Illustrates the "how" and "why" of breast imaging, whether via mammography or ultrasound.

It uses a case-based approach to walk you through a wide range of common and uncommon findings and correlates imaging patterns to pathology, helping you build your pattern recognition skills so you can diagnose breast cases with complete confidence.

Key features:

- Increase your pattern recognition skills thanks to an organization by categories of pathologic presentation (i.e. masses, calcifications, architectural distortion, and other, less common malignant features) rather than by final diagnosis.
- Learn to evaluate masses based on shapes and margins, calcifications based on morphology and distribution, and distinguish architectural distortion from overlapping tissues.
- See how to distinguish between benign and malignant possibilities for almost every feature.
- Master the methodical thought process used by the most experienced radiologists so you can navigate the most challenging imaging findings, avoid diagnostic pitfalls, and provide the early detection patients need to ensure the best outcomes.
