Abstract

This poster considers these points: DOT taken along x-ray mammogram provide valuable functional information, X-ray mammography only gives structural information hard to distinguish between benign and malignant masses, Oxygen consumption (OC) and blood flow (F) contrasts observed between malignant and normal tissue[3, 4], Blood flow, oxygen saturation(SO2), water and lipid distributions could specify the degree of malignancy of a tumor, Physiological changes in the breast due to mammographic compression are significant and should be taken into account[2].
