The Third International Copenhagen Symposium on Detection of Breast Cancer afforded a further opportunity for scientists from all over the world to come together and present important papers con cerning breast cancer and early diagnostic procedures. The Sympo sium was an opportunity to learn from extensive screening proce dures carried out at outstanding centers in the United States, Sweden, the Netherlands, and England. Furthermore, the Sympo sium dealt with new modalities such as ultrasonography, magnifi cation techniques, and magnetic resonance; and very important contributions concerning self-examination, fine needle aspiration biopsy, and radiation risks were presented. A whole section was also dedicated to the highly important cooperation between radiologist, surgeon, and pathologist. It is our sincere hope that a study of the different aspects of breast cancer presented in this volume will encourage the reader to join in the struggle against this dreadful dis ease.
