While mammograms are considered the gold standard of breast cancer detection, mammography has known limitations. Combining a blood-based approach with imaging would allow for more accurate and earlier detection of breast cancer. This would in turn provide a higher rate of survival and more certainty when for patients with difficult-to-interpret results.
There are clear limitations to breast imaging that must be fixed in order to ensure all patients are diagnosed as early and as accurately as possible. The five reasons listed above indicate that by thinking outside the box we can improve breast cancer detection. To combat these limitations of imaging, we need to add more tools, such as a liquid biopsy approach. By incorporating a liquid biopsy and allow for more accurate and earlier detection based on physiology as opposed to anatomy. This can be done by using innovative technologies and fresh ideas such as adding a liquid biopsy tool to the current standard-of-care.
