Abstract An important limitation of conventional two-dimensional mammography is the overlap of dense breast tissue obscuring masses. Digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) has emerged as a mammographic technology that overcomes this limitation and is considered an overall better mammogram. DBT has been shown to detect significantly more breast cancer than conventional two-dimensional mammography, and to decrease the number of callbacks for diagnostic evaluation from screening mammography. Usually the callback evaluation is deemed to be overlap of tissue requiring no further management. DBT is used in the screening and...

This study evaluates the breast density in Indian population and its relationship with the age. We reviewed of all screening mammography examinations performed from May 2012 to January 2015 at our institute PGIMER, Chandigarh, INDIA. Descriptive analyses were used to examine the association between age and breast density. A total of 6132 screening mammograms were performed. Each subgroup categorized by decade of age. There was a significant inverse relationship between age and breast density (P

AbstractBackgroundScreening tests are generally not recommended in patients with advanced cancer and limited life expectancy. Nonetheless, screening mammography still occurs and may lead to follow-up testing.ObjectiveWe assessed the frequency of downstream breast imaging following screening mammography in patients with advanced colorectal or lung cancer.DesignPopulation-based study.ParticipantsThe study included continuously enrolled female fee-for-service Medicare beneficiaries ≥65 years of age with advanced colorectal (stage IV) or lung (stage IIIB-IV) cancer reported to a Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Resu...

We examined associations between magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) breast-tissue composition at age 21 years and prospectively-collected measures of body size and composition from birth to early adulthood, and markers of puberty (all standardized), in a sample of 500 nulliparous women from a pre-birth cohort of children born in Avon, England, in 1991-1992 and followed up to 2011-2014. Linear models were fitted to estimate relative change in MRI % water, which is equivalent to mammographic % density, associated with one standard deviation increase in the exposure of interest. In mutually-adjusted analyses, MRI % water was po...
