Review evidence around tomosynthesis, ultrasonography, MRI, and molecular-based imaging as adjuvants to mammography in patients with breast density.Cancer Control: Journal of the Moffitt Cancer Center
Conclusion We believe that these results will shed light on current investigations and treatment of this rare entity.
g Breast cancer is the leading cause of death among females, early diagnostic methods with suitable treatments improve the 5-year survival rates significantly. Microwave breast imaging has been reported as the most potential to become the alternative or additional tool to the current gold standard X-ray mammography for detecting breast cancer. The microwave breast image quality is affected by the microwave sensor, sensor array, the number of sensors in the array and the size of the sensor. In fact, microwave sensor array and sensor play an important role in the microwave breast imaging system. Numerous microwave biosen...
Conclusions While the mortality rate for breast cancer is lower among younger women, the NHB:NHW disparities, as measured by rate ratios, are most pronounced in these age groups. Given the absence of available data regarding incidence, stage and subtypes, further research is necessary and such research is important, given the possible policy implications of these results with respect to screening guidelines and coverage for mammography and breast cancer treatment in particular for younger NHB women.

Conclusion: Exhaustive test results suggest that the ADBMEDUTMF algorithm exhibits very good noise suppression characteristics with minimum error and higher information preservation capability even at very high noise densities in different mammogram images. This makes the algorithm suitable for low level processing.
This Practice Pearl describes an approach to screening mammography for average-risk women that encourages the use of shared decision-making that addresses benefits (early diagnosis and decreased mortality) and potential harms (false positives and overdiagnosis/overtreatment) in determining screening mammography initiation, frequency, and duration for women at average risk of breast cancer.
Aspire HD (for FDR-1000AWS) The Fujifilm Digital Mammography System, Aspire HD (FDR MS-l000), generates full-field digital mammography images that can, as other full-field digital mammography systems, be used for screening and diagnosis of breast cancer and is intended for use in the same clinical applications as traditional screen-film mammography systems.
Personalized breast cancer screening has so far been economically evaluated under the assumption of full screening adherence. This is the first study to evaluate the effects of nonadherence on the evaluation and selection of personalized screening strategies.
(German Cancer Research Center (Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum, DKFZ)) Enhancing the diagnosis of breast cancer is the stated goal of a research team at the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) in Heidelberg. The scientists have combined an advanced method of diffusion-weighted MR imaging with intelligent image analysis methods to detect malignant changes in tissues. This method may help avoid many control biopsies following suspicious findings from mammography screening. This advancement holds promise for substantial improvements in the diagnosis of breast cancer.
This article reviews the impact of MR imaging in different settings on medical oncology decision-making in patients with breast cancer.
