Even with the advent of many new radiographic techniques, mammography remains the most important and effective method of breast examination available today. This outstanding guide, using anatomy and pathology as a starting point, gives you clear and accurate instructions on all facets of performing breast mammograms, from proper positioning to analyzing the findings.

In addition to mammography, this teaching guide focuses on the non-radiological aspects of breast carcinoma such as clinical diagnosis, treatment, epidemiology, and risk factors. You'll also learn about screening methods to detect and avoid potential problems.

The instructive nature of this text makes it an excellent resource for students and residents. Radiologists and OB/GYN's who need a quick update or refresher will also appreciate its value. Here is the book that belongs on the shelves of every medical school library, residency program, and specialist's office!
