Overview

The names Tabr and Dean are associated with high-quality mammography worldwide. In this fourth edition of the bestselling Teaching Atlas of Mammography, readers are again invited to share in the authors experience of analyzing and evaluating mammograms. Their systematic approach not only instills a full understanding of the principles of mammography but also provides the requisite knowledge and tools to arrive at a highly accurate differential diagnosis.Rather than starting with the diagnosis and demonstrating typical findings, the approach of this atlas is to teach the reader how to analyze the image and reach the correct diagnosis through proper evaluation of the mammographic signs. Prerequisites for the perception and evaluation of the mammographic findings are optimum technique, knowledge of anatomy, and understanding of the pathological processes leading to the mammographic appearances.Special features:

  • Revised and expanded case studies, based on 40 years of imaging experience, provide instructive long-term follow-up of patients over a period of up to 25 years
  • Offers a unique comparison of imaging findings with the corresponding large thin-section and subgross thicksection (3D) histologic images to facilitate an understanding of the pathologic processes and the mammographic appearances they lead to
  • Includes an abundance of coned-down compression views, microfocus magnification views, and specimen radiographs to support the analytic workup


  • Teaching Atlas of Mammography and the Breast Cancer book series by the same authors are essential for residents in radiology and practicing radiologists who need the highest level of training in the radiologic anatomy of the normal breast and the changes associated with benign and malignant lesions. They will help ensure that all clinicians acquire the optimal technique and knowledge of pathologic processes necessary to reach a correct diagnosis, and achieve the best long-term outcomes for their patients.

    Editorial Reviews

    New edition of an atlas that shows radiologists how to analyze mammograms and arrive at the correct diagnosis through proper evaluation of the findings. The illustrated cases, based on referred patient material and 80,000 mammographic screening exams, covers the entire range of breast abnormalities, including the outcome of screen- detected cases at 20-year follow-up. In order to enhance perceptual skills, Tabár (Falun Central Hospital) and Peter B. Dean (University Central Hospital) present a method for systematic viewing, followed by a series of images with obscure lesions. Oversize: 9.5x12.5". Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
