Demonstrating the role of nuclear medicine as a complementary technique to mammography and other imaging modalities for the diagnosis of breast cancer, Radionuclide Imaging of the Breast provides a comprehensive overview of scintimammography-an accurate, safe, and noninvasive imaging method for the evaluation of breast lesions and malignancies.
Reveals the encouraging results of multicenter clinical trials in the U.S. and Canada using 99mTc sestamibi breast imaging for the diagnosis of primary breast carcinoma!
Addressing nonsurgical sampling of nonpalpable breast lesions as an effective means of providing diagnostic and prognostic information, Radionuclide Imaging of the Breast
  • discusses increasing the diagnostic value of mammography and its widespread use
  • examines the reliability of FDG-PET and FDG-SPECT in detecting lymph node involvement and distant metastases
  • reviews breast cancer imaging with monoclonal antibodies, including murine and bioengineered antibodies
  • compares the benefits and limitations of Thallium-20l to 99mTc-sestamibi breast imaging in evaluating suspected malignancy
  • assesses the clinical impact of scintimammography as an adjunctive test to mammography to improve the dependability of diagnoses
  • considers the possibility of replacing axillary lymph node dissection in patients with small breast cancers with the sentinel node approach
  • clarifies the importance of surgery in the multimodality treatment of breast cancer
  • elucidates pathologic difficulties for breast cancer diagnosis
  • and more!
    Radionuclide Imaging of the Breast serves as an essential reference for nuclear medicine physicians, radiologists, breast surgeons, medical and surgical oncologists, gynecologists, pathologists, internists, and primary care physicians.
