Breast cancer: Advancements in diagnosis
from Rosemary Sparacio
According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in U.S. women — 1 in 8 will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Breast cancer is the second-leading cause of death among women, with more than 40,000 deaths each year. One of the most important advances in breast cancer diagnosis comes from the strides made in mammography. Phase contrast X-ray imaging, ultra-high-field MRI scanners, ultrasound and combinations of such new advances has greatly improved routine screening and patient care.
