  Breast cancer is the most common malignant neoplasm in female population. The complexity of early breast carcinoma diagnostics is conditioned by the variability of the breast structure during life, as well as cyclic, hormone conditioned changes. Today, the most important and the most widely applied radiological modality is mammography, which value has been proved by many studies. Up-to-date diagnostic algorithm also includes the breast evaluation by ultrasound with the probes of 7.5 and 10 MHz that provide for high tissue resolution. Magnetic resonance currently presents the most up-to-date visualization modality. Its basic technical possibilities: multiplanarity, high area, and tissue resolution combined with biological noninvasiveness, unambiguously make MR the most sensitive and the most specific radiological method for evaluation of the majority of organism regions.
