Abstract

Breast cancer is the most typical variety of cancer in women worldwide. Mammography is the “gold standard” for the analysis of the breast from an imaging perspective. Altogether, the techniques used within the management of cancer in all stages are multiple biomedical imaging. Imaging as a very important part of cancer clinical protocols can offer a range of knowledge regarding morphology, structure, metabolism, and functions. Supported by relevant literature, this text provides an outline of the previous and new modalities employed in the sector of breast imaging. Any progress in technology can result in increased imaging speed to satisfy physiological processes necessities. One of the problems within the designation of breast cancer is sensitivity limitation. To overcome this limitation, complementary imaging examinations are used that historically include screening, ultrasound, MRI, etc.
