Breast carcinoma is the most common neoplasm in the female population of Croatia. The main imaging breast diagnostic modalities are mammography, ultrasound, and magnetic resonance. This paper reviews radiological guidelines for breast diagnostic and interventional procedures, and monitoring of breast cancer patients in the Republic of Croatia. An algorithm for radiological assessment is presented for symptomatic patients, pregnant and lactating women, patients with average and increased risk of developing breast cancer, and patients with radiological findings of mastitis.
