Comprehensive visual guide emphasizing a multimodality approach to breast cancer diagnosis
Praise for the previous edition:
Well organised and beautifully illustrated…A good book for trainee breast radiologists and radiographers…[and] an extremely useful reference textbook for more experienced practitioners.–RAD Magazine
The second edition of this generously illustrated case-based reference provides a systematic visual collection of pathologic entities and a detailed assessment of how to optimize sonographic technique as well as how to approach the integration of mammography, sonography, MRI and PET/CT in breast cancer diagnosis. The book begins with a focus on teaching practical methods to analyze and incorporate mammographic, sonographic, and magnetic resonance findings in the clinical setting. The closing chapters are devoted to illustrating the applications of PET as demonstrated by specific clinical cases.
Features of the second edition:
- Emphasis on the importance of high-resolution sonography
- Three new chapters on the use of MRI and PET in breast imaging
- Numerous new case studies — including helpful pearls and pitfalls — that focus on common and uncommon examples of metastatic and non-metastatic disease
- Charts and outlines that provide rapid reference for the clinical workup of a lesion
- More than 800 images that help identify both mammographic and sonographic abnormalities
This thorough reference is ideal for radiologists, mammographers, oncologists, gynecologists and all clinicians looking to broaden their visual sonographic experience. Its user-friendly format makes it a handy text for radiology residents in breast rotations.
