Conclusion Statistically significant equivalence was shown with an equivalence margin of 0.12 percentage points for cancer detection rate and with an equivalence margin of 0.40 percentage points for specificity. A marked patient dose savings in grid-less acquisition of up to 36% compared to grid-based acquisition was achieved. It can be concluded that grid-less acquisition with software scatter correction is an alternative to grid-based acquisition in mammography.

When we go to the deli, we expect to take a number and wait in line. Accomplishing any task at the department of motor vehicles can be an ordeal of waiting and then being herded out the door. This is part of life in American society. However, it should not be part of your health care. Patients need personalized attention and they need a health care team that listens to them, no matter who is telling them to step up the pace. Sure, if pushed I can see ten patients an hour. But, I don’t want to and no doctor should be forced to. For one thing, patients are living longer with more chronic diseases than ever before. And ...

AbstractEarly automatic breast cancer detection from mammograms is based on the extraction of lesions, known asmicrocalcifications (MCs). This paper proposes a new and simple system formicrocalcification detection to assist in early breast cancer detection. This work uses the two most recognized public mammogram databases, MIAS and DDSM. We are introducing a MC detection method based on (1) Beucher gradient for detection ofregions of interest (ROIs), (2) an annulus model for extraction of few and effective features from candidates to MCs, and (3) one classification stage with two different classifiers,k Nearest Neighbor (K...

Authors: Turhan E, Yasli G Abstract OBJECTIVE: The present study was performed to detect cancer risk of the midwifes and nurses playing central role in raising awareness in the society using Gail's model. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Sample of the present cross sectional study consists of 750 volunteer midwifes and nurses in 2016. Breast cancer risk was calculated using the Gail Risk Assessment Tool. Perceived and calculated risk levels were compared. Descriptive statistics and Chi-Square analysis, t-test, Multivariate Linear Regression Analysis, the Logistic Regression Analysis were conducted. RESULTS: A mean of...

We report a case of a 58-year-old male diagnosed with myofibroblastoma using mammography, ultrasound, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), as well as present a review of the literature. The pathological diagnosis was myofibroblastoma with spindle cell neoplasm with immunoreactivity. Myofibroblastoma is a rare benign disease and there is a lack of reports of multimodality imaging of this disease. We review the imaging features of this rare disease across multiple imaging modalities with pathological correlation, and provide current treatment recommendations as well.
