Application of Breast Imaging in the Entire Spectrum of Breast Cancer Management




          Breast imaging is playing a very important role in the entire spectrum, from screening & detection, diagnosis & pre-operative staging, therapy selection & monitoring, and surveillance. Breast MRI is a clinically approved imaging modality and has well-defined indications. Our center has published many papers in breast MRI research, and contributed to establishing these clinic indications. Very recently, breast density is proven to be valuable and recommended to be incorporated in risk management- either for asymptomatic women or for breast cancer survivors. MRI is known as the best modality for measuring volumetric breast density.
