Breast tissue malignancy is one among the most common varieties of cancer found worldwide. The number of incidents has been increasing gradually with time. Mammography scanning technique has been found to be one of the trusted methods to detect the lesions in the breast. Although mammography works almost accurately, it is a very invasive and uncomfortable scanning technique the patients have to go through. Young women having very thick breasts are more likely to get a false positive result. To reduce and eradicate all these discrepancies, scientists have been trying to develop and discover certain devices and scanning techniques that would be more accurate and sensitive than the mammograms and will overcome its shortcomings altogether. A number of different scanning techniques and procedures including Sonography, Magnetic Resonance Imaging and others are being used presently for breast cancer screening. This review aims to list and describe all such available technicalities and procedures for imaging along with screening of the breast cancer patients.
