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 more

Review quote

"...High quality book...fills a niche, providing a substantial amount of information on the physical basis of digital mammography combined with clinical information, and should prove to be a useful resource." - Doody's Review Serviceshow more
