About this book
This superbly illustrated practical guide is an excellent resource on all aspects of breast MRI for practicing radiologists, oncologists, and surgeons, as well as residents and fellows. Drs. Elizabeth Morris and Laura Liberman, two experts in the field from the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, have collaborated with colleagues from their institution and selected medical centers to share their expertise. Introductory chapters are devoted to diagnosis and cover the basics of performing breast MRI exams, setting up a breast MRI program, and understanding clinical indications. Additional chapters discuss breast interventional procedures including MRI-guided needle localization, MRI-guided biopsy, and percutaneous ablation of breast cancer; MRI of breast implants; and the surgeon’s perspective on the use of breast MRI. A comprehensive diagnostic atlas with hundreds of images completes the volume and addresses the spectrum of clinical situations, including various carcinomas, special tumor types, and benign histologies. Pitfalls in analysis for readers to recognize are also highlighted in this indispensable text.
