  Breast conserving therapy (BCT) refers to breast conserving surgery (BCS), followed by moderate-dose radiation therapy to eradicate any microscopic residual breast disease. BCS can almost be considered the gold standard of early stage invasive breast cancer treatment, allowing to achieve adequate surgical margins with an acceptable cosmetic outcome. Role of radiologists in breast cancer management was limited for many years to suggesting an initial diagnosis and detecting loco-regional recurrence after treatment by mammogram and breast ultrasonography. The development of the Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System (BIRADS) of the American College of Radiology (ACR) helps to change Radiologist’s role through many factors: standardized the description and recommended management of breast lesions. BIRADS has increased the radiopathological correlation of radiologists’ reports, improving the reports’ reliability, and has also established a common language for all of the physicians involved in multidisciplinary breast disease management team, favoring agreement on decisions, and Furthermore, advances in breast magnetic resonance imaging; functional MRI and image-guided interventional procedures have increased our responsibility in the therapeutic decision-making process. The role of Radiologist in BCT:I- Accurate and early diagnosis of breast cancer and staging.
