CONCLUSION: Preoperative CBUS is effective and most beneficial with women presenting ACR C/D breast density. Given its impact on decreasing future morbidity, its routine use should be considered to improve quality healthcare for women diagnosed with breast cancer.

As artificial intelligence tools have been invading more or less every area of healthcare, we made a list to keep track of the top smart algorithms aiming for better diagnostics, more sophisticated patient care or further sighted predictions of diseases. Does A.I. beat doctors? Only if you lived under a rock for the last couple of years, could you not have heard about artificial intelligence. Some might have even come across the spread and potential of A.I. in healthcare. Not only smart algorithms themselves but also the hype around A.I. has grown immensely, thus every time a new study about deep learning or machine...

The detection and localization of imaging biomarkers correlating with disease status is important for initial diagnosis, assessment of treatment response and follow-up examinations. Spiculation patterns of lung nodules in lung CT scans (Zwirewich et  al., 1991), microcalcification in X-ray mammography images for breast screening (Wang et al., 2014), or macular fluid in OCT scans of the retina (Schmidt-Erfurth et al., 2018) are examples of imaging biomarkers used in clinical routine. Training of highly accurate deep learning methods for the i dentification of imaging biomarkers has shown promising results rea...

Authors: D'Angelo A, Rinaldi P, Belli P, D'Amico R, Carlino G, Grippo C, Giuliani M, Orlandi A, Infante A, Manfredi R Abstract OBJECTIVE: We investigated the accuracy of Automated Breast Volume Scanner (ABVS) compared to handheld ultrasound (HHUS) for monitoring tumor response to neoadjuvant treatment (NAT) in breast cancer (BC). PATIENTS AND METHODS: All the patients submitted to biopsy in our Institution, from January 2017 to May 2017, proven invasive BC and eligible for NAT, were enrolled in this prospective study. The participants underwent ABVS, HHUS, dynamic contrast-enhanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging (D...

QT Ultrasound said today that it is launching a chain of commercial mammography scanning centers using its radiation and compression-free breast imaging technology. The Novato, Calif.-based company said the chain will function under the moniker QTbreasthealth, and will provide women a “unique spa-like, patient-centric environment.” The company has already opened locations in Novato, Walnut Creek, Calif. and Grand Rapids, Mich. “We are thrilled to be on the forefront of this evolution in breast imaging. The QTbreasthealth experience is different than what women are used to. No compression means they get a ...

Very often I encounter women who are far more worried about breast cancer than they are about heart disease. But women have a greater risk of dying from heart disease than from all cancers combined. This is true for women of all races and ethnicities. Yet only about 50% of women realize that they are at greater risk from heart disease than from anything else. Currently in the US, three million women are living with breast cancer, which causes one in 31 deaths. Almost 50 million women have cardiovascular disease, which encompasses heart disease and strokes and causes one in three deaths. Here’s what’s reall...
