The most comprehensive review available for the ARRT® Mammography Exam Written by an experienced radiography educator and clinician, Mammography & Breast Imaging Prep, Second Edition summarizes the mammography curriculum in a concise, accessible narrative to help students understand and remember key concepts. This study guide provides a thorough overview of breast imaging and patient care, including breast anatomy, physiology and pathology, digital and analog breast imaging equipment, quality control, interventional techniques, and treatment options. This essential review is bolstered by chapter-ending review questions with answer explanations that reference the text, allowing learners to gauge their comprehension of important material. Learning aids, such as objectives and glossaries at the beginning of each chapter, help students recognize and understand concepts that are likely to appear on the exam. • Numerous radiographs teach students to recognize good vs. bad films, normal circumscribed lesions, and breast calcifications • High-quality diagrams help students determine correct patient positioning consistent with the American College of Radiography and the Mammography Quality Control Manual • Reinforces classroom learning, while preparing students for certification
Now revised to reflect the new, clinically-focused certification exams, Review of Radiological Physics, Fourth Edition, offers a complete review for radiology residents and radiologic technologists preparing for certification. . This new edition covers x-ray production and interactions, projection and tomographic imaging, image quality, radiobiology, radiation protection, nuclear medicine, ultrasound, and magnetic resonance – all of the important physics information you need to understand the factors that improve or degrade image quality. Each chapter is followed by 20 questions for immediate self-assessment, and two end-of-book practice exams, each with 100 additional questions, offer a comprehensive review of the full range of topics.
Interventional Approach and Interpretation Methodology by Pattern Recognition
Author: Giorgio Gherardi
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
Needle biopsy is a simple, reliable, inexpensive, well-tolerated, and minimally invasive procedure for the diagnosis of tumors, both in superficial and in deep sites. Today, following the shift to a more conservative approach to tumor treatment, and in this era of "tailored" or "targeted" oncological therapies, the use of needle biopsy in the diagnosis of neoplasia, at all phases of the disease, is expected to increase dramatically. The efficacy of this technique is, however, strongly influenced by the experience of the physician performing the technique and by the pathologist’s ability to interpret the results derived from the minimal cellular harvest. The aim of this volume is to provide all of the information and insight needed to obtain a correct diagnosis based on needle biopsy evaluation. In a problem-oriented approach, the author describes the optimal interventional maneuver and biopsy-sample triage for all types of lesions. The reader is then guided through the interpretation of all possible cytological findings based on a pattern-analysis methodology. The integration of this information with clinical and preanalytical data is the best approach to obtain a correct diagnosis.
