About this book

This book offers a single publication to be utilised comprehensively as a reference manual within current mammographic clinical practice for use by assistant practitioners and practitioners as well as trainees in radiography and related disciplines.

In recent years mammographic clinical practice and technology have evolved rapidly and become increasingly sophisticated, this book will cover these issues. The public feel increasingly empowered to ‘have a say’ in their care and expectations of their mammography experience is high. Consequently a well-trained, well-informed practitioner is of paramount importance in clinical practice today.

This book addresses patient/client-related issues in the form of psychological and emotional support they may require. This will enable the reader to gain insight into the patient/client perspective and thereby assist in meeting their needs.

Reviews

“This is a timely publication, meeting a need for a comprehensive, detailed and easy to read mammography textbook. … This book would be a useful addition to any breast imaging unit, offering a helpful resource to practitioners across all professional groups and at all levels of experience. Its prime target audience is probably that of radiographer or assistant practitioner undertaking specific qualifications in mammography. … I would highly recommend this textbook as a useful resource for a wide audience.” (Judi Curtis, RAD Magazine, October, 2015)
