For most of the 200,000 women in the United States diagnosed with breast cancer each year, medical imaging is the entry point into the disease. Yet, rarely does a woman get to see her M.R.I. or get a sense of the shape or physicality of the malignancy inside her. Research suggests that tumor visualization can be an important aspect of dealing with the aftermath of cancer, with positive psychological and possibly physiological effects on patients.
