    This easy-to-understand pocketbook in the highly respected Clark’s stable of imaging texts is an invaluable tool and training aid, providing essential information for mammographic positioning, technique and interpretation for mammography practitioners at all levels.

    Adopting a systematic and structured approach facilitating rapid reference in the clinical setting, the book covers general principles and all routine mammographic projections, including additional and adapted projections covered in a separate section, and is highly illustrated with clear explanatory line diagrams and imaging photographs.

    Clark’s Essential Guide to Mammography is ideal as an educational tool for trainee mammographers, trainee assistant and associate apprenticeship mammographers, mammography training teams and universities delivering mammography education and a convenient clinical guide for practising mammographers, including assistant and associate apprenticeship mammographers.
