote, MD, Saul Suster, MD and Lawrence M. Weiss, MD - with contributions from more than 70 other experts, Modern Surgical Pathology, 2nd Edition delivers the well-rounded, well-organized, richly illustrated, user-friendly guidance you need to efficiently arrive at confident diagnoses for even the most challenging lesions. Contributions from many leading surgical pathologists give you well-rounded, expert answers to any question that you may face. Clinical, gross, microscopic, immunohistochemical, and molecular genetic features are correlated as appropriate for every type of surgical pathology specimen, addressing all of the investigative contexts relevant to formulating an accurate diagnosis and thereby ensuring a completely accurate surgical report. Nearly 3,000 brand-new, high-quality color pathology images provide a crystal-clear basis for comparison to any specimen you see under the microscope. A completely rewritten section on the female reproductive tract offers many more illustrations of common entities to help you more easily distinguish between tumors and tumor-like lesions. Expanded coverage of non-neoplastic diseases and disorders makes it easier to recognize benign conditions that can mimic malignancy. The latest classification schemes and criteria for malignancy, incorporated throughout, enable you to include the most current gradings in your reports. A new, more consistent organization explores anatomy/histology, gross and microscopic appearance, adjunct techniques, diagnosis, and differential diagnosis for each neoplastic or non-neoplastic lesion, facilitating rapid consultation in the reporting room. An increased number of differential diagnosis and classification tables expedite diagnosis.
