Product information Breast Cancer Mimics

Breast Cancer Mimics is an enthralling collection of case scenarios collected by radiologists across the globe, highlighting the one common line of thought– benign breast lesions that resemble malignancies.

Composed of dedicated breast radiologists, this book reflects the practical challenges that have been encountered in actual scenarios. Sufficient and only relevant content has been provided, with more emphasis being laid on the images and descriptors which can aid in distinguishing these conditions from malignancies.

 Key Features

  • Wide coverage of all benign conditions which mimic malignancy on imaging.
  • Apart from common conditions, even some of the rarest cases such as mammary tuberculosis, filariasis, granular cell tumor of the breast, and angiomatosis have been covered.
  • Classified, topic-specific literature background and histology creates a complete picture for the reader.
  • Self-assessment questions at the end of each unit enable the reader to not only recapitulate the content but also stimulate the thinking process.

Adobe PDF format (Portable Document Format) is a standard format in MAC/PC area. Free programs for reading a PDF are available for all common operating systems (e.g. Windows, Mac OS, Linux) and for almost all e-book readers such as e-book readers, tablets or smartphones.

What is the EPUB format?
EPUB (electronic publication) is a standard format for e-books that enables dynamic adaptation of the text to the size of the display device. It is particularly well suited for displaying e-books on tablet PCs, smartphones, and e-book readers.
EPUBs can also be easily displayed on MACs/PCs via the free ADE (Adobe Digital Editions) software, for example.

You can read an e-book on up to six different (mobile) devices. These devices must be authorized with the same Adobe ID.

Can I exchange/return an e-book?
E-books are products that are not suitable for return due to their nature. Just like downloads of other electronic files (movies, music or software), e-books are excluded from the right of withdrawal. A return or exchange is therefore not possible.
