ConclusionsPerformance screening measures are negatively affected by breast density falling to a lower sensitivity and PPV, and higher interval cancer rate as breast density increases. Particularly women aged 60-69 years with>75% glandular breasts had the worst results and therefore may be candidates for screening using other technologies.
No matter how long I deal with periodic blood tests, abdominal CTs and mammograms, they always trigger a huge wave of ‘ scanxiety. ’
Breast cancer incidence increases from the age of 30 years. As this age range coincides with that in which women usually pursue pregnancy, undergoing medical examinations for conditions such as breast cancer is a concern, especially when pregnancy is uncertain during the first eight weeks. Moreover, in this age range, breast often exhibits a high density, thus compromising diagnosis. For such density, digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) provides a more accurate diagnosis than 2D mammography given its higher sensitivity and specificity.

This study investigates the impact of educational intervention based on the integrated behavioral model on breast cancer screening behavior in women in Karaj City, 2016.Methods: This semi ‑experimental study was conducted on 138 women who were attended to health centers in Mohammad Shahr city. The samples were selected using cluster sampling and were randomly divided into two groups, experimental and control group. Data gathering tool was a four‑part questionnaire (demographic ch aracteristics, knowledge, Champion’s Health Belief Scale, subjective norms).

Abstract Although annual MRI-screening has improved early diagnosis of hereditary breast-cancer, fast growth-rates of BRCA1-associated cancers can still lead to interval cancers, and/or node-positive disease. Using MRI with shorter screening intervals helps to effectively avoid both, interval cancers and node-positive stages, whereas there is no role for mammography in these women.

ConclusionsOur report showed a relatively higher incidence rate of occult cancer at 11.3% in PM specimens despite thorough pre-operative radiological evaluations, which included a breast MRI. Considering the occult cancer rates and the various pathological methods of our study and published studies, we propose the necessity of a histopathological protocol.
