Abstract

Breast imaging is targeted at two main indications: screening for breast cancer and assessment of suspected pathology. Even though two view mammography is the standard tool for screening of breast cancer, the sensitivity of 2D mammography varies widely and is dependent on a number factors [1]. Beyond 2D mammography, a number of new advances have emerged in breast imaging with prospects for increasing early detection of breast cancer.
