Breast cancer is the foremost common cause of death in women, and its early diagnosis will help treat and increase patients’ survival. This review article aims to look at the studies on the recent findings of standard imaging techniques and their characteristics for breast cancer diagnosis as well as on the recent role of nanoparticles (NPs) that are used for breast cancer detection. Herein, a search was performed in the literature through scientific citation websites, including Google Scholar, PubMed, Scopus, and Web of Science, until May 2023. A comprehensive review of different imaging modalities and NPs for breast cancer diagnosis is given, and the successes, challenges, and limitations of these methods are discussed.
