Abstract

Evolution in breast imaging has dramatically changed and upgraded  by  wide variety of technologic advances from the early days of direct-exposure film mammography to xeromammography to screen-film mammography to the current era of full-field digital mammography and digital breast tomosynthesis. In early 1950 Mammography has been introduced along with the breast self examination. After two decades thermography and ultrasound examination  has been added in the breast imaging . From year 1990 to 2000 drastic technological advances, organized screening,  with  BI-RAD  classification introduced by  American College of Radiology Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System have helped to shape the specialty of breast imaging. With the development of digital mammography and tomosynthesis in 2020, breast ultrasonography and breast magnetic resonance imaging, both complementary to mammography,  has set new standard in diagnostic accuracy of breast  lesions.This  paper gives a quick insight  to the development of   breast imaging and reviews the evolution of breast imaging starting from a historical perspective and progressing to the present day.
