Abstract

In this chapter we will discuss the appropriate imaging techniques for women at high risk for breast cancer as well as accepted timelines for imaging. Mammography is the only imaging technique that has been proven to decrease breast cancer mortality as a screening modality. Given the limitations of mammography, other imaging techniques are recommended for the woman at high risk. We will discuss the utility of ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as additional screening modalities. In addition emerging breast imaging technologies will be discussed.
