 CT
Breast Cancer Imaging 
A Multidisciplinary, Multimodality Approach 
By Marie Tartar, MD, Chris E. Comstock, MD and Michael S. Kipper, MD 
Qty:      
Email this page to a friend
Description:

Through a case-based approach, this book illustrates the best practices for all facets of breast cancer imaging – from screening of asymptomatic patients to cancer staging, identifying metastases, and assessing efficacy of treatment – in a succinct, practical source. Contributing authors from a wide range of subspecialties provide well-rounded guidance to meet the needs of today's multidisciplinary work environment.

Key Features:

Presents multidisciplinary discussions on the advantages and/or limitations of all available modalities.
Includes advice from leading experts on cross-sectional imaging, breast imaging, and PET/CT, with input from radiation oncology, medical oncology, and breast surgery, to span the complete spectrum of care from screening to diagnosis to treatment, reflecting today’s team approach to patient care.
Covers all imaging modalities to help you correlate disease presentations on mammography, CT, MR, US, and PET images.
Offers a very practical, clinical, concise approach to the subject in a case-based format.
Provides over 1,000 high-resolution images of disease appearance for comparison with the findings you encounter in your practice.

Table of Contents:

Chapter 1: Screening for breast cancer in asymptomatic patients
by Chris Comstock, MD and Marie Tartar, MD


Case 1: Breast cancer presenting as a small new mass on mammography
Case 2: Breast cancer presenting as a new mass on mammography
Case 3: Breast cancer presenting as a new spiculated mass on mammography
Case 4: Breast cancer presenting as a small growing mass in the axilla
Case 5: IDC presenting as a small growing mass
Case 6: Small growing breast cancer presenting as a contour change on mammography
Case 7: Breast cancer presenting as a largely obscured mass in dense breast tissue
Case 8: Slowing growing microlobulated colloid carcinoma (benign looking
growing mass)
Case 9: Breast cancer presenting as a new posterior mass on mammography: importance of inclusion of posterior breast tissue on mammography
Case 10: DCIS presenting as a microcalcification cluster
Case 11” DCIS presenting as multiple microcalcification clusters along a ductal ray
Case 12: Breast cancer presenting as architectural distortion in extremely dense breasts
Case 13: ILC presenting as growing amorphous density
Case 14: Small cancer in implant patient, well seen only on implant displaced
views
Case 15: Importance of complete work-up of new mammographic masses
Case 16: MRI high risk screening for occult breast cancer
Case 17: MRI high risk screening for occult breast cancer
Case 18: Breast cancer presenting as a growing small mass on screening MRI
Case 19: CT identification of unknown breast cancer in an asymptomatic patient
Case 20: PET identification of occult breast cancer in an asymptomatic patient

Chapter 2: Evaluation of the symptomatic patient: Diagnostic breast imaging

Cases:
1. Palpable axillary IDC, presenting as a growing mammographic mass simulating a lymph node
2. Palpable lump presenting as malignant microcalcifications on mammography
3. Palpable IDC presenting as mammographic architectural distortion and shadowing sonographic mass
4. Palpable ILC presenting as architectural distortion
5. Palpable lump presenting with masses and pleomorphic microcalcifications
6. Palpable lump presenting as mammographic architectural distortion with microcalcifications
7. Palpable lump presenting as growing amorphous mammographic asymmetry
8. Palpable lump presenting as developing mammographic density
9. Mammographically occult palpable breast cancer
10. Large, palpable, mammographically occult invasive carcinoma
11. Breast cancer involving the nipple-areolar complex, not identified on conventional imaging, demonstrated by MRI
12. Mammographically occult retroaerolar breast cancer presenting as nipple retraction
13. Importance of clear communication and accurate history; Inaccurate history of biopsy “scar” leads to near-miss of a spiculated cancer
14. Axillary nodal p
