Abstract: 
Breast cancer is a heterogeneous disease, observed traditionally by morphology and protein expression but, more recently with the advent of modern molecular technologies, at the genomic and transcriptomic level. This review describes the association between the different molecular subtypes with the histologic subtypes of breast cancer alongside some of their major genomic characteristics and illustrates how these subtypes may affect the appearance of tumors on imaging studies. The authors aim to show how molecular stratification can be used to augment traditional methods to improve our understanding of breast cancers and their clinical management.
