"New text that clearly outlines the basics on how to conduct and interpret diagnostic breast images. The study is truly in depth, as it covers the whole topic through illustration and careful discussion. Although the natural audience for this text is Radiology Residents (and practicing Radiologists), it extends well beyond these boundaries: internists, all women's health practitioners and primary care physicians will be well-served." The Electric Review, rev. of the previous ed.
"Should be well received by residents preparing for their board examinations … The author is to be congratulated because she has captured the flux of breast imaging." - AJR, rev. of the previous ed.
