MRI is increasingly being used by radiologists to confirm diagnoses and perform operative procedures of the breast. MRI's contrast between soft tissues in the breast is many times greater than that obtained by plain-film mammography. As opposed to x-rays, which are known to cause damage to cellular DNA, the magnetic fields and radiowaves used with MRI are not known to have any long-term biologic effect. MRI of the breast requires intravenous injection of a contrast agent, which helps highlight breast abnormalities. The American Cancer Society has advised women at high risk for breast cancer to have an MRI. This book, a collaboration between an experienced breast imager and a breast surgeon, contains 100 cases and covers high risk screening, extent of disease evaluation, as well as the full range of benign and malignant tumors found in the breast: DCIS, invasive ductal cancers, and invasive lobule cancers. Rare lesions such as phyllodes, mucinous, liposarcomas, and myotiboblastomas are also covered. Pathologic correlations are included where appropriate. This book has a special emphasis on preoperative planning involving MRI and thus may also appeal to surgical oncologists specializing in breast cancer.

This book offers a comprehensive overview of the use of breast MRI for screening high-risk women, including those with familial-genetic hereditary predisposition and previous chest radiation therapy, typically lymphoma survivors. It discusses the historical background of studies and research that provided the body of evidence in favor of MRI screening of these women. Technical and clinical topics are treated in dedicated chapters, including models for individualized risk estimation, radiogenomics of breast cancer in high-risk women, computer-aided detection/diagnosis and machine learning systems applied to breast MRI, and psycho-oncology issues. Alternatives to breast MRI screening such as pharmaco-prevention and prophylactic mastectomy are also discussed, taking into account the public debate on the “Angelina Jolie” effect. The high breast cancer risk model is proposed as a paradigm for personalized medicine. This book will be of interest to radiologists, surgeons, oncologists and to all professionals devoted to female healthcare.

State-of-the-art resource details effective breast MRI techniques for improved screening and diagnosis Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the breast has evolved into an important breast cancer screening tool and major advance in women's health. Breast MRI is currently the most sensitive detection technique for both non-invasive and invasive cancers and follow-up in women with a new breast cancer diagnosis. It is increasingly becoming the go-to imaging method for screening women at high and intermediate risk of breast cancer and those with dense breast tissue on mammography. Yet despite its reliability and growing use, many radiologists lack the expertise to accurately perform breast MR image interpretation. Breast MRI Interpretation: Text and Online Case Analysis for Screening and Diagnosis by Gillian M. Newstead reflects insights and expertise from one of the leading authorities on breast imaging. The book is a highly practical reference on evaluation and interpretation of breast MR imaging, with discussion of the modality as a screening and diagnostic tool. Topics include image acquisition and interpretation, clinical implementation, managing findings, and overcoming problems. Key Highlights About 3,000 illustrations from the University of Chicago including single selected images, side-by-side images at different time points and acquisition parameters, and 3-D images enhance understanding of breast imaging Select online case studies enable readers to review and interpret entire MRI datasets Discussion of advanced acquisition techniques and future potential applications including non-contrast imaging, quantitative dynamic imaging, and artificial intelligence using advanced computer analytic methods This remarkable resource streamlines the breast MRI process, enabling radiologists to incorporate this imaging modality into practice, conduct screening and diagnostic exams more efficaciously, and interpret findings accurately. Note: The online case studies are only accessible via the online version of this book on MedOne. Access to MedOne is available inside this eBook.

Since the first edition of Contrast-Enhanced MRI of the Breast was published in 1990, further progress has been made in the field and interest in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as an additional tool in the diagnosis of breast disease has increased. However, further questions have arisen concerning the best choice of technique, the most appropriate way to interpret MR images, and the role which MRI might play in the work-up of breast disease. In this edition we give an overview of the latest technical possibilities and present knowledge, which today is based on a much greater range of experience gained by various excellent research groups. It is our aim to help the interested reader in choosing an appropriate technique and in finding those applications which promise the greatest benefit for the patient. The particular advantages and limitations of MRI have been pointed out and the currently known capabilities and still existing limitations of other imaging modalities, including transcutaneous biopsy, discussed. Finally, a chapter concerning the use of MRI in the diagnosis of implant failure, a new situation, has been added. Acknowledgements. Since the first edition was published, much further work and research has been necessary. This would not have been possible without the continuous support of many colleagues, coworkers, and advisors.
