The efficiency of electrical impedance tomography, a new method of breast cancer diagnosis, is considered in this work. A total of 117 female patients (apparently healthy, patients with mastopathy, patients with benign tumors, patients with breast cancer) were tested. The method was implemented using an electrical impedance computer mammograph with special 5.6 software version. Its efficiency was estimated to be 87.39%. Of 75 patients with breast cancer, 96% were found to have degree III of risk of disease progression; 4%, degree II of disease progression risk. Additional examination was recommended. Electrical impedance mammography was demonstrated to be a noninvasive, safe, comfortable, rapid, and informative method of diagnosis.
