Breast Cancer Imaging

Breast Cancer is the leading cause of death in women in the United States. Early detection of breast cancer through mammographic screening has decreases 30% breast cancer mortality since 1989.Mammography is considered the ‘gold standard’ in the evaluation of the breast lesions from an imaging perspective. Improvements over the last decade in the quality of performance and the reporting of mammography studies are the most important advances in breast imaging.

In breast ultrasound, the sound waves are used to create images of the breast. It is often used as a follow-up test after an abnormal finding on a mammogram or clinical breast exam. Breast ultrasound can tell the difference between a liquid-filled cyst and a solid mass (which may or may not be cancer).

Breast MRI uses magnetic fields to create an image of the breast, sometimes it can find cancers in dense breasts that are not seen on mammograms. It is more invasive than a mammogram.
