Abstract

Although mammography is the mainstay of early breast cancer detection, it has known limitations, particularly in women with dense breasts. As a result, additional imaging modalities, including ultrasound and contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging, are also being used to supplement mammography in the early detection of occult breast cancer. This article reviews the indications and efficacy of mammography, ultrasound, and magnetic resonance imaging as both screening and diagnostic tools.
