Summary note:
"While the first edition of this book was written during my 9 years working at the University of Gt̲tingen in the field of MR mammography, this second edition reflects not only the innovative changes in the performance and analysis of MR mammography but also my new vantage point modified by the shift of my working field. The current edition includes all the experience I have accumulated during the last 7 years of work at the Women's Health Care Center, Gt̲tingen. In this frame of reference, where individualized and optimal diagnostic strategies are implemented for the early detection of breast cancer, MR mammography has increasingly earned a central role. It has also shown itself to be the most reliable diagnostic method for staging and follow-up after breast cancer"--Provided by publisher.
