There is an unstoppable tendency toward personalized medicine in order to achieve diagnostic and treatment, as well as a more effective monitoring for each patient. Currently, screening programs for breast cancer focus on image analysis of mammography, ultrasound, elastography, magnetic resonance imaging and tomosynthesis. The problem is, once the tumour has been diagnosed and given the high variability of clinical progressions, biomarkers that classify the type of cancer and predict their behaviour are truly lacking. The determination of such biomarkers in mammographic images is crucial for the clinical management of patients by allowing the improvement of both diagnosis and staging as assessment of survival, response to therapy and relapse prediction due to metastases. Personalized, fast and accurate biomarkers obtained from different imaging modalities assessment will provide relevant information for the subsequent treatment of patients, especially those with worse prognosis or risk of recurrence.
