About this book

Widespread use of mammography has resulted in detection of small cancers with favorable prognosis, as well as an array of indeterminate lesions, the majority of which turn out to be histologically benign. This book gives a detailed account of the radiology and pathology of screening-detected lesions, with discussion of risk assessment, to assist clinicians in the follow-up of their patients. Related lesions are dealt with in consecutive chapters, giving the reader an opportunity for comparison. The book is well illustrated with radiological and pathological correlation of mostly screening-detected images including mucoecele-like lesions and columnar lesions. Surgeons, radiologists, pathologists and breast care nurses will find the book highly useful for the management of patients with benign or indeterminate breast lesions in a multidisciplinary setting.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The advent of breast screening … now means that the breast team is regularly presented with a variety of benign pathological diagnoses and an understanding of the clinical relevance of these is essential. This text aims to contribute towards this understanding. … Pathological slides are beautifully reproduced in full colour … . a comprehensive text on the pathology and risk assessment of benign breast disease which is well illustrated with pathological slides. … it would represent useful supplementary reading for non-pathologists … ." (Dr. J Litherland, RAD Magazine, July, 2005)

"Catherine Chinyama has made a creditable attempt to bring order to the often confusing field of benign breast disease. … The main focus of the book is on radiologic and pathological findings in benign breast disease … . The book is remarkably well illustrated … . The figures are informative … . The range of benign breast disease covered in the book is broad … . this very useful book will interest any clinician, radiologist, or pathologist who deals with benign breast disease … ." (Pamela J. Goodwin, The New England Journal of Medicine, September, 2004)
