Breast Cancer Imaging
A Multidisciplinary, Multimodality Approach
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 today's multidisciplinary work environment.Table of Contents

"This new book by Marie Tartar, Christopher E. Comstock and Michael S. Kipper is not easily comparable to other textbooks. And it is outstanding...It delivers a multidisciplinary approach, most importantly, from a clinical point of view. In my opinion, this new concept is the logical answer to a widespread specialization of radiologists. Besides the familiarity with the imaging modalities used in our own subspecialty, we have to have knowledge about the relevant strengths and weaknesses of the techniques used in other fields of radiology." - Schueller G.
