Meeting the needs for specialist surgeons and clinical chemists, this atlas provides a comprehensive visual presentation of breast cancer. It takes the reader through the anatomy of the breast, followed by a clear guide to the use of available imaging and diagnostic techniques, including ultrasound, mammography, cytochemistry and histochemistry

Compiled by leading experts in the UK, this book leads the reader through the anatomy of the breast, followed by a clear guide to the use of available imaging and diagnostic techniques, including ultrasound, mammography, histopathology and immunohistochemistry.

Pertinent clinical information relating to clinical presentation, differential diagnosis and prognostic indicators are concisely outlined, and the assessment of apparently non-malignant or premalignant abnormalities is discussed; this is followed by a summary of the epidemiology of breast cancer and the effectiveness of screening. Finally, using numerous graphics and citing key references in the field, the authors provide detailed additional chapters on local and systemic treatments of early, advanced and metastatic disease, including psychosocial and aesthetic aspects that should be taken into account when treating the patient.
