Special Issue "Breast Cancer Imaging and Therapy"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 1 April 2022.
In Canada, survival from breast cancer has steadily increased since 1989, and breast cancer mortality has decreased by 48% . While 82% of women with breast cancer are diagnosed at stage 1 or 2, there are still 18% who present at a late stage and 25% who develop metastatic disease. Improved survival has been achieved through early diagnosis of breast cancer with screening, allowing more effective and targeted treatments. Significant gaps remain, however, where an early diagnosis of breast cancer in certain populations is not achieved, including women with dense breasts, those of Black (African), Asian, Indigenous, and Hispanic ethnicities, women aged 40–49 years not included in screening mammography programs, women at high risk who are 30 years and older, and men. We invite submissions of manuscripts to summarize the latest evidence on early detection of breast cancer and highlight areas where this may be improved.
Original research and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following: radiology, epidemiology, ethicists, and public health.
