The aim of this book is to provide crisp information related to pathology, management and radiological/molecular imaging in breast carcinoma, along with detailed information on FDG PET-CT in breast cancer, normal variants, artefacts, pitfalls with atlas illustrations.
The book is unique in providing quick reference to practice of PET/CT in breast cancer. The initial few chapters are related to the pathology and management of breast carcinoma to help understand the pathophysiology of breast cancer before going to the imaging. The chapter on imaging in breast cancer highlights the role of different imaging modalities for different indications to the reader. The last four chapters describe in detail the role, normal variants, artefacts and pitfalls of FDG PET/CT along with recent molecular imaging advances in breast cancer.
Written by Pathology, Oncology, Radiology and Nuclear Medicine experts from different countries with enormous experience in breast cancer practice, the book addresses nuclear medicine physicians and radiologists, but it may be of interest to a wider medical community, including oncologists and radiotherapists.
