Beschreibung

The Fourth International Copenhagen Symposium on Detec tion of Breast Cancer, which took place in Copenhagen August 1988, made it possible once again for scientists from all over the world to come together to present the latest advances in the fight against breast cancer. This book forms a synthesis of important contributions, with special reference to follow-up screening trials, stereotactic X-ray guided fine-needle aspira tion biopsy procedures, and new and important contributions to our knowledge concerning nonpalpable breast tumors. It is our fervent hope that the reader of this book will be encouraged to join in the struggle against breast cancer, especially screening programs, in order to detect the disease as early as possible, bearing in mind that breast cancer, in spite of recent advances, still is a dreadful strain on women throughout the world.

Klappentext

This book gives a synthesis of the latest advances in the early diagnosis of breast cancer. The information on mammographic screening and follow-up trials from Scandinavian and American screening centers is particularly important. The book also discusses cost/benefit problems, radiation risk from screening mammography, technical diagnostic examinations such as stereotactic biopsies and sonography, and non-palpable breast tumors. The contributions are from international specialists and represent the latest advances in the fight against breast cancer.
