BOSTON (CBS) – More than 40% of women in the United States have dense breasts which can make it hard to find small cancers on a mammogram, but researchers are testing a new technology that could help. It is a 3-dimensional ultrasound called SoftVue. During the exam, the patient lies on her stomach, and her breast is placed into a warm water bath. In two to four minutes, the machine creates a 3D image using sound waves. SoftVue exam (WBZ-TV) There is no radiation and no compression of the breast. While SoftVue probably would not replace a woman’s annual mammogram, it might be used in conjunction with mammography...

Conclusion: High-density foci in axillary lymph nodes on mammography can be evidence of calcifications or metal deposits and can be the manifestation of a benign or malignant process. Thus, this finding may warrant additional diagnostic workup (including mammography, ultrasound, and possibly biopsy) and correlation with clinical history. PMID: 29230131 [PubMed]

All women aged between 50 and 70 are offered screening for breast cancer. But how effective is it at stopping deaths – and might it actually do more harm than good?Many of us will know someone who had breast cancer found at screening. The cancer seen on a mammogram may have been microscopic, so early in its malignant life that it hadn ’t broken through the wall of its milk duct. Thank heavens, then, for breast screening, which is offered to all women between 50 and 70 in the UK and other countries. It is promoted enthusiastically as lifesaving, but does it deliver on its promise? And are the randomised con...

This study aims to develop and test a new imaging marker-based short-term breast cancer risk prediction model. An age-matched dataset of 566 screening mammography cases was used. All "prior" images acquired in the two screening series were negative, while in the "current" screening images, 283 cases were positive for cancer and 283 cases remained negative. For each case, two bilateral cranio-caudal view mammograms acquired from the "prior" negative screenings were selected and processed by a computer-aided image processing scheme, which segmented the entire breast area into 9 strip-based local...
