Understanding the Breast in Health and Disease
is garnering accolades from its readers. Here are some recommendations from industry professionals.
the Breast in Health and Disease
truly helps the reader understand normal and abnormal breast changes. The
prestigious and interdisciplinary trio of physician authors captures everything
for breast imaging/pathology correlation and I was happy to see all imaging
modalities illustrated. On page 8 is an exemplary display of 5 radiographic
patterns of normalcy and levels of mammographic density - quite helpful for
patients to understand their own screening and/or diagnostic images.
Quite honestly, this book is a primer for Fellows in Radiology, Pathology and
Surgery, Medical Oncology and Radiation Therapy as well as patients. It should
be required reading for every professional (nurses, radiologic/MRI/Ultrasound
technologists etc.) specializing in breast cancer detection and care
The publishers did an excellent job in setting the
format and font for easy reading of the book with 3D magnifying glasses. The
correlative pictures of nature compliment the anatomy and pathophysiology and
further enhance the readability.
Best of all...the price is right. I intend to
use the book with nursing students as well as interdisciplinary breast center
Thank you, Drs. Tabár, Tot, Dean!

You have to see this to believe it!
There are many
books about breast disease, but this one is truly one of a kind! Dr. László
Tabár is a masterful
educator and he brings his knowledge of breast anatomy and disease and his
skill in teaching together in this beautifully illustrated book about the
normal and abnormal breast.
Nowhere else can you
journey through the inside of the human breast in 3 dimensions with the
included viewing glasses. Each full-color image is carefully described in
clear, easy-to-understand language and many are compared with remarkable scenes
from nature. For example, milk ducts of the breast are shown next to
photographs of branching tree limbs making the point that, in nature, there are
only so many ways of transporting fluids!
Dr. Tabár is one of the world's leading experts in
mammography and breast imaging and he includes mammograms and 3-dimensional
ultrasound images for comparison with the color 3-D breast images. Dr. Tabár personally prepares each of these images
from actual surgically removed breast tissue and recreates the experience of
viewing them from the laboratory to your armchair!
This book gives a
rare and entertaining opportunity to learn about the way the breast functions
in health and how disease changes the breast. By viewing the 3-dimensional
images, you will begin to appreciate the many varied faces of breast cancer.
Understanding the Breast in Health and Disease is highly recommended for anyone interested
in what happens inside the human breast – whether a healthcare worker, patient
or the simply curious.

Beautiful as well as very educational.
I am a breast surgeon, and I have long wished for pictures
that correctly portray the anatomic and microscopic structures that correlate
with common breast conditions such as cysts and menopausal changes, as well as
types of breast cancer. This book is utterly unique in providing these pictures
not only in full color, but 3-D (glasses included), and in a scale that shows
the actual structures of the breast. It also correlates these conditions with
their appearance on mammograms, ultrasonography, and breast MRI.
This is useful for educating patients, radiology
technicians, nurses and other medical personnel.
There is an accompanying audio
track available on the web that is very useful in explaining the pictures, and
I highly recommend listening to it, since there is a minimum of text in this
