X‐Ray mammography is the principal technique for breast cancer screening in clinical practice. However, X‐ray mammography presents different drawbacks showing that alternative technologies are desirable. For example, the difficulty in detecting the breast tumors at the earlier stage, the destructive effects of the ionizing X‐rays on the irradiated tissues, low efficiency in dense breasts and with cancer near the chest wall. Other minor but still negative aspects are also the discomfort due to the breast compression and the expensive costs .
