The combination of high-quality breast imaging and improved compliance with screening mammography guidelines has begun to alter the course of breast cancer and its mortality rates in the United States. Although film-screen mammography remains the foundation of breast imaging, other modalities such as ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear medicine, and digital mammography are now included in the radiologist’s armementarium to allow earlier detection and diagnosis of this all too common disease.
