Reviews

-The book goes beyond precise detailed and technical explanations and includes psychological issues as well as communication, which are so important because of anxieties of women, who come for the evaluation of their breast. It is a classic updated concerning all conventional mammography and describes modern puncture and biopsy proceedures as well. Its layout allows for quick reference and seems to be very useful for technologists as well for those who have to instruct them- Rainer Otto, Department of Radiology, Kantonsspital, Baden, Switzerland, The Breast 12, 236 "The book goes beyond precise detailed and technical explanations and includes psychological issues as well as communication, which are so important because of anxieties of women, who come for the evaluation of their breast.
