Editorial Reviews

Anne M. Kennedy
This review of breast imaging is in note form, listing key facts in each of the areas covered. The book is intended to serve as an ""introduction, overview and review of breast imaging"" targeted to radiology residents. This is a small, reasonably priced text covering the key areas in breast imaging. It serves as a succinct introduction and concise pre-boards review. The author has targeted radiology residents, but many surgery residents would benefit from reading it. It is also likely to be useful as a quick reference of unusual conditions for the practicing radiologist. The book is liberally illustrated with high-quality reproductions of mammograms and ultrasound images. The table of contents is excellent, as is the index. The book is visually pleasing and surprisingly easy to read, given the note-style format. There are many large review texts on breast imaging currently available. The beauty of this book is that it packs an enormous amount of useful information into a portable package. The images used to demonstrate the key points are of high quality, with good figure legends. At this price, I would recommend that residents purchase it. Practicing radiologists will find a copy at the alternator a useful source of information on the rarer conditions that affect the breast.

A reference for radiologists that serves as an introduction and overview of performing and interpreting breast imaging studies. Cardenosa, a radiologist in North Carolina, covers regulatory issues, quality control, technical considerations, screening mammography, diagnostic mammography, ultrasound, issues related to specific parts of the breast, the male breast, interventional procedures, and documentation and the mammographic report. (For the second edition, she opted not to include some more experimental topics, including digital mammography and scintigraphy.) Includes many images of various conditions. Annotation c.

From The Critics
Reviewer: Christine M Bliven, MD (University of Colorado Health Sciences Center)
Description: This soft cover book provides an overview of the basics of mammography. The text is bulleted, with one to five pages dedicated to each subject. This second edition updates the first published in 1997.
Purpose: The book is intended to serve as "an introduction, overview, and review" of breast imaging, predominantly film-screen mammography, and as a quick reference. As breast imaging is a significant component of many radiologists' practices, this information is crucial. The text meets its objectives admirably.
Audience: The primary intended audience for the text is radiology residents. The book would also be useful for practicing physicians who are not breast imaging subspecialists. Dr. Cardenosa is a very credible authority in breast imaging.
Features: "The text focuses primarily on mammography, with discussion of breast ultrasound and interventional procedures as well. It discusses the basics of mammography, including screening and diagnostic exams and progresses to a discussion of problem-solving maneuvers in the workup of mammographic abnormalities. The augmented section on triangulation will be especially useful for radiology residents. Specific pathologic conditions are discussed succintly. Numerous high-quality illustrations and relevant diagrams throughout the book support the text. The section on interventional procedures is very well-written, and has been expanded since the first edition. It describes each procedure step-by-step, and includes pitfalls and many illustrations. Dr. Cardenosa has included much more information in the section on regulatory issues, including the Mammography Quality Standards Act and the American College of Radiology Accreditation Program. The Quality Control section is very thorough as well. Though not as interesting to most radiologists as the imaging itself, this information is vital, and is explained in a clear and concise manner. The first edition included brief discussions of newer technologies, including MR, sentinel node biopsy, and computer-aided diagnosis. These topics are not part of the second edition. The book is user-friendly; the expanded format of the table of contents allows the reader to find a specific topic within seconds. There is a refreshing lack of excess verbiage. "
Assessment: I highly recommend this book. The affordability and ease of transport are key for residents. It is a concise, thorough review of mammography, and would be easy to read during a rotation. The information updated since the first edition is quite useful. This would be a valuable addition to the library of any resident or practicing general radiologist involved in breast imaging.
