Publication date: November 2018Source: Academic Radiology, Volume 25, Issue 11Author(s): Rossella Rella, Paolo Belli, Michela Giuliani, Enida Bufi, Giorgio Carlino, Pierluigi Rinaldi, Riccardo ManfrediAutomated breast ultrasonography (ABUS) is a new imaging technology for automatic breast scanning through ultrasound. It was first developed to overcome the limitation of operator dependency and lack of standardization and reproducibility of handheld ultrasound. ABUS provides a three-dimensional representation of breast tissue and allows images reformatting in three planes, and the generated coronal plane has been suggested t...

The objective of this study was to compare the performance of screening mammography versus magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in hormone replacement therapy (HRT) users.MethodsWe performed a retrospective review of 4628 women who had mammography or breast MRI screening from the beginning of HRT use at three institutions from April 2005 to December 2015. Information of demographics, number of biopsies performed and pathologic outcomes were collected. Sensitivity, specificity, negative predictive value (NPV) and positive predictive value (PPV) of screening mammography and MRI were compared.ResultsTotally 11,540 screening studi...

According to results of Swedish Trial by Sophia Zackrisson et al published inLancet Oncology  recently, Breast cancer screening by use of one-view digital breast tomosynthesis with a reduced compression force has higher sensitivity at a slightly lower specificity for breast cancer detection compared with two-view digital mammography andhas the potential to reduce the radiation dose and screen-reading burden required by two-view digital breast tomosynthesis with two-view digital mammography.Reference : One-view breast tomosynthesis versus two-view mammography in the Malm ö Breast Tomosynthesis Screening Trial...

We examined supplemental screening (ie, MRI, ultrasound, or tomosynthesis within 6 months of screening mammogram) among a sample of 2,764 African American (AA) and 691 European American (EA) women with negative or benign screening mammograms for whom we had data from both before and after implementation of breast density notification laws in the state of Michigan. Results indicated a 5-fold increase (from 0.14% to 0.7% of women) in supplemental screening among screen-negative women after passage of the law, driven in large part by an increase in supplemental screening among AA women. Breast density was more predictive of s...

Nearly half of women have dense breasts, a risk factor for breast cancer. For proper screening, spotting dense breast tissue is important, as it can hide the presence of tumors. Currently, dense tissue is identified by radiologists viewing mammograph...

ConclusionCombined FFDM + DBT in the post breast cancer surveillance regimen has shown to reduce the patients' RR and to increase the CDR. FFDM + DBT had higher diagnostic accuracy than FFDM alone. FFDM + DBT ought to be a standard combination in the breast cancer surveillance in treated patients.

AbstractPurposePleomorphic invasive lobular carcinoma (pILC) is a distinct morphological variant of ILC with a poorer prognosis than classical ILC (cILC). The aim of this study was to ascertain whether the conventional imaging appearances of the two entities differ.MethodsA single-center retrospective review of conventional imaging was undertaken in 150 consecutive patients with histopathologically confirmed ILC (38 pILC; 112 cILC) between April 2010 and July 2015. Mammographic and sonographic findings were evaluated using the BI-RADS lexicon by a radiologist blinded to pathology, and the findings in the two groups were co...

ConclusionsUsing USPSTF revealed preferences, 31 –74% reductions in false-positives would be required to recommend mammography screening beyond biennial screening starting at age 50. Widespread implementation of tomosynthesis and reducing recall rates to the lower end of recommended recall rates (5–12%) would provide support for expanding scre ening beyond biennial screening in women age 50.
