Breast Cancer Detection

Mammograms? Thermographs? MRIs with differential? Digital Mammograms?

Despite the latest study results, he said, "it's still more important who's reading the picture than whether it was done on film screen or digital."

Here is my order:
  1. Thermographs--no radiation so no causation of cancer if tendency.
  2. MRIs with Differential--if you have a family history of breast cancer, also no radiation.
  3. Digital Mammograms--better for young women, have radiation.
  4. Old-fashioned Mammograms--radiation.
However, skill of imaging interpretor is most important of all!
