Present the second edition of Atlas of Breast Imaging with Mammography, Ultrasound and MRI Correlation which is a major revision. In this book provided a new update as most of the previous images have been replaced by digital images now and the volume has almost increased to double the size of the previous edition. There are approximately 1000 images as compared to the previous edition having half of this. A word of caution, with the introduction of CR systems for routine radiography work in this part of the world in a big way, there has been tendency on the part of radiologists to use it for mammography as well with disastrous results as shown by a few examples in the atlas. It is my earnest request to my fellow colleagues to use only dedicated CR system for mammography. The atlas provides a crisp and comprehensive information about mammography and ultrasound, correlating them with proven FNAC/biopsy results. It also touches upon the basics of MRI breast which is fast emerging as an important tool in evaluation of breast pathologies. Another major addition/revision is the inclusion of 111 case studies with excellent mammography and USG images as well as the description of the pathologies. The case studies and images all reflect the spectrum of mammography and sonographic changes that may occur in a given disease instead of the most common manifestation only. The atlas format has been redesigned in such a way that the case studies extensively cover most pathologies which will be a must read and an excellent teaching atlas of breast imaging for postgraduate residents of radiology, practicing radiologists with interest in breast radiology, breast surgeons and oncosurgeons.
