Taking anatomy and pathology as its starting points, this book presenst radiographic diagnosis of the breast as plainly and clearly as possible, the accent lying rather on instruction than on the comprehensiveness of a reference work. Taking histopathology as its starting point, this book explains the mammographic signs in order to strengthen the statement made by the mammography, particularly in the diagnosis of carcinoma, which is the central concern of this book. Further-reaching techniques such as transcutaneous puncture methods, ultrasound and MRI are incorporated into the examination sequence. A separate chapter is devoted to mammographic screening for breast cancer; for even today only quality-assured mammographic screening can reduce fatalities due to breast cancer.
