Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Breast cancer remains the leading cause of cancer death for women worldwide. In our profession, multimodality represents a real turning point in the diagnostic management of breast cancer: new diagnostic procedures such as automatized 3D breast ultrasonography(ABUS), breast tomosynthesis (DBT), contrast-enhanced spectral mammography (CESM), and diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) sequences in Magnetic Resonance are opening novel and promising scenarios as personalized and precision medicine acquire greater importance.

Moreover, artificial intelligence and radiomics are increasingly applied in this diagnostic field, expanding the possibility of excellent results while reducing diagnostic errors. Interventional radiology has also made exceptional progress in recent years: the role of excisional biopsy (VAE) for low-grade breast lesions could indeed prevent surgery for many patients.

For these reasons, this Special Issue aims to present and discuss new breast imaging modalities, especially those dealing with DBT, ABUS, CESM, DWI techniques, radiomics and artificial intelligence. Articles on the new applications of breast biopsy procedures, especially vacuum assisted ones, are also welcome.

Dr. Enrico Cassano and Dr. Luca Nicosia
