Caption: False-colour enhanced mammogram of breast cancer. At centre right, a cancerous tumour appears as a yellow core with radiating contours of colour. The connective tissue of the breast and the milk ducts appear as a fibrous white background. Mammography is a special X-ray technique that is used to visualize soft tissues of the breast as a means of screening women for breast cancer, and to detect tumours at an early stage.
