breast oncology techniques indications and interpretation 2017

linda moy

description

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 introduces the reader to the parameters of breast mri from standard sequences to up-to-date cutting edge techniques. indications provides a careful review of the accepted indications for breast mri from high risk screening to use of breast mri, in the context of neoadjuvant chemotherapy with a detailed analysis of the evidence-based support for these indications and a careful look at controversies and debates within the field. mri findings, interpretation, and management takes on the topics of how to interpret and manage specific mri findings from benign to malignant disease with a focus on radiologic-pathologic correlation. the section also incorporates a focus on key management dilemmas, including appropriate follow-up intervals for benign findings on mri and management of probably benign lesions assessed as a breast imaging reporting and dictating system (bi-rads)-3 category on mri.show more

elastography a practical approach

51cx3gfymlby richard g. barr

description

this practical guide is a compilation of firsthand expertise from leading authorities around the world on the use of ultrasound elastography. the stiffness or softness of the imaged tissue derived from elastography provides accurate radiologic diagnosis for disease processes including cancer, inflammation, and fibrosis. it is an efficacious and accurate diagnostic imaging modality that helps avoid invasive biopsies.

the first two chapters cover basic fundamental principles of elastography, with subsequent chapters exploring pathology-specific utilization. the authors cover the extensively validated and implemented use of elastography for diffuse liver disease, and diseases of the breast andthyroid gland. they also discuss the potential benefits and limitations for the prostate, spleen, pancreas, kidneys, musculoskeletal system, salivary glands, lymph nodes, and testes. the book concludes with a chapter on potential future applications of this ever-evolving technology.

key highlights

  • discussion of key differences between strain elastography and shear wave elastography by individual organ systems
  • clinical pearls on how to accurately perform elastography and tips for avoiding false-positive or false-negative results
  • case studies elucidate the targeted use of elastographic findings by specific pathology
  • illustrations in the breast and liver chapters demonstrate precise transducer techniques
  • mri elastography as an emerging and safe assessment tool, primarily for the diagnosis of liver disease, with emergent potential for additional organs

this book provides key knowledge on visualizing quantifiable differences in tissue elasticity and applying this data to improved treatment strategies for diverse pathologies. it is essential reading for radiologists, sonographers, and imaging technicians.

atlas of full breast ultrasonography 2016

aristida georgescu

description

this atlas describes and illustrates a novel approach, referred to as full breast ultrasonography (fbu), that represents a challenge to conventional breast imaging diagnosis. the coverage encompasses examination technique, diagnostic criteria, the imaging features of a wide variety of lesions, and role in follow-up. fbu involves anatomic ultrasound scanning based on the ductal echography technique proposed by michel teboul, supplemented by doppler and real-time sonoelastography. the approach offers a variety of advantages. compared with mri it has a lower cost, wider availability, better resolution, and improved correlation with anatomy. compared with mammography it has the benefits of absence of irradiation and pain, applicability in all cases, and better overall accuracy. furthermore, the standardized technique of acquisition and interpretation means that it is suitable as a screening test, unlike classic ultrasonography. fbu is applicable in ultrasound bi-rads assessment and is of value in depicting both benign and malignant conditions.
it can be recommended as a first-line method of diagnosis and for the follow-up of treated breasts, regardless of the patient's age, sex, or physical condition.show more

an introduction to microwave imaging for breast cancer detection 2016

martin o'halloran

description

this book collates past and current research on one of the most promising emerging modalities for breast cancer detection. readers will discover how, as a standalone technology or in conjunction with another modality, microwave imaging has the potential to provide reliable, safe and comfortable breast exams at low cost. current breast imaging modalities include x- ray, ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging, and positron emission tomography. each of these methods suffers from limitations, including poor sensitivity or specificity, high cost, patient discomfort, and exposure to potentially harmful ionising radiation. microwave breast imaging is based on a contrast in the dielectric properties of breast tissue that exists at microwave frequencies. the book begins by considering the anatomy and dielectric properties of the breast, contrasting historical and recent studies. next, radar-based breast imaging algorithms are discussed, encompassing both early-stage artefact removal, and data independent and adaptive beamforming algorithms.
in a similar fashion, microwave tomographic reconstruction algorithms are reviewed in the following chapter, introducing the reader to both the fundamental and more advanced algorithms. apart from imaging, the book also reviews research efforts in extracting clinically useful information from the radar target signature of breast tumours, which is used to classify tumours as either benign or malignant. finally, the book concludes by describing the current state of the art in terms of prototype microwave breast imaging systems, with a particular emphasis on those which have progressed to the clinical evaluation stage. this work is motivated by the fact that breast cancer is one of the leading causes of death amongst women in europe and the us, and the second most common cancer in the world today. such an important area of research will appeal to many scholars and practitioners.p>show more

digital mammography a holistic approach

by peter hogg (editor), judith kelly (editor), claire mercer (editor)

presently there is no single evidence-based publication which covers the range of mammography and mammography-related techniques used in practice. this book addresses this deficiency. therefore, the purpose of this book is to offer a single publication to be utilised comprehensively as a reference manual within current mammographic clinical practice for use by assistant practitioners and practitioners as well as trainees in radiography and related disciplines. in recent years mammographic clinical practice and technology have evolved rapidly and become increasingly sophisticated, this book will cover these issues. the public feel increasingly empowered to ‘have a say’ in their care and expectations of their mammography experience is high. consequently a well-trained, well-informed practitioner is of paramount importance in clinical practice today. this book addresses patient/client-related issues in the form of psychological and emotional support they may require. this will enable the reader to gain insight into the patient/client perspective and thereby assist in meeting their needs.
