Mammographic compression after breast conserving therapy: controlling pressure instead of force.

Abstract

PURPOSE X-ray mammography is the primary tool for early detection of breast cancer and for follow-up after breast conserving therapy (BCT). BCT-treated breasts are smaller, less elastic, and more sensitive to pain.
