This book is the premier guide to ultrasound-guided interventions of the breast. Written by Bruno D Fornage, a world-renowned leader in the fields of breast ultrasound and ultrasound-guided interventions, it covers in detail techniques of freehand ultrasound-guided breast biopsy, placement of post-biopsy markers, localization of nonpalpable lesions, and percutaneous ablation of breast masses. A large part of the book describes the highly effective combined use of fine-needle aspiration and core-needle biopsy during the staging of breast cancer; this combination has been used successfully by the author at MD Anderson Cancer Center for 3 decades.
Throughout the book, the author shares numerous tips and tricks, many of which have not been published before. With over 1300 figures and and 200 videoclips depicting ultrasound-guided procedures, Interventional Ultrasound of the Breast is the authoritative resource for breast imagers, interventional radiologists, surgical breast oncologists, pathologists, and anyone who embarks on ultrasound-guided breast biopsies and other breast procedures. In addition, the techniques described in this book are applicable to many other areas of the body, including the thyroid and soft tissues.
