Simplified and Illustrated Breast Pathology: A Book for All Breast Care Providers

ROHIT BHARGAVA
ISBN: 978935152778720151/e

Synopsis

This volume entitled Simplified and Illustrated Breast Pathology is unique as it meets the needs of both pathologists and non-pathologists. It is not unusual for clinicians to receive complex breast pathology reports that require clarification from a pathologist, and sometimes pathologists are uncertain about the rationale underlying requests they receive from clinicians. The book helps to bridge that communication divide. It explains breast tissue histopathology in simple language and uses the very helpful feature of annotated figures to explain standard pathology terminology. Further it addresses standardized formats for reporting and provides reasons for performing or not performing a particular test or procedure. The chapter on Diagnostic Immunohistochemistry explains when and how immunohistochemical stains should be used and catalogs the expected results for particular types of lesions. The chapter on current Prognostic/Predictive Marker Testing in Breast Cancer provides a valuable discussion of both analytic and non-analytic aspects of the tests. This information is immensely helpful to all clinicians, including budding breast surgeons and medical and radiation oncologists. Many researchers will also find this text to be a comprehensive resource as they try to place their basic science findings into a clinically relevant context. And of course, general pathologists and pathology trainees will get a unique perspective of breast pathology from an outstanding breast pathologist.

      Key Features

      This is a single-author book on breast pathology written in simple language with numerous fully annotated illustrations, Management of breast diseases/ cancer requires a team approach and a number of physicians (surgeons, pathologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists), nurses, physician assistants, pathology assistants and basic science researchers are involved directly or indirectly with patient care.

      Pathology is the basis of understanding any disease process and is very important for every specialist; but unfortunately it is a field that only pathologists understand.

      This breast pathology book contains useful information for both pathologists and non-pathologists.

      It has been written keeping the “busy physician” in mind.

      Therefore, un-necessary details and pathology jargon has been excluded and only clinically relevant information is provided.

      The book contains numerous microscopic images and all of them are explained not only using legends but also pointers (such as arrow/ circles, etc.

      ) to point a specific cell, cell abnormality or staining pattern.

      The book also includes a chapter on “Frequently Asked Questions”.

      Many of these thought-provoking and interesting questions have been asked by authors colleagues over the last ten years.

      The answers to these questions provide a unique perspective of breast pathology in routine practice.
