Title: Leveraging multiple imaging modalities to improve breast cancer detection, diagnosis, and management
Author: Baum, Karl
Abstract: Breast cancer is the most common malignant disease in women, and the second leading cause of cancer death among American women today [1]. The primary tool for detection and diagnosis of breast cancer is x-ray mammography, but it is hoped that additional information provided by Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) will provide a means to determine if a suspected lesion, seen in mammography, is malignant or not. The procedure may prevent a large number of retrospectively unnecessary breast biopsies, a surgical procedure, which can result in pain, bruising, and scaring, that is presently used to evaluate suspected breast lesions.
