Overview

Digital mammography has many advantages over film-screen mammography, including faster acquisition, easier storage and easier retrieval of images. Written by expert radiologists and physicists, Digital Mammography: A Practical Approach compares digital mammography to conventional film-screen mammography, reviews clinical cases and explores newer modalities. Key topics include: • Digital detectors • Monitors • Image acquisition • Image storage, retrieval and transfer • Image interpretation and efficacy • Artifacts • A comparison of commercially available systems • Mobile digital mammography. An image atlas and sections on digital tomosynthesis and computed tomography of the breast enhance the text. Digital Mammography: A Practical Approach melds the worlds of clinical radiology and physics in an easy-to-understand, practical resource. A valuable addition to the shelf of radiologists, radiologic technicians, practising medical physicists and mammography technologists; and any practitioners developing and expanding digital mammography programs.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Bennett S. Greenspan, MD, MS (Georgia Regents University)
Description: This book describes the physical basis of digital mammography in addition to discussing its clinical aspects, and presents 34 clinical cases for review and discussion.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide information to practicing radiologists and medical physicists about the full range of digital mammography. The book includes information on the physical basis of digital mammography along with illustrative clinical cases.
Audience: It is written for practicing radiologists and practicing medical physicists, but it also would be of interest to residents and fellows in breast imaging and graduate students in medical physics.
Features: The book discusses detectors for digital mammography, image acquisition, processing and display, and PACS, storage, and archiving of digital images. It discusses factors in image interpretation and artifacts, and presents clinical cases with teaching points. The book also has a chapter on breast tomosynthesis and another on breast CT. There is also a section comparing commercially available systems. The images throughout the book are of high quality. While it does not represent a true shortcoming, a future edition should include breast MRI as well as positron emission mammography.
Assessment: This is a high quality book that describes physical principles of digital mammography, discusses its clinical utility and efficacy, and presents clinical cases with teaching points. It fills a niche, providing a substantial amount of information on the physical basis of digital mammography combined with clinical information, and should prove to be a useful resource.
