This 5-minute video demonstrates one method for performing a breast examination.
This method uses the “Vertical Strip” technique. There are some reasons to believe that this technique is superior to other techniques of breast examination. Studies have shown that medical students trained in this technique will find more breast lumps in manikins than while using other techniques (such as the “Circle of Circles” technique). However, human studies (not manikins) have not yet confirmed these results.
