Trials of scan that could detect breast cancer earlier

1 in 8 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in the UK. Currently, women have mammograms or ultrasound scans, but these can miss cancer in many cases, particularly in younger women. Trials of a new technique, called multiparametric MRI, which is widely used across Europe and the US, are due to begin in the UK and it is hoped that it will allow breast cancer to be detected earlier.
