ConclusionA clearer understanding of the variable history of DCIS coupled with advances in genomic profiling of the disease holds the promise of reducing widespread over-treatment of this non-invasive cancer. Additionally, identification of higher risk of recurrence subsets may select patients for whom more aggressive treatment may be appropriate.

Our objective was to explore mammographic diagnostic efficacy in a country where breast cancer screening does not exist.Materials and MethodsTwo mammographic test sets were used: a typical screening (TS) and high-difficulty (HD) test set. Nonscreening (NS) radiologists (n = 11) read both test se...

Radiation oncologist Dr. Andrea McKee believes deaths from lung cancer — including those related to asbestos exposure — could be reduced significantly by increased utilization of early CT screening. McKee, chair of radiation oncology at Lahey Hospital and Medical Center in Burlington, Maine, has been a strong proponent of early screening for several years. “We could be saving tens of thousands of lives every year with this,” McKee told The Mesothelioma Center at “There is nothing else like it. The life-saving potential is the most important thing that has happened to cancer in my...

ConclusionsMammography images could be captured and quantified by radiomics, which offers a good diagnostic ability for benign and malignant breast tumors and provides complementary information to radiologists.

Conclusion: Ten percent of the standard dose of 18F-FDG (reduction of ≤90%) results in clinically acceptable PET image quality in time-of-flight PET/MRI. The calculated radiation exposure would be comparable to the effective dose of a single digital mammogram. A reduction of radiation burden to this level might justify partial-body examinations with PET/MRI for dedicated indications.

Conclusion: This study provides important perspectives on associations of BC screening behaviors and preventive life-style behaviors, especially walking. Future research should be conducted to better understand the association between BC screening and preventive life-style behaviors and to develop feasible interventions to improve BC screening behaviors among KA women, particularly elderly and physically inactive ones.

Authors: Gowri V, Valluvan KR, Chamundeeswari VV Abstract This paper addresses the automated detection of microcalcification clusters from mammogram images by enhanced preprocessing operations on digital mammograms for automated extraction of breast tissue from background, removing artefacts occurring during image registration using X-rays, followed by fractal analysis of suspicious regions. Identification of breast of either left or right and realigning them to a standard position forms a primitive step in preprocessing of mammograms. As the next step in the process, pectoral muscles are separated. Suspicious regi...
