Digital mammography has many advantages over film-screen mammography, including faster acquisition, easier storage and easier retrieval of images. Written by expert radiologists and physicists, Digital Mammography: A Practical Approach compares digital mammography to conventional film-screen mammography, reviews clinical cases and explores newer modalities. Key topics include: • Digital detectors • Monitors • Image acquisition • Image storage, retrieval and transfer • Image interpretation and efficacy • Artifacts • A comparison of commercially available systems • Mobile digital mammography. An image atlas and sections on digital tomosynthesis and computed tomography of the breast enhance the text. Digital Mammography: A Practical Approach melds the worlds of clinical radiology and physics in an easy-to-understand, practical resource. A valuable addition to the shelf of radiologists, radiologic technicians, practising medical physicists and mammography technologists; and any practitioners developing and expanding digital mammography programs.
- Includes clinical cases to enable readers to learn from the experience of others
- Practical information on every aspect of the technique aids in organizing and executing a digital mammography program
- Features current and emerging information on digital mammography and the new technique, digital tomosynthesis
