Mammography: A Very Brief History

Breast cancer isn't new, but salomon shoes outlet the means we use to detect and study it are. Mammography, the science used to examine the breast, only began to develop its roots in the last century. Since then, the means and methods of detecting cancerous tumors have only kept changing.

It wasn't until 1895 that x-rays were salomon speedcross 4 gtx developed. In 1913, a German surgeon by the name of Alfred Salomon became the first person to try and visualize breast cancer through the use of radiology. Salomon used what was the era's conventional x-ray machine to look over specimens from more than 3,000 mastectomies that he had performed. From this, he was able to get a better understanding of what was or wasn't normal in breast tissue, thus establishing himself as the father of modern mammography. Salomon's research, however, was only the beginning of the field's development.

In 1930, Dr. Stafford L. Warren provided salomon speedcross 4 womens a breakthrough in the field. Stafford's research supported the effectiveness of mammography as a diagnostic tool for breast cancer and further developed a stereoscopic technique for the field. Warren's research further found that a side by side comparison of the left and right breasts could do even more to detect abnormalities, making diagnosing the disease even simpler. In 1949, Uruguayan doctor Raul Leborgne developed the compression method. A radiologist by trade, Leborgne invented a device that held the breast flat between a cone and pad while an x-ray was taken. This method allowed the x-ray to produce a better quality image overall, making the diagnosis process simpler and more accurate. Furthermore, Leborgne was the first to suggest looking for micro calcification in the breast, which refers to the appearance of small white dots that may be an early indicator of cance

The next big break in mammography came in the salomon speedcross 4 mens late 1950s, when Houston radiologist Robert Egan introduced the use of a fine-grained screen and industrial film to produce clearer images. With his team at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Egan examined images from the breasts of 1,000 women who weren't displaying any obvious signs of cancer. Through closer examination, Egan and the other researchers found 238 cancerous masses among the results.
