Open Access Medical Books


Edited by Nachiko Uchiyama and Marcelo Zanchetta do Nascimento .

In this volume, the topics are constructed from a variety of contents: the bases of 
mammography systems, optimization of screening mammography with reference to 
evidence-based research, new technologies of image acquisition and its surrounding 
systems, and case reports with reference to up-to-date multimodality images of breast 
Mammography has been lagged in the transition to digital imaging systems because of 
the necessity of high resolution for diagnosis. However, in the past ten years, technical 
improvement has resolved the difficulties and boosted new diagnostic systems. We 
hope that the reader will learn the essentials of mammography and will be forwardlooking 
for the new technologies.
We want to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation to all the co-authors who 
have contributed their work to this volume.
