Breast Cancer Awareness Month October: Will imaging replace biopsies in cases of suspected breast cancer?

by Sel - Each year, approximately 2.8 million women have a mammography as part of the breast cancer screening program in Germany. In about 35,000 of these cases, the procedure reveals a suspicious finding that physicians follow up on by taking a tissue sample. Only half of these women, however, truly have breast cancer. Scientists from the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ), in collaboration with mammography screening units in Heidelberg and Mannheim, have now published the first data to suggest that in many cases, advanced diffusion-weighted MR imaging can help women avoid an unnecessary control biopsy. ...
