About this book

Introduction

Breast Imaging Review: A Quick Guide to Essential Diagnoses serves as a quick review of essential radiology findings for interpreting multimodality images of the breast. The book includes 92 easy-to-read cases presenting common diagnoses, with over 360 high-quality figures encompassing mammography, ultrasound, MRI, and PET images. Also included are concise pearls covering the basics of interventional breast procedures, such as MRI-guided breast biopsy, galactography, and ultrasound-guided cyst aspirations, along with high yield facts vital to the practice of breast imaging.

Co-authored by Drs. Biren A. Shah, Gina M. Fundaro, and Sabala Mandava, this book successfully integrates a comprehensive array of images, diagnoses, and discussion points into a quickly reviewable format. Breast Imaging Review is a valuable resource for radiology residents preparing to take the oral boards, as well as fellows and practicing radiologists interested in reviewing the basics of breast imaging interpretation and interventional procedures.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book is beautifully illustrated and would make a good shelf reference book in a radiology department. … In summary, this is a well-illustrated book with a good mix of benign, malignant and unusual cases of breast pathology. … teaching departments could usefully employ the illustrations and cases in this book, in conjunction with tutorials and individual teaching, in preparation for the FRCR.” (Penelope Gordon, RAD Magazine, March, 2011)

“Book was designed to be a concise review for residents preparing for oral board examinations and contains useful illustrations of mammography, breast ultrasound, and breast MRI. … this user-friendly case-based book is a helpful resource for residents and fellows in training or preparing for the oral board examinations. Medical students and technologists interested in reviewing the basics of breast imaging may also find the book useful. It successfully integrates a comprehensive array of images, diagnoses, and discussion points into a quickly reviewable format … .” (Selin Carkaci and Wei Tse Yang, The Journal of Nuclear Medicine, Vol. 52 (2), February, 2011)

“This book … targets the radiologists-in-training preparing for their oral Board exam in the USA. … this book is recommended for trainees in radiology who will approach the difficulties of mammography, not only in view of an examination, but also on practical diagnostic grounds. As well it will be useful for grownups and experts and it should be kept on hand in every mammography diagnostic unit.” (Giampiero Beluffi, La Radiologia Medica, Vol. 116, 2011)
