CONCLUSIONSThe main conclusion is that novice students do not seem to be able to accurately detect breast masses in a clinical setting even after training. On the basis of these results, we believe that a comprehension component in the current CBE testing is needed in addition to the current methods of testing. PMID: 31104050 [PubMed - in process]

Publication date: Available online 20 May 2019Source: European Journal of RadiologyAuthor(s): Yi-Shuan Hwang, Hui-Yu Tsai, Yu-Ying Lin, Ying-Lan LiaoAbstractObjectiveThe purpose of this study was to investigate the impact of the new American College of Radiology (ACR) digital mammography (DM) phantom in evaluating phantom image quality (IQ) and average glandular dose (AGD) in a nationwide survey on DM systems.MethodsOn-site surveys of 239 DM units were conducted in 2017 and 2018, and comparisons were made between ACR screen-film mammography (SFM) phantom and DM phantom for accessing phantom IQ and AGD. The phantom IQ was a...

This study aims at developing algorithms which improve accuracy of computer-aided diagnosis (CADx) for analyzing breast abnormalities on ipsilateral views. The proposed system is a fusion of single and two view systems. Single view approach detects and characterizes suspicious lesions on craniocaudal (CC) and medio-lateral oblique (MLO) view separately using geometric and textural features. Lesions detected on each view are paired with potential lesions on another view. The proposed algorithm computes the correspondence score of each lesion pair. Single view information is fused with two views correspondence score to discr...

Winter Individual well-being is a complex concept that varies among and between individuals and is impacted by individual, interpersonal, community, organizational, policy and environmental factors. This research explored associations between select environmental characteristics measured at the ZIP code level and individual well-being. Participants (n = 3288, mean age = 41.4 years, 71.0% female, 57.9% white) were drawn from a registry of individuals who completed the Stanford WELL for Life Scale (SWLS), a 76-question online survey that asks about 10 domains of well-being: social connectedness, lifestyle and daily prac...

Abstract Body size in adolescence has been inversely associated with benign breast disease(BBD) and breast cancer risk, but little is known about the impact of growth in infancy and childhood. Using prospective data from the Early Determinants of Mammographic Density(EDMD) study (1959-2008, n=1121), we examined the associations between maternal body size, birth size and infant and early childhood growth during three time periods(0-4 months, 4-12 months, and 1-4 years) and BBD using multivariable logistic regression with generalized estimating equations. 197 women(17.6%) reported receiving a diagnosis of BBD by a p...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Mammography is the optimal tool to mitigate breast cancer morbidity and mortality; however, in many healthcare settings, mammography adherence rates are decreasing. OBJECTIVES: This nurse-led quality improvement project was conducted to improve patient adherence to annual mammography screening. METHODS: Data collection included clinical information from the electronic health record, chart reviews, tracking documentation used by the clinic's social worker, interviews with staff, observation of the clinical setting, creation of a process flow map to identify barriers, and identificatio...

Conclusion: Combining imaging biomarkers such as the mammographic appearance of the tumor with the histopathologic distribution and basal phenotype, accurately predicted long-term risk of breast cancer death. The information may be relevant for determining the need for molecular testing, planning treatment, and determining the most appropriate clinical surveillance schedule for breast cancer patients.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewBreast cancer is the most common cancer among females in developed countries. Strategies such as early detection by breast cancer screening can reduce the burden of disease but have disadvantages including overdiagnosis and increased cost. Stratification of women according to the risk of developing breast cancer, based on genetic and lifestyle risk factors, could improve risk-reduction and screening strategies by targeting those most likely to benefit.Recent FindingsBreast cancer risk is partly determined by genetic factors including rare pathogenic variants in susceptibility genes and common low-r...
