Overview

Breast Implant Imaging is the first definitive reference on the use of MR imaging, ultrasound, and mammography to detect breast implant failure. The book details the capabilities and limitations of each modality, the imaging features of various implant types, the signs of implant rupture and soft-tissue silicone, and the pitfalls and artifacts encountered. Coverage includes a chapter on breast cancer imaging in patients who have had implants or silicone fluid injections. More than 600 illustrations complement the text.

A bound-in CD-ROM contains over 300 images not found in the book. Included on the CD are a searchable breast implant catalogue, color versions of eleven color-critical black-and-white images found in the book, and AVI movie files of MR imaging studies from the book.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Loren C. Macey, M.D.(University of Colorado Health Sciences Center)
Description: This is a comprehensive book covering all aspects of the imaging of breast implants.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a definitive reference on the subject of breast augmentation, breast implants, and their imaging characteristics.
Audience: The book was designed to assist radiologists and surgeons with the complex imaging-related and clinical evaluation of the augmented breast as well as breast implant failure. It will also be of interest to referring physicians who need to know which patients could benefit from an imaging study. Patients with questions regarding implant complications as well as attorneys involved with breast implant litigation will also find this book helpful.
Features: This book has a complete compendium of the classification and history of breast implants, clinical evaluation of the symptomatic patient, mechanisms of implant failure, imaging characteristics, as well as effect on breast cancer detection, with extensive examples and references. The authors also provide logical algorithms for evaluating the augmented breast with mammography, MRI and ultrasound. The clinical and imaging aspects of implant failure are thoroughly described and illustrated with quality images. The CD-ROM supplement includes a breast implant catalogue, special color images, AVI's, and images of early breast implants (pre-silicone era) as well as silicone and current implants. References and large scale studies of local and systemic complications are thoroughly reviewed.
Assessment: This book is an essential reference providing the necessary knowledge to solve the complicated issues involving the symptomatic patient with augmented breasts that many breast imagers and surgeons face. It is the most comprehensive reference on the subject, with data assembled by two imagers with an extensive combined experience of imaging the augmented breast. The supplemental CD-ROM with the breast implant catalogue as well as detailed color images referred to in the text and AVI's alone is worth the price of the book.

    Encyclopedia of Breast Implant information

    For any serious attorney or physician who works with breast implant issues, this is the book (and CD) for you. Two of my recent clients who are claimants in the pending Dow Corning Settlement will be very happy that I purchased this book and CD. In only 10 minutes I was able to identify the manufacture of my clients' breast implants down to the make, model and year. The imaging is outstanding. This book is the only reliable source for plastic surgeons to properly identify explanted implants (identification necessary for participation in the Dow Corning Settlement). Radiologists need this reference when dealing with breast implant imaging. Enough cannot be said about this work! Outstanding! It is a masterpiece of well over 12,000 hours of meticulous study and research... Doctors Middleton & McNamara you should get an award for this.
