Digital Mammography : A Practical Approach Hardback
Edited by Gary J. Whitman, Tamara Milner Haygood
Digital mammography has many advantages over film-screen mammography, including faster acquisition, easier storage and easier retrieval of images.
Written by expert radiologists and physicists, Digital Mammography: A Practical Approach compares digital mammography to conventional film-screen mammography, reviews clinical cases and explores newer modalities.
Key topics include: * Digital detectors * Monitors * Image acquisition * Image storage, retrieval and transfer * Image interpretation and efficacy * Artifacts * A comparison of commercially available systems * Mobile digital mammography.
An image atlas and sections on digital tomosynthesis and computed tomography of the breast enhance the text.
Digital Mammography: A Practical Approach melds the worlds of clinical radiology and physics in an easy-to-understand, practical resource.
A valuable addition to the shelf of radiologists, radiologic technicians, practising medical physicists and mammography technologists; and any practitioners developing and expanding digital mammography programs.
