Radionuclide Imaging of the Breast by Raymond
Taillefer (Editor), Iraj Khalkhali (Editor), Allan D. Waxman
Radionuclide Imaging of the Breast provides an overview of scintimammography and demonstrates the role of nuclear medicine as a complementary technique to mammography and other imaging modalities for the diagnosis of breast cancer. After material on the pathology of breast cancer, surgical perspectives, and mammography and interventional breast procedures, chapters describe methods for breast imaging such as positron emission tomography, radiolabeled antibodies, thalium imaging, and 99m Tc-labeled perfusion imaging agents. The book includes 200 black and white micrographs and x-rays of radionuclide imaging of the breast performed with 99m Tc-sestamibi as well as imaging and breast scintigraphy performed with 99m Tc-MDP.
