Practical Digital Mammography provides breast imagers with a systematic, problem-solving approach to detecting and assessing the most subtle signs of breast cancer malignancies. The book opens with concise coverage of the fundamentals, including physics, equipment, and normal anatomy. Separate chapters provide straightforward descriptions and clear illustrations of the digital mammographic characteristics of benign and malignant calcifications, masses, asymmetry, and architectural distortion. The author presents the clinical workup of the most difficult mammographic findings and provides recommendations about the optimizing the techniques for localizing each finding.


  • 103 illustrated cases help readers gain a firm understanding of how to interpret digital mammographic findings
  • Summary tables provide succinct descriptions of digital mammographic findings correlated to the American College of Radiology's BI-RAD assessment categories
  • Practical discussion of the advantages of digital mammography over screen-film techniques and equipment enables readers to compare technologies and systems
  • Pearls and Pitfalls review key points and considerations With its broad coverage and emphasis on clinical techniques, this book is indispensable for radiologists, residents, and technologists confronting the challenges of a digital mammographic imaging center.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
This concise textbook covers the fundamentals of digital mammography with an emphasis on image analysis...chapters are organized by morphology and are illustrated by case studies with clear photographs. Each case study has a succinct and easy-to-understand description of radiologic findings and diagnosis and concludes with a Pearls and Pitfalls bulleted list...The case studies not only will help radiologists become familiar with assessing digital mammograms, but they also will help mammographers build their breast pathology knowledge.—Radiologic TechnologyA practical approach to digital mammography...a welcome addition to the breast imaging field...clinically relevant chapters...well written in an easy-to-comprehend manner...pertinent and up-to-date references...a concise, informative, and practical guide.—American Journal of Roentgenology...A practical book that provides information about digital mammographic physics and equipment which will allow one to intelligently compare technologies and systems.— ETDE - Energy Database

Reviewer: Dana Smetherman, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This book serves as a guide to radiologists who are making the transition from the analog to the digital realm in mammography. It includes narrative chapters outlining the basics of digital mammography, including the physics involved, and an extensive atlas of pathologic processes as they appear on digital mammograms.
Purpose: The author intends the book to be used to help breast imagers understand the value of digital mammography. Certainly, in this era where the vast majority of radiologists who do breast imaging have either recently incorporated digital mammography into their practices or are contemplating making this transition, these objectives are worthwhile. The book meets these objectives, though it is quite a narrow niche.
Audience: Although primarily intended for practicing radiologists, it is also appropriate for residents and technologists who are assessing the need for digital mammography in their practices. Some of the material, particularly the atlas portions (though excellent) may be a little simplistic for practicing radiologists.
Features: The author begins with four chapters that briefly cover the history of breast imaging, physics of digital mammography, a description of mammographic equipment, and a review of normal anatomy and reporting. This is followed by an extensive atlas with excellent images — probably the greatest strength of the book. Although the image quality is quite good, there is not a tremendous difference between the appearance of most findings on digital and analog mammographic images. Nonetheless, particularly for residents, this information could be very useful. The narrative chapters are fairly basic and the material is probably familiar to most practicing radiologists. One of the biggest adjustments in incorporating digital mammography into a practice seems to be the required work flow changes. More suggestions and observations regarding this area may be helpful if future editions are planned. Conversely, the conversion to digital mammography seems to be occurring at such a rapid pace in this country that future editions may not be necessary.
Assessment: Overall, this brief book is well put together and offers a nice overview of the topic. There are not many other books in this field to which to compare it as it is a fairly limited subject. It is probably most useful to residents or perhaps radiologists early in practice.
