State-of-the-Art in Integrated Breast Imaging

Description

Breast imaging is one of the last tools of the clinical diagnostic based on a personalized diagnosis and treatment not only of the disease, but also of the patient. A female patient suffering from breast disease requires a dedicated integrated imaging, preferably conducted by specialized medical and paramedical staff.

Breast imaging includes a wide range of consolidated and new techniques, such as digital 2D/3D mammography, contrast enhanced mammography, manual or automatized ultrasonography, high frequency ultrasonography probes, and breast MRI. The availability of interventional devices allow a complete and exhaustive diagnosis with less invasive procedures.

We solicit high quality original research articles as well as review articles focused on the role of diagnostic imaging in breast imaging to realize a full set of malignant and high risk diseases.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Update on digital mammography
  • Update on digital breast tomosynthesis and tomo-biopsy
  • Update on contrast-enhanced spectral mammography
  • Update on breast ultrasound and automated breast ultrasound system
  • Update on high frequency ultrasonography and breast application
  • Update on breast MRI
