The most effective way to decrease women's risk of becoming a breast cancer patient is to avoid attending screening. Mammography screening is one of the greatest controversies in healthcare, and the extent to which some scientists have sacrificed sound scientific principles in order to arrive at politically acceptable results in their research is extraordinary. In contrast, neutral observers increasingly find that the benefit has been much oversold and that the harms are much greater than previously believed. This groundbreaking book takes an evidence-based, critical look at the scientific disputes and the information provided to women by governments and cancer charities. It also explains why mammography screening is unlikely to be effective today. All health professionals and members of the public will find these revelations disturbingly illuminating. It will radically transform the way healthcare policy makers view mammography screening in the future.

Breast Cancer Screening: Making Sense of Complex and Evolving Evidence covers broad aspects of breast cancer screening specifically focusing on current evidence, emerging evidence, and issues that will be critical for future breast screening practice such as tailored screening and shared decision-making in breast screening. The scope of the book is relevant to a global audience. This book provides balanced perspectives on this increasingly controversial topic, using scientific evidence to explain the evolution of knowledge relating to breast cancer screening. Breast Cancer Screening covers the key points related to this debate including the context of increasingly complex and conflicting evidence, divergent opinions on the benefits and harms of breast screening, and variability in screening practice and outcomes across settings around the world. Explains complex and evolving evidence on breast screening with a balanced approach Provides balanced information and up-to-date evidence in an increasingly complex area Addresses emerging topical issues such as screening trials of digital breast tomosynthesis, tailored breast screening, and shared decision-making in breast screening Assists academics and researchers in identifying areas needing further research

Digital Radiography has been ? rmly established in diagnostic radiology during the last decade. Because of the special requirements of high contrast and spatial resolution needed for roentgen mammography, it took some more time to develop digital m- mography as a routine radiological tool. Recent technological progress in detector and screen design as well as increased ex- rience with computer applications for image processing have now enabled Digital Mammography to become a mature modality that opens new perspectives for the diag- sis of breast diseases. The editors of this timely new volume Prof. Dr. U. Bick and Dr. F. Diekmann, both well-known international leaders in breast imaging, have for many years been very active in the frontiers of theoretical and translational clinical research, needed to bring digital mammography ? nally into the sphere of daily clinical radiology. I am very much indebted to the editors as well as to the other internationally rec- nized experts in the ? eld for their outstanding state of the art contributions to this v- ume. It is indeed an excellent handbook that covers in depth all aspects of Digital Mammography and thus further enriches our book series Medical Radiology. The highly informative text as well as the numerous well-chosen superb illustrations will enable certi? ed radiologists as well as radiologists in training to deepen their knowledge in modern breast imaging.

Foreword from the Editors: The start of October marks the commencement of Breast Cancer Awareness month, an annual month-long event to raise awareness and express support for those that have been affected by breast cancer in one way or another. Thanks to the incredible work and efforts by the scientific community, we have greatly enhanced our ability to detect breast cancer in its earliest stages, and have been able to develop simple routine screening techniques to ensure that everyone, even those in areas where resources are scarce, can identify early signs of a tumor forming. Our ability to treat breast cancer has greatly improved, becoming more sophisticated and precise. The advent of state-of-the-art imaging instruments, advanced surgical techniques, and immunotherapy means that we are able to treat patients better, being mindful of the plethora of difficulties that arise for breast cancer survivors. Breast cancer, despite tremendous advances in recent decades, remains one of the most common cancer types across the globe, and efforts by the scientific community require continued to support in order to guarantee further advances. In this Special Edition, we present selected articles looking at breast cancer from all angles. Coming from a diverse set of authors, this Special Edition includes manuscripts evaluating nation-wide screening programs, advanced surgical techniques, the future direction of molecular targeting, and more. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone in the wider community for their continued efforts in allowing for accelerated scientific developments, and most importantly for supporting everyone affected both directly and indirectly.
