Overview

MRI is increasingly being used by radiologists to confirm diagnoses and perform operative procedures of the breast. MRI's contrast between soft tissues in the breast is many times greater than that obtained by plain-film mammography. As opposed to x-rays, which are known to cause damage to cellular DNA, the magnetic fields and radiowaves used with MRI are not known to have any long-term biologic effect. MRI of the breast requires intravenous injection of a contrast agent, which helps highlight breast abnormalities. The American Cancer Society has advised women at high risk for breast cancer to have an MRI.
This book, a collaboration between an experienced breast imager and a breast surgeon, contains 100 cases and covers high risk screening, extent of disease evaluation, as well as the full range of benign and malignant tumors found in the breast: DCIS, invasive ductal cancers, and invasive lobule cancers. Rare lesions such as phyllodes, mucinous, liposarcomas, and myotiboblastomas are also covered. Pathologic correlations are included where appropriate. This book has a special emphasis on preoperative planning involving MRI and thus may also appeal to surgical oncologists specializing in breast cancer.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Dana Smetherman, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: The book uses an atlas format to present numerous examples of pathological processes of the breast and their associated imaging features on MRI.
Purpose: The authors intend to share their experience with MRI imaging features of breast carcinoma and, to a lesser extent, benign breast disease.
Audience: Although not specifically stated, the target audience seems to be general radiologists in practice and possibly breast imaging fellows and radiology residents.
Features: The book is composed of numerous cases with limited accompanying text providing generous examples of breast pathology on MRI. The extensive images are its strength. In particular, the abundant cases serve as a very useful reference for the expected imaging findings on invasive and noninvasive breast carcinoma. The atlas would be a great reading room reference for radiologists in practice, especially general radiologists without a broad base of experience with breast MRI. It also would be a good study aid for residents whose programs do not perform a larger number of breast MRIs. It emphasizes the appropriate work-up of breast abnormalities and uses examples of how to use MRI to its greatest advantage in different clinical situations. The proper role of, and indications for, MRI-guided interventional procedures are covered as well, although the book does not include instructions for performing the procedures.
Assessment: This is a valuable reference that offers the benefit of the authors' vast clinical experience in the field of breast MRIs to radiologists in practice and in training. Although there are other atlases that include breast MRI, the conciseness of the written text and the numerous examples of imaging studies make this book a useful addition to the current literature.
