Potential role of magnetic resonance imaging and other modalities in ductal carcinoma in situ detection. Magnetic resonance imaging clinics of North America Ikeda, D. M., Birdwell, R. L., Daniel, B. L. 2001; 9 (2): 345-?


Ductal Carcinoma In Situ (DCIS) is the earliest form of ductal cancer, with a high rate of care if treated early. This article outlines the use of breast imaging in DCIS diagnosis, including mammography, MR imaging, and nuclear medicine studies. While MR imaging and nuclear medicine show great promise in DCIS diagnosis, mammography remains the mainstay of DCIS detection by the presence of microcalcifications in early tumors on the mammogram.
