Drs. Elizabeth Morris and Laura Liberman, two rising stars in breast MRI from the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, edited this complete, superbly illustrated practical guide. The comprehensive text is written by contributors from the top cancer centers in the world. Introductory chapters are devoted to diagnosis and cover the basics of performing breast MRI exams, setting up a breast MR program, and understanding clinical indications. Additional chapters discuss breast interventional procedures, including the surgeon's use of MR and MR-guided needle interventions. A comprehensive diagnostic atlas completes the volume and addresses the spectrum of clinical situations, such as various carcinomas, special tumor types, and benign histologies. Radiologists, residents, and fellows will benefit from this guide's thorough examination of image interpretation, which highlights pitfalls that specialists must recognize.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This is an excellent comprehensive text covering all aspects of breast magnetic resonance imaging. . an extremely useful text. . covers all the relevant theory behind this subject . . The illustrations . are of very high quality. . I commend this text to those who are practising breast MR, those wishing to improve their practice in this field and also those embarking on interventional breast MRI, as well as the interested radiology trainee. . very well referenced . ." (Dr. Erika Denton, RAD Magazine, October, 2005)"The authors have achieved their stated purpose: to review magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of the breast, including principles and practice of this essential imaging modality. . Breast MRI now stands alone as the best current reference text for the team that deals with normal and abnormal breast findings today: mammographers, surgeons, oncologists, and pathologists. It should be on hand for every radiologist performing breast MR imaging and should be available to show clinical colleagues classic images that match daily findings in patients." (Robert Hurwitz, Radiology, Vol. 243 (1), 2007)
