Special Issue "Breast Imaging"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2018)
Breast imaging is one of the most exciting subspecialties in Radiology. Although x-rays were first used to image the breasts in 1913, Dr. Robert Egan developed the first mammograms using what he termed the “Egan technique” in the 1950s at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. In the 60 years since Dr. Egan’s work, Breast Imaging has grown, evolved, and advanced to include other modalities, technologies, and techniques.
The Special Issue on "Breast Imaging" aims at bringing together a collection of recent research and review articles appealing to residents as well as seasoned radiologists. Submissions will be invited covering the basics of breast imaging for the detection of breast malignancy; newer technologies used in detection and diagnosis; and interventional techniques.
Prof. Dr. Tanya W. Moseley
