Modern Imaging Techniques in Diagnosis Staging and Follow-up of Cancer

The recent introduction of new techniques in medical imagery should lead to a comparison of their respective merits. As is often the case in medicine, the latest discovery tends to supplant the previous techniques, and it is only after some years that the advantages of the various methods may be weighed up. Unfortunately, the appearance of a new technique often leads doctors to confuse modernism with truth. This is why it would now seem interesting to take stock of the results obtained by new techniques in the diagnosis of most cancers, notably by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), and ultrasonography (US).
