Analysis of results of the X-ray mammography in diagnostics on breast cancer

We examined 2,134 women; breast cancer was detected in 216. One hundred and forty cases were subjected to an in-depth analysis: stage I was detected in 25 patients, stage II in 60, stage III in 46 and stage IV in 9. In 5% of the cases, tumours were inpalpable and could be detected by X-ray only. In 8.7 of the cases, the multicentric nature of tumour growth was established. In 62% tumours were of mixed histological structure. Breast cancer recognition provided accurate diagnosis in 98%. Good diagnostic results are possible under special conditions in a mammology unit where a röntgenologist works in close contact with surgeons and morphologists. We perform all stages of diagnosis beginning with the clinical examination proceeding to special methods requiring X-ray control (paracentesis, ductography, pneumocystography, pre-operative marking of the breast and marking of the remote sectors of the breast).
