Journal of Clinical Imaging

High-resolution MR mammography is superior to all other breast imaging modalities for the detection of invasive and intraductal breast cancer forms. It plays an important role in the early detection of breast cancer and in the more eff ective evaluation of breast disease, and has proven to be a reliable method for staging and follow-up after a breast cancer diagnosis. Since there are now dedicated materials available for the performance of percutaneous MRI-guided needle biopsies, it is also possible to obtain a histologic diagnosis of findings that are only detected on MRI. The completely revised and expanded second edition of Practical MR Mammography sets out to cover these thematic and technical developments.

Key Features:

  • Goal-oriented didactic structure throughout: When should breast MRI be performed? How does one proceed during the examination? How does one arrive at a diagnosis precisely and reliably? How can mistakes be avoided?
  • Now over 1300 completely new, high-quality images produced with the latest equipment
  • Summarized characteristics of distinct diseases: incidence, etiology, malignant potential, clinical and imaging findings
  • Inclusion and application of MRI-BIRADS
  • In-depth and updated coverage of DCIS

This book shows readers how to acquire excellent images and helps improve their image analysis and evaluation skills. It provides clear answers to all questions pertaining to MR mammography and support for special problems.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Bennett S. Greenspan, MD, MS (Medical College of Georgia)
Description: This comprehensive review of MR mammography describes various characteristics of the different kinds of breast cancer and describes the features of benign changes. This is an update of the 2002 edition.
Purpose: The purpose is to review the current status of imaging and interventional techniques using MRI. Significant advances in instrumentation and also spatial resolution in imaging have made breast MRI an essential modality in breast imaging. This book easily meets the author's objectives.
Audience: It is aimed at radiologists beginning to learn and use MRI of the breast, which would include radiologists in practice as well as residents and fellows in radiology. The book is also intended to help address questions or problems that experts in this modality may encounter.
Features: The book describes techniques and methods, artifacts, and sources of error. It presents normal findings in breast MRI, a review of benign lesions and postoperative changes, and a review of changes of the various types of breast cancers. It also discusses use of MRI-guided interventions. Other chapters cover indications for breast MRI, differential diagnosis, quality assurance, and include a discussion of value and limitations of this modality. The clinical sections have many high-quality imaging examples with a modest amount of discussion.
Assessment: This is an outstanding review of MRI of the breast. The significant improvements in this second edition, reflecting significant advances in the field, make it a valuable contribution to the field. In this edition, all of the clinical images have been replaced with high-quality 512 x 512 matrix images.
