Breast Imaging

Chapter

Abstract

  • Residents must now rotate through breast services and have part of their specialty board exam on breast disease. This directive, established by The American Board of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, impacts a physician's preparation for primary certification and recertification. This book will fill that need for the resident and practitioner alike, by providing the information needed to diagnose and manage breast disease. It will cover anatomy, physiology, functional breast disease, mammary dysplasia, benign and malignant tumors, congenital deformities, imaging, diagnostic surgery techniques, medical therapy, surgery, and reconstruction. Controversial issues such as hormone replacement therapy and breast examination will be included.
