Breast imaging is one of the most exciting subspecialties in radiology. The need for personalized medicine has changed our vision of the field, giving even more importance to multimodality and to the integration of both Artificial Intelligence and human resources. Consequently, evaluating the application of radiomics could be of particular interest. In addition, examining the real impact of the most recent advancements of standard imaging techniques, such as digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) and automated breast ultrasound (ABUS), on breast cancer prevention could be incredibly challenging.
Contrast-enhanced spectral mammography (CESM) could be considered a true alternative to the most expensive magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). On the other side, the evaluation of fast MRI could have a great impact on breast cancer prevention, especially in young women with dense breast.
This Special Issue aims to present and discuss the most recent advancements in breast imaging. Original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) all the aforementioned topics. Articles on breast cancer screening programs are welcome, especially those dealing with DBT and ABUS. Finally, articles on breast interventional radiology, with particular regard to vacuum-assisted biopsy or excision system, are also welcome.
I look forward to receiving your contributions.
