A result of expanding variety of electronic mammograms and the arrival of latest types of three-d x-ray and other kinds of clinical imaging, mammography is present process a dramatic switch. to satisfy their obligations, scientific physicists needs to consistently renew their wisdom of advances in scientific imaging or radiation treatment, and needs to be ready to operate on the intersection of those fields.

However, CE-MRI has several drawbacks. Although it is extremely sensitive (approaching 100% for invasive cancer), the foremost drawback is the specificity. The specificity of MRI ranges from 37% to 96% depending on the indication, and this variable specificity greatly limits its use. Particularly in young women, MRI has difficulty discriminating between cancers and benign lesions such as fibroadenomas, adenosis, or even hormone-induced enhancement of normal parenchyma. As of yet, there is a lack of standardized protocol interpretation guidelines, so there can be great variations in interpretation between radiologists and between institutions.
More than 500,000 breast biopsies are performed in the United States each year; 75% to 80% are benign. The reason for this high use of biopsies in the United States is not surprising when one realizes that the failure to diagnose breast cancer has led malpractice claim lists in the United States for several years. Evaluation History The first question to ask a patient presenting with a breast mass (or derive from the chart) is her age. Breast masses are different entities in women younger than 30, between 31 and 50, or older than 50 years old.
Stereotactic biopsy can also be done upright with equipment added onto existing mammographic equipment; however, there is more patient movement and may be increased vasovagal reactions. Initial scout images are obtained and the radiologist uses these to determine the lesion position in the x- and y-axes and the shortest skin to lesion distance. Stereotactic images are then obtained 15 degrees from midline in both the positive and negative directions. By calculating the shift of the lesion on these images from the midline location, the radiologist can determine the depth of the lesion.
