New York/Stuttgart, May 2008 - Thieme Publishers announced today the release of Crushed Stone-like Calcifications: The Most Frequent Malignant Type by Laszlo Tabar, MD, Peter B. Dean, MD, and Tibor Tot, MD. The new book is the latest edition to the recently launched Breast Cancer: Early Detection with Mammography series.

Dr. Tabar and Dr. Dean, internationally renowned breast cancer imagers, along with Dr. Tot, a distinguished pathologist, use their expertise to help readers uncover breast cancer at the earliest possible stage by focusing on the most frequently occurring malignant type of calcifications.

Crushed Stone-like Calcifications is filled with concise descriptions of mammographic and MRI findings and is one of the most reliable guides for accurate diagnosis and differential diagnosis. The highly visual book contains more than 800 exceptionally clear images and includes unambiguous discussions of terminology based on thorough analysis. 3-D histologic features, along with enclosed viewing glasses, assist readers in recognizing specially marked images in their true three-dimensional form.

This book is an exceptional reference work that is ideal for breast imagers and breast pathologists, as well as surgeons and oncologists who specialize in breast diseases. The state-of-the-art tool is adept for use when interpreting mammograms in a clinical setting and is the perfect assistant for radiologists who desire to harness the power of mammography to detect breast cancer at the earliest possible stage.

The Breast Cancer: Early Detection with Mammography series describes in great detail the many subtypes of breast cancer in an effort to improve diagnosis and treatment. Other volumes in the series cover areas such as crushed stone -- like and powdery calcifications and spiculated lesions as well as architectural distortion.
