Breast Cancer: The Importance of Early Diagnosis

Over 300,000 women each year discover they are suffering from breast cancer. Today, early diagnosis of the tumour makes it possible to have a full recovery. I.e. timely and accurate diagnoses made through specific examinations. In this regard, Prevenzione e Diagnostica per Immagini provides truly essential support. In particular, for mammography – breast radiology assessment and fundamental method for diagnosing disease even in the pre-clinical phase – low X-ray doses are used. For the breast evaluation, this may be combined with an ultrasound scan to support the radiography examination. In this regard, it is essential to store the images in order to make important comparisons in subsequent checks. The age for having the first breast examination when no symptoms are present and as a precaution, ranges from 35 to 40 years.
