Through a case-based approach, this book illustrates the best practices for all facets of breast cancer imaging - from screening of asymptomatic patients to cancer staging, identifying metastases, and assessing efficacy of treatment - in a succinct, practical source. Contributing authors from a wide range of subspecialties provide well-rounded guidance to meet the needs of today₂s multidisciplinary work environment. Presents multidisciplinary discussions on the advantages and/or limitations of all available modalities. Includes advice from leading experts on cross-sectional imaging, breast imaging, and PET/CT, with input from radiation oncology, medical oncology, and breast surgery, to span the complete spectrum of care from screening to diagnosis to treatment, reflecting today₂s team approach to patient care. Covers all imaging modalities to help you correlate disease presentations on mammography, CT, MR, US, and PET images. Offers a very practical, clinical, concise approach to the subject in a case-based format. Provides over 1,000 high-resolution images of disease appearance for comparison with the findings you encounter in your practice.
