Diagnostic techniques in breast cancer detection. Part II: Physical and Biopsy Methods

Abstract

This publication contains an overview of methods based on the principles of physics applied in breast cancer diagnosis. It refers both to those created de novo and those that have recently been updated, thanks to the revolutionary progress in digital, computer and information technologies. It also contains an overview of the biopsy techniques considered to be “the golden standard” in breast cancer diagnoses, as well as the latest ones, allowing to obtain ductal cells. An effort to develop new diagnostic methods, based on various fields of physics and integration of various diagnostic methods, needs to be made in order for medicine to cope with the requirements of early detection of breast tumours.
