Abstract

This publication contains an overview of the imaging techniques and the related technologies utilized in breast cancer diagnosis. It describes both those known for tens of years as well as the ones developed recently thanks to the new technological developments. An integration and coexistence of the diagnostic methods from classical mammography to the computerized laser mammography has become essential in order to cope with the requirements of early detection of breast tumours, which is a precondition of successful treatment and longer survival periods upon which patients rely.
