Over the past decade interventional radiology techniques have replaced surgical and clinically guided diagnostic procedures such that the vast majority of patients have a non surgical diagnosis of a breast problem. Interventional Ultrasound of the Breast, written by a collection of well-established and respected authors from the UK’s leading cancer centres, is an invaluable reference for all medical and clinical oncologists, breast surgeons and radiologists.
