EIT, in the context of false positives in mammography is considered where repeated negative results of biopsies can lead patients to avoid future mammograms. Our approach is to consider the conditional probabilities associated with use of EIT in conjunction to mammography, not for increasing the overall rate of detection of breast cancer, but for maintaining the best possible rate of cancer detection with fewer biopsies.
