Caption: Breast cancer. Coloured magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of a coronal section through breasts of a 53 year old woman, showing cancer (green). A malignant adenoma cancer is seen at right. The breasts are red. Blood vessels appear as both yellow lines and white dots, due to the injection of an intravenous contrast medium into the bloodstream. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women. Most deaths from breast cancer occur when the cancer is not detected early enough and it spreads to other parts of the body. MRI scanning uses radio waves and a powerful magnetic field to create "slice" images though the body.
