Breast Cancer: Pursuing State of the Art Care

Breast imaging is a dynamic field, with recent and upcoming innovations aimed at improving the morbidity and mortality associated with breast disease, most importantly, breast cancer. It plays an integral role in the detection and management of breast disease, using a multimodality approach, including x-ray, ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging, and nuclear medicine techniques. Breast imaging also encompasses image-guided procedures, performed both for the diagnosis and definitive management of breast abnormalities.
