Essentials of Diagnostic Breast Pathology
BeschreibungThis abundantly illustrated reference work focuses on the essential information needed by pathologists in order to interpret breast lesions (tumors) appropriately. Particular attention is paid to the diagnostic criteria with systematic analysis of differential diagnoses. Value and limitations of immunohistochemistry as a diagnostic adjunct are demonstrated as well. Using a systematic approach, this book contains the fundamental information required to avoid misinterpreting breast lesions and thus the under or over-treatment of patients.

PressestimmenFrom the reviews:
"The pathologist-in-training and general pathologist will benefit from the addition of Dr Farid Monifar's Essentials of Diagnostic Breast Pathology: A Practical Approach to their personal library. The goal of this 470-page combination text-atlas is to serve as an efficient reference to both educate and update the practicing diagnostician through guiding the processing, microscopic analysis, and clinico-pathologic correlation of a wide spectrum of common and uncommon breast lesions. Monifar uses focused and captioned text describing more than 1100 full-color illustrations to aid in this challenging task." (Giovanna Crisi, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 298 (15), 2007)
"This is a succinct and practical guide to diagnosis of breast disease with over 1,100 full-color illustrations demonstrating gross, histologic, cytologic, and immunohistochemical findings of common and challenging breast lesions. The text is short and precise and each disease entity is emphasized with case presentations. ... a nice addition to the existing breast pathology books as it stresses specifically the practical diagnostic essentials in breast pathology. ... written for practicing pathologists and pathologists in training who deal with breast pathology on a daily basis."
