Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Sonia Stephenson, RTR (Froedtert Hospital)
Description: This book, true to its title, covers all areas of the imaging chain in detail, with the mammographer in mind. A section about patient dose is also included. The book will help mammographers in all aspects of their job: as patient advocate and technical engineer.
Purpose: The purpose is to enhance the mammographer's understanding of the complex imaging chain that occurs during a mammogram. The whys and hows are discussed in detail for each link. The imaging chain is important for each mammographer to clearly understand, especially when one aspect is not functioning properly. The author helps us to better understand how each aspect of the imaging chain depends on the other to function properly. No matter how long you have been performing mammography, you can never know enough about the imaging chain.
Audience: The book is clearly written for the mammographer. All aspects that are important for the mammographer are included. The author's vast knowledge and love of physics is evident in this book. Reading it has deepened my understanding of the world of physics.
Features: This book provides information about why mammography is performed, the physics behind the mammogram, how the mammogram is produced and what constitutes a quality image on a mammogram. The book is in bullet format making it easy to read. Many vignettes about everyday life are included to help deepen understanding. Comparisons are made from mammography equipment to regular x-ray equipment. The differences between manufacturers are also discussed, adding additional insight. Many diagrams are included to aid the reader. Also included is a brief discussion about patient dose during a mammogram to help with patient questions that may arise. The last chapter includes an over view of the MQSA with an outline of the Federal Register.
Assessment: I would recommend all mammographers to read and re-read this book. It is full of important information that can be used for every mammogram that is performed. The author's statement that all mammographers function as engineers is certainly true. We need to know what to do when something is not functioning. Reading this book has deepened my understanding of the physics behind mammography and emphasized how important the mammographer is in the imaging chain.
