The author, who has already written an excellent book on conventional mammography, based this monograph on his experience in xeroradiography of the breast. For those who are not familiar with this technique, xeroradiography employs the use of an x-ray beam (about the same or slightly less than that used in conventional mammography) on a charged xeroradiographic plate to produce an image that is then transferred to paper for a permanent record. The information acquired by this method differs somewhat from conventional radiography since the xeroradiography technique produces greater contrast enhancement than conventional mammography. The monograph is especially timely because the Xerox Corporation has recently developed a compact unit for the purposes of breast xeroradiography, which is now available commercially.
Several early brief chapters dwell on historical and technical aspects; the major portion of the book is oriented clinically, with a concise discussion of first benign, then malignant breast conditions.
