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.
Emphasis on the importance of high-resolution sonography
Three new chapters on the use of MRI and PET in breast imaging
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.

Practical Digital Mammography provides breast imagers with a systematic, problemsolving approach to detecting and assessing the most subtle signs of breast cancer malignancies. The book opens with concise coverage of the fundamentals, including physics, equipment, and normal anatomy. Separate chapters provide straightforward descriptions and clear illustrations of the digital mammographic characteristics of benign and malignant calcifications, masses, asymmetry, and architectural distortion. The author presents the clinical workup of the most difficult mammographic findings and provides recommendations about the techniques for localizing each finding.
With its broad coverage and emphasis on clinical techniques, this book is indispensable for radiologists, residents, and technologists confronting the challenges of a digital mammographic imaging center.
