Mammographic Image Analysis

The key contribution of the approach to x-ray mammographic image analysis developed in this monograph is a representation of the non-fatty compressed breast tissue that we show can be derived from a single mammogram. The importance of the representation, called hint, is that it removes all those changes in the image that are due only to the particular imaging conditions (for example, the film speed or exposure time), leaving just the non-fatty 'interesting' tissue. Normalising images in this way enables them to be enhanced and matched, and regions in them to be classified more reliably, because unnecessary, distracting variations have been eliminated. Part I of the monograph develops a model-based approach to x-ray mammography, Part II shows how it can be put to work successfully on a range of clinically-important tasks, while Part III develops a model and exploits it for contrast-enhanced MRI mammography. The final chapter points the way forward in a number of promising areas of research.

Dieses Buch ist die offiziell genehmigte, deutsche Übersetzung des ACR BI-RADS®-Atlas in seiner fünften Auflage. Der ACR BI-RADS®-Atlas ist ein qualitätssicherndes Werkzeug zur Standardisierung des Berichtswesens, der Unklarheiten in der Befundung der Mammadiagnostik wie auch bei den Vorschlägen zum weiteren Vorgehen verringern soll. Er macht die Ergebnisse von Instituten wie auch von einzelnen Befundern vergleichbarer und leichter kontrollierbar und verbessert somit die Versorgungsqualität für die Patientinnen. Inhalt: Der ACR BI-RADS®-Atlas umfasst das Spektrum der in der Praxis etablierten und wissenschaftlich fundierten Bildgebung der Mamma und besteht aus vier Teilen Mammografie, Sonographie der Mamma, Magnetresonanztomografie der Mamma sowie Nachkontrolle und Ergebnisüberwachung, in dem das klinisch relevante Audit und das erweiterte Audit der medizinischen Qualitätskontrolle erläutert werden. Nach einem jeweils einführenden Kapitel zu den drei bildgebenden diagnostischen Methoden folgt ein Atlasteil mit klaren Angaben zu den diagnostischen Kriterien wie Form, Rand, Verkalkungen, Kriterien der Kontrastmittelaufnahme etc., die sich durch klare Definitionen und einheitliche Benennungen auszeichnen. Für jedes Beschreibungskriterium wird hochqualitatives Bildmaterial gezeigt. Danach erläutert jeweils ein Kapitel, wie ein Befund erstellt werden sollte. Ziel ist es, anhand einer klaren und eindeutigen Diktion ohne adjektivische Ausschmückungen die Malignitätswahrscheinlichkeit einer Veränderung einzustufen, die sog. Festlegungskategorien 0-6 nach BI-RADS®, und auf dieser Grundlage ebenso klare Handlungsempfehlungen zur weiteren Aufarbeitung auszusprechen, die vom Vergleich mit Voraufnahmen über weitere bildgebende Diagnostik bis zur Empfehlung der Gewebediagnose mittels Biopsie reichen. Eingehend werden die Unterschiede von Screening- und diagnostischen Kategorisierungen abgehandelt. Der Leser findet jeweils im Kapitel "Hilfestellung" praktischen Rat zur Anwendung der deskriptiven Terminologie der einzelnen Verfahren, zur richtigen Verwendung der BI-RADS® Kategorien und zur Konkordanz von Befund und Handlungsempfehlung, abgeschlossen durch ein Schlusskapitel mit häufig gestellten Fragen und den Antworten darauf. Am Ende der diagnostischen Kapitel stehen komprimierte Formblätter, die dem Leser als Vorlage zu seinem Befundungssystem dienen können. Damit geht dieses Buch weit über den Rahmen eines Atlas hinaus, es ist eine große normative Hilfe für alle Probleme der Screening- und der diagnostischen Bildgebung.
