Publication date: Available online 16 March 2019Source: Preventive MedicineAuthor(s): Xuanzi Qin, Rebekah H. Nagler, Erika Franklin Fowler, Sarah E. GollustAbstractThe American Cancer Society and the U.S. Preventive Task Force recently recommended that women initiate routine breast cancer screening at older ages (45 and 50, respectively) than previously recommended, and both organizations emphasize the importance of weighing the harms of mammograms against the benefits in making informed decisions. However, little is known from national samples about how women perceive the harms and benefits of mammograms, and how these pe...

Publication date: May 2019Source: Biomedical Signal Processing and Control, Volume 51Author(s): Hua Li, Shasha Zhuang, Deng-ao Li, Jumin Zhao, Yanyun MaAbstractBreast cancer is one of the most common malignant tumors in women, which seriously affect women's physical and mental health and even threat to life. At present, mammography is an important criterion for doctors to diagnose breast cancer. However, due to the complex structure of mammogram images, it is relatively difficult for doctors to identify breast cancer features. At present, deep learning is the most mainstream image classification algorithm. Therefore, this ...

We examined use of preventive care and cancer screening services in cancer survivors and comparison adults with/without SPD. Multivariable logistic regression models were conducted for each outcome: preventive service (i.e. blood pressure, cholesterol, influenza vaccination, routine and dental check-up) or cancer screening (i.e. mammography, Papanicolau test, colorectal cancer screening) adjusting for demographic, comorbidity, usual source of care covariates. Adjusted odds ratios and 95% confidence intervals were calculated. Prevalence of SPD was 9.8% in cancer survivors compared to 4.6% in comparison adults. Survivors wit...

Authors: Franceschini G, Di Leone A, Terribile D, Sanchez MA, Masetti R Abstract Aim of this paper is to allows to analyze a topic of great relevance and media interest such as the role of prophylactic mastectomy in healthy women with BRCA mutation proposing to the surgeons some useful informations for decision-making. Less than 15% of all breast cancers are associated with germline genetic mutations. The majority of hereditary breast tumors are due to mutations in BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes that are responsible for only one third of hereditary cases. The risk estimates are extremely heterogeneous with a mean cumulative...

Conclusion 18F-FDG PET/CT does not appear to be useful in cancer screening for AIM patients compared with conventional screening and carries potential harms associated with follow-up investigations. The risk of cancer in AIM differs by myositis-specific antibodies-defined subsets and cancer screening is likely to be indicated only in high-risk patients, particularly DM. These results, replicated in larger, multicentered studies, may carry significant consequences for optimal management of AIM and health resource utilization.

The American College of Radiology and several other radiology organizations have released a consensus  documentanalyzing the ethical implications of artificial intelligence (AI) in medical imaging. The 38-page report examines the practice of AI in radiology, and how the technology could possibly influence and change the specialty. “Most changes will be positive,” the authors write, “but some may be for the worst.”The document promotes a discussion on how to effectively use AI while implementing standards, policies, and rules of conduct for ensuring that the technology is administered ethically ...

Abstract With declining mortality rates, the number of breast cancer survivors is increasing. Ongoing care after breast cancer treatment is often provided by primary care physicians. This care includes surveillance for cancer recurrence with a history and physical examination every three to six months for the first three years after treatment, every six to 12 months for two more years, and annually thereafter. Mammography is performed annually. Magnetic resonance imaging of the breast is not indicated unless patients are at high risk of recurrence, such as having a hereditary cancer syndrome. Many breast cancer su...
