Widespread use of mammography results in detection of small cancers with favorable prognosis, as well as an array of indeterminate lesions, the majority of which turn out to be histologically benign. This book gives a detailed account of the radiology and pathology of screening-detected lesions, with discussion of risk assessment, to assist clinicians in the follow-up of their patients. Related lesions are dealt with in consecutive chapters, giving the reader an opportunity for comparison. The book is well illustrated with radiological and pathological correlation of mostly screening-detected images including mucocele-like lesions and columnar lesions. All professionals who care for patients with breast disease, such as breast surgeons, radiologists, pathologists and breast care nurses, will find the book highly useful for the management of patients with benign or indeterminate breast lesions in a multidisciplinary setting.
This first of two volumes provides and in-depth account of breast disease characteristics, imaging and diagnosis. Covering from breast anatomy and tumor biology to benign and malignant lesions this is an indispensable companion for breast specialists, medical oncologists, radiologists and pathologists. The book is organised in themed parts exploring topics such as epidemiology, risk factors, genetic biomarkers, pathological evaluation of tumors and biopsy techniques. With a high number of colored illustrations and edited by highly experienced clinicians, this work enables readers to gain an interdisciplinary perspective on breast diseases. Contributions from an international team of experts present invaluable insight into pathological and epidemiological aspects of breast disease. Covering both theoretical and practical aspects of breast cancer this is a highly informative and carefully presented book which will appeal to an international audience of breast cancer practitioners.
Designed in a small-format for practical reading and point-of-care setting use, this work presents the most up-to-date concepts on breast diseases. The main objective of this book is to propagate current knowledge of the most frequent breast diseases, being a quick reference, evidence-based manual covering the major clinical scenarios in mastology. The essence of the work can be summarized in the following sentence: "access to maximum content in the least amount of time.” The book contains data that will allow readers to understand and treat patients with different complaints and diseases. Each chapter presents a flow chart and a summary of the five major publications on the subject. This is unique in comparison with other books in this medical specialty. Developed by a team of international expert specialists who deal with breast pathologies on a daily basis, the book also includes additional contributions from experienced, renowned professionals in interdisciplinary specialties related to the main area. This book will be of interest to physicians who deal with breast diseases and wish to improve their knowledge through exposure to state-of-the-art data and best practices advice. It is also directed to medical students and residents in training within mastology.

Integrating the Findings of Clinical Presentation, Mammography, and Ultrasound
Author: Volker Barth
This lavishly illustrated atlas provides radiologists with essential information for the differential diagnosis of breast diseases on the basis of clinical presentation, mammography, and ultrasound. The book begins with chapters on tumor biology, prognostic factors, and histology. The authors then provide a thorough evaluation of various methods for early detection and accurate diagnosis, including analog and digital mammography, ultrasound, MR imaging, PET/CT, and interventional procedures. They discuss in detail the strengths and limitations of each imaging modality, aspects of quality control, test intervals, peri- and postoperative management principles, and follow-up care.Highlights: Presentation of difficult cases that effectively demonstrate the diagnostic hurdles and forensic pitfalls in breast diagnosis Special sections on breast cancer in men and young women, with discussion of women who are pregnant or lactating Color-coded practical tips and clinical notes for optimal comprehension of the material Extensive Q&A sections for self-testing in two major chapters More than 1,700 high-quality illustrations, including clinical color photographs, ultrasound images, and mammograms I believe that this outstanding modern book will be highly valued by radiologists, oncologists, surgeons and many other specialists.British Journal of RadiologyEvery page contains an opportunity to increase the user's knowledge,.Radiologic Technology

Studies of benign and malignant breast cancer comprise the contents of these proceedings. Papers cover research in mastology such as benign breast changes, and breast cancer diagnosis and epidemiology. Topics such as prognosis, follow-up and recovery of breast cancer patients are included.
In 2002, Lippincott published the Manual of Breast Diseases, edited by Professor Ismail Jatoi. The current book, Management of Breast Diseases, is an adaptation of that manual, with Professor Manfred Kaufmann of the Goethe-University of Frankfurt serving as co-editor. Most of the chapters from the original manual have been either extensively revised or discarded, and several new chapters added. This text contains more material than the original manual, but it is still intended as a basic guide for the wide spectrum of clinicians (surgeons, gynecologists, oncologists, radiation onco- gists, internists, general practitioners) who treat breast diseases, both benign and malignant. To compile this text, we assembled experts from throughout the world. Thus, this text provides not only a broad overview of breast diseases, but also highlights diff- ent perspectives from different parts of the world. Yet, it is worth noting that the management of breast cancer is now largely predicated on evidence-based medicine. Several large, randomized prospective trials have demonstrated the ef? cacy of breast cancer screening and chemoprevention. Other large trials have addressed the impact of systemic therapy, radiotherapy, and variations in local therapy on breast cancer mortality. Many of these landmark trials are discussed in this text, and they clearly have had a bene? cial effect. Indeed, since about 1990, breast cancer mortality rates have declined substantially in most industrialized countries, and this trend is expected to continue in the years ahead.
An authoritative and comprehensive overview of all aspects of the diagnosis of breast diseases. Employing an integrated approach, all modern imaging modalities are described and their clinical usefulness critically validated, forming an aid for the clinician in the selection and evaluation of the various imaging methods in specific settings. Due attention is given to new aspects of interpretation of mammographic signs that are of particular interest for primary breast cancer diagnosis. The book also includes detailed information on the evaluation of the postoperative breast and on breast cancer screening by mammography.
Featuring over 1,500 mammographic images, this atlas is a comprehensive guide to interpreting mammograms. It presents the full spectrum of manifestations of breast diseases, as well as cases involving the postsurgical and augmented breast. Chapters are organized according to the pattern seen on the mammogram to develop readers' pattern recognition skills and to allow quick and complete definition of etiologies and clinical implications for a particular finding. This edition includes new chapters on the augmented breast, the role of ultrasound and MRI in breast imaging, and imaging-guided breast interventions. The terminology of the BI-RADS® lexicon is used throughout.
