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
  • Three new chapters on the use of MRI and PET in breast
  • 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.
