About this book


This book presents up to date debates and issues in the world of breast MRI with a very practical focus on how to incorporate current understanding of breast MRI into clinical practice. The book is divided into three key sections, all of which have critical impact for the breast imager: 'Techniques', 'Indications', and 'MRI Findings, Interpretation, and Management', which also incorporates a focus on key management dilemmas, including appropriate follow-up intervals for benign findings on MRI and management of probably benign lesions.

Breast Oncology: Techniques, Indications, and Interpretation is  written by expert researchers and specialist clinicians, to ensure the reader is exposed to in-depth and current understanding of the issues relevant to best clinical MRI breast practice.

“This book is a comprehensive overview of the now well-established technique of breast MRI in the assessment of breast disease. … This book is most likely to be of interest to radiologists in sub-specialty training in breast imaging, but would also be of interest as a reference text to consultant radiologists established in reporting breast MRI with a moderate level of experience. … The book is compact and well laid out.” (Mamatha Reddy, RAD Magazine, June, 2018)
