Chapters are included on types of breast cancer, its prevention, diagnosis, and treatments; with individual chapters on topics that include screening of high-risk patients, radiation oncology, reconstructive surgery, cost-effective staging, adjuvant systemic therapy, and surveillance and detection of recurrence. Jacobs (surgery, Johns Hopkins U. School of Medicine, Baltimore) and Finlayson (surgery, U. of Colorado School of Medicine, Aurora) have edited the 24 chapters, written by 43 specialists, of whom 41 are in the US, and two are in Taiwan and Germany."
