This atlas provides radiologists with essential information for the differential diagnosis of breast diseases on the basis of clinical presentation, mammography, and ultrasound. It begins with chapters on tumor biology, prognostic factors, and histology. The authors then provide a thorough evaluation of various methods for early detection and accurate diagnosis, including analog and digital mammography, ultrasound, MR imaging, PET/CT, and interventional procedures. They discuss in detail the strengths and limitations of each imaging modality, aspects of quality control, test intervals, peri- and postoperative management principles, and follow-up care.
Presentation of difficult cases that effectively demonstrate the diagnostic hurdles and forensic pitfalls in breast diagnosis
Special sections on breast cancer in men and young women, with discussion of women who are pregnant or lactating
Color-coded practical tips and clinical notes for optimal comprehension of the material
Extensive Q&A sections for self-testing in two major chapters
More than 1,700 high-quality illustrations, including clinical color photographs, ultrasound images, and mammograms
“I believe that this outstanding modern book will be highly valued by radiologists, oncologists, surgeons and many other specialists.”—British Journal of Radiology

This fully revised and expanded third edition covers all aspects of modern thoracic radiology, and includes important new sections on computer tomographic signs, interventional radiology of the thorax and the latest developments in cardiac CT and MRI diagnostics, as well as a new chapter on high resolution/thin section CT patterns. The section on diffuse lung disease has been expanded and many new CT illustrations have been added. The book contains comprehensive information on the role of new technologies, including MDCT, in the evaluation of thoracic disease, the role of PET/PET-CT in the thorax, and the expanding roles of MDCT and MRI in evaluation of the heart.
This book serves as a comprehensive guide for integrating point-of-care ultrasound into clinical care. It includes detailed chapters on the use of ultrasound in cardiology, dermatology, obstetrics and gynecology, and pediatrics, as well as for the assessment of the abdomen, musculoskeletal system, eyes, and thorax. Over the last decade, the use of diagnostic, point-of-care ultrasound at the bedside has been widely adopted by healthcare professionals in the United States. This technology has spread into many new areas of clinical medicine and more non-radiologists are seeking training and an up-to-date resource on use of the ultrasound machine. This book provides guidance on how to best approach patients with particular problems, practical guidelines on how to operate the machine and choose probes, descriptions and illustrations that depict the patient’s position and structures that are scanned, and the anatomy and pathophysiology of each area. Practical Point-of-Care Medical Ultrasound is a valuable addition to the library of any resident, fellow, physician, or other healthcare provider who uses ultrasound in a clinical setting.
