The thoroughly revised and expanded 4th edition of the bestselling Teaching
Atlas of Mammography is still the only book that offers a comparison of unique
imaging findings with the corresponding large thin section and subgross, large
thick section (3D) histology. This approach is the basis for a profound understanding
of breast imaging because it is a direct and effective method of teaching differential
diagnosis of benign and malignant breast diseases.
The new edition contains a multitude of new cases. Based on 40 years of experience, the superbly illustrated cases often show long-term follow-up of patients over a period of up to 25 years.
Rather than starting with the diagnosis and demonstrating typical findings, the approach of this Atlas is to teach the reader how to analyze the image and reach the correct diagnosis through proper evaluation of the mammographic signs. Prerequisites for the perception and evaluation of the mammographic findings are optimum technique, knowledge of anatomy, and understanding of the pathological processes leading to the mammographic appearances.
