"Throughout the book are numerous, high-quality radiographic, gross, and pathologic images. Each image is carefully annotated to highlight the elements that are most diagnostically significant. In addition to covering the clinicopathologic features of breast lesions, the book includes chapters on basic breast radiology and the surgical approach to breast lesions. These chapters are an excellent addition and provide pathologists a thorough understanding of the clinical diagnosis and management of breast lesions. This book features the classic benefits of all Expert Consult titles, which include an online version of the print book with larger images and fully searchable text."- Sapna Amin, MD (University of Kansas Medical Center) Doody Review Services
