Breast diaphanoscopic semeiology

C. Di Maggio, L. Pescarini, A. Cavallo

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The authors briefly describe the technique of diaphanoscopic examination of the breast and illustrate the normal and pathological findings. Since the diaphanoscopic images can only give a rough, inadequate and not often pathognomonic idea of the symptomatology of a given condition, the pathological symptomatogy is recorded by illustrating the diaphanoscopic pictures of various mammary conditions. The authors place mammary diaphanoscopy in a role as a complementary test in studying breast diseases, since the information provided by this technique needs to be integrated with the clinical findings and possibly with mammography.
