This chapter discusses special screening situations, predominantly on existing evidence, although some of these situations are not included in the protocols already established. To fill the gaps left by the current guidelines, members of the American College of Radiology (ACR) and the Society of Breast Imaging (SBI) gathered to define recommendations on the multiple modalities of image, based, whenever possible, on published scientific data or on the consensus of specialists of these societies (Table 1).
