Produktinformationen Breast Cancer
Early detection is our most effective means for reducing the number of unnecessary deaths caused by breast cancer; however, the lack of skilled mammographic readings, especially in early stage breast cancer, makes this a less effective tool than it could be. In this book, one of the world's most renowned mammographers shares his decades of experience in the analysis and interpretation of mammographic images. With Dr. Tabar's clear procedures and expert guidance, you will learn to discern the most subtle of pathologic changes to ensure that patients receive optimal and timely treatment. You will also improve your ability to recognize the full range of normal anatomic variability, avoiding unnecessary additional imaging and interventional procedures. This book contains more than 1,600 high-definition images, many in full-color, to demonstrate anatomic structures, variations in normal tissue, and difficult-to-identify abnormalities. You will also appreciate clear photographs of pathologic specimens, including subgross 3-D, and large, thin-section histologic sections, correlated with mammographic images. The result of more than two decades of intensive clinical experience, this is the ultimate mammographic atlas for developing expert interpretive skills. No radiologist or breast imager should be without this highly instructive professional reference., Tabar, Tot, Dean, Early Detection with Mammography Perception, Interpretation, Histopathology Breast Cancer. Early detection is our most effective means of reducing the number of unnecessary deaths caused by breast cancer. In this book, one of the world's most renowned mammographers shares his decades of experience in successfully teaching the analysis and interpretation of mammographic images. With an emphasis on early detection, you will learn to discern the most subtle of pathologic changes to ensure that your patients receive optimal and timely treatment. You will also improve your ability to recognize the full range of normal anatomic variability, helping you avoid unnecessary additional imaging and interventional procedures. Highlights: -Presentation of a systematic method for evaluating mammograms, based on the anatomic architecture, substructures, and patterns -More than 1600 mammograms and histologic sections of stunning quality showing the wide range of normal and abnormal breast tissue -Photomicrographs of large, thin-section pathology slides and subgross 3-D pathology sections which are correlated with mammographic images to explain why mammograms appear as they do -Highly detailed and illustrated instructions for positioning to help you obtain the best possible diagnostic imaging quality -The scientific rationale for setting early detection as the primary goal in mammography - supported by extensive references -An emphasis on better patient care through interdisciplinary cooperation among pathologists, radiologists, surgeons, and oncologists More than two decades in the writing, this is the ultimate mammographic atlas for developing expert interpretive skills.
