Abstract:

Breast cancer is the second most common female malignancy in the United States. The ability to detect malignancies in their earliest stages is of tremendous importance. Early detection has been shown to increase likelihood of survival 1, 2 and to reduce the risk of disease recurrence 3 - 6. However early detection continues to be a significant diagnostic challenge and thus remains the focus of attention of a number of medical research groups.
