This document is an update of the previous RCR’s Guidance on Screening and Symptomatic Breast Imaging, Second Edition, which is now withdrawn, but does not include guidance on topics already included in the Best practice diagnostic guidelines for patients presenting with breast symptoms from the Department of Health.

The document is provided for radiologists and other members of breast teams providing diagnostic, treatment and follow-up services for patients with symptomatic breast problems. Guidance on the role of imaging in breast cancer screening is also included.
