Practical Breast Pathology
This reference provides the information which the non-pathologist needs to know in order to understand a histologic diagnosis of breast tissue. Tibor Tot (pathology and clinical cytology) and Laszlo Tabar (mammography) of Falun Central Hospital in Sweden, and Peter B. Dean (diagnostic radiology, University Central Hospital in Turku, Finland) present ten chapters that emphasize mammographic-pathologic correlation in order to assist in the implementation of interdisciplinary breast teamwork. Topics include differentiation between normal breast tissue and fibrocystic change, general morphology of lesions, hyperplastic changes with and without atypia, DCIS, the most usual types of invasive breast carcinoma, common benign lesions and their borderline and malignant counterparts, fine-needle aspiration or core biopsy, the postoperative work-up, assessment of the most important prognostic factors, and case demonstrations. Extensively illustrated with color images. Annotation copyrighted by Book News Inc., Portland, OR.
