From one of the world's most renowned mammographers and highly successful authors with Thieme, this book by Laszlo Tabar brings a lifetime of experience in interpreting mammographic images to publication.
Here Laszlo Tabar introduces a systematic method, based on his experience in giving courses worldwide, for interpreting mammographic images which, in its thoroughness, greatly reduces the opportunity for missing the most subtle of pathologic findings. The emphasis is on early detection.
Where appropriate, pathologic specimens are shown in photographs to illustrate why mammographs appear as they do.
This is the ultimate mammographic atlas for the radiologist seeking to increase his or her interpretive skills. No breast imager should be without this book.

'A mammographic atlas for reference...tools for developing improved intrepretative abilities...a useful addition to other publications in mammography.' -- Doody's Book Review'Teaching points are masterfully illustrated by images, diagrams and charts. Side-by-side comparisons of mammographic findings and exquisitely reproduced sub-gross, 3D histologic images allow the reader to gain a deeper understanding of normal breast anatomy and malignant disease. The value of such comparison cannot be over-emphasized. Any radiologist involved in breast screening will surely benefit...Breast Cancer will be a much used reference for anyone involved in mammography or breast pathology.' -- AuntMinnie[The editors'] object was definitely reached by successfully introducing many junior radiologists to the understanding of mammography, and at the same time helping more senior mammographers in the correct interpretation of a questionable finding. ...With excellent, demonstrative illustrations for the proper positioning of the patient, in order to obtain the most successful mammographic images. The chapters are accompanied by a rich iconography of excellent quality. It was a pleasure to read and analyze this textbook, which leads the reader step by step to a better understanding of the mammographic images when compared with their histo-pathological aspects and, therefore, to correlating the two findings and obtaining a definite diagnostic conclusion. Appreciated also was the chapter dedicated to the positioning of the patient, a particular which often is not considered of primary importance but on which many times the performance of a successful mammography depends. The publisher should also be congratulated for the typography and superb image-presentation of the topics discussed. -- Journal of Clinical ImagingHelp in identifying the more difficult-to-interpret parenchymal patternsThis is a beautifully illustrated book in which images far outnumber text.
