Detection and diagnosis of breast lesions: Performance evaluation of digital breast tomosynthesis and magnetic resonance mammography

Conclusion Both MRM and DBT provide better performance than classic DM. Adding either of these modalities to the classic examination enhances diagnosis and precise disease distribution.

While there has been controversy over when and how often women should be screened for breast cancer using mammograms, studies consistently show that screening can lead to earlier detection of the disease, when it’s more treatable. So improving how effectively mammograms can detect abnormal growths that could be cancerous is a priority in the field. AI could play a role in accomplishing that—computer-based machine learning might help doctors to read mammograms more accurately. In a study published Jan. 1 in Nature, researchers from Google Health, and from universities in the U.S. and U.K., report on an AI model ...

Dense breast tissue not only increases a woman ’s risk of developing cancer, it also makes it more difficult for physicians to identify possible tumors. However, emerging research from University Medical Center Utrecht in the Netherlands has found that implementing magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) screening in addition to mammography can be a more effective cancer diagnosis method in patients with dense breast tissue than mammography alone. Over the course of two years, the group of researchers led by Carla van Gils evaluated 40,000 women with immense dense breast tissue with mammography and 4,783 were designate...

AbstractClinicians experience various situations, such as peer consultation or tumor boards, in which they need to access and view radiologic studies without a full radiologic workstation. Mobile MIM is a diagnostic medical imaging device on the Apple App Store that is FDA-approved and can meet the portable needs of clinicians. The goal of the app is to give physicians the opportunity to visualize scans from multiple modalities on a single iOS mobile device. The intended uses include reviewing complex aspects of radiation treatment plans and analyzing medical images from a wide array of modalities. The key limitation is in...

Shah Islam Hugh Harvey By HUGH HARVEY, MBBS and SHAH ISLAM, MBBS AI in medical imaging entered the consciousness of radiologists just a few years ago, notably peaking in 2016 when Geoffrey Hinton declared radiologists’ time was up, swiftly followed by the first AI startups booking exhibiting booths at RSNA. Three years on, the sheer number and scale of AI-focussed offerings has gathered significant pace, so much so that this year a decision was made by the RSNA organising committee to move the ever-growing AI showcase to a new space located in the lower level of the North Hall. In some ways it made sense to ...

ConclusionSurvival of fat cell grafts and the breast lipofilling complication depends on the techniques used to harvest and then injecting the fat into the receiver site. However, the preliminary results should be confirmed in larger series, and the radiographic follow-up of women undergoing breast lipofilling should be standardized to ensure reproducibility and improve patient safety.Level of evidenceLevel V, therapeutic study.

CONCLUSION: Imaging tools used to evaluate breast cancer can help determine whether distant metastasis has occurred and in rare cases can help discover other primary cancers. The patient in this case study was 1 of the few patients with an incidental finding of a second nonmetastatic primary malignancy in the lung detected using PET-CT. The risks associated with advanced imaging include exposing patients to additional tests and potentially invasive procedures based on the results. However, in some instances, imaging results can alter the treatment plan and increase survival rates. Further empirical research and case studie...
