CONCLUSION: By using a diverse dataset and comparing the diagnostic accuracy of three imaging modalities commonly used in breast cancer detection and diagnosis, this study also demonstrated that mammography, ultrasonography and MRI had different diagnostic performance in breast tumor identification. Among them, MRI yielded the highest performance even though the unexpected specificity may lead to over-diagnosis, and ultrosonography is slightly better than mammography.

CONCLUSION: Among the 607 tests performed, 81 were suspected of cancer (13.3%) for only 12 cancers confirmed (2.0%). Screening cancer exposes patients to several false positive tests. PMID: 30075951 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusions: Vacuum-assisted core needle biopsy is a minimally invasive technique used in diagnosing ADH. As the risk of breast malignancy underestimation is relatively high, open surgical biopsy remains the recommended procedure, especially in patients with lesions detected both in mammography and US examination. As we could not identify the factors that preclude cancer underestimation, all the women diagnosed with ADH should be informed about the risk of cancer underestimation. PMID: 30002750 [PubMed]

(University of California - San Francisco) Follow-up imaging for women with non-metastatic breast cancer varies widely across the country, according to a new study led by researchers at UC San Francisco. Some patients go without the annual mammograms that experts recommend, while others with the same cancer diagnosis receive full-body scans that expose them to significant amounts of radiation and are not recommended by experts.

ConclusionA SNB should become the standard after NACT if case of a cN0. If after NACT the PET CT has normalized, no ALND should be performed if the SN is negative.

Most breast biopsies are currently performed using ultrasound and handheld needles, guided by previously taken radiological images. The problem is that humans aren’t always perfect and what is imaged during an MRI scan or mammography may look d...

Patients are more  likelyto show up to an imaging appointment when it ’s scheduled within a week than when it’s planned at least six months in advance. Academic radiology units are losing approximately $1 million a year to patients missing medical imaging appointments. According to researchers from the University of Washington, the fees lost to no-shows amount to the purchase of one new 3T MR scanner every year.In their study published inCurrent Problems in Diagnostic Radiology, the group of researchers led by Rebecca J. Mieloszyk, PhD, evaluated a sample “average-sized, university-affiliated academi...
