Abstract
Since failure to biopsy a malignant mass during a relatively early stage of its development will result in a severely shortened life span for the patient, breast imaging techniques must be capable not only of detecting a mass, but of differentiating between the image characteristics of a benign and a malignant tumor. Ideally, the applied technique should be equally capable when used to examine the young breast and the older breast. The specific advantages and disadvantages of x-ray mammography and of ultrasound visualization, as well as the rationale of balancing the disadvantages of one technique with the advantages of the other, are discussed in this presentation.
