ia Chiu Hsiu-Hsi Chen The aim was to evaluate how the inter-screening interval affected the performance of screening by mammographic appearances. This was a Swedish retrospective screening cohort study with information on screening history and mammography features in two periods (1977–1985 and 1996–2010). The pre-clinical incidence and the mean sojourn time (MST) for small breast cancer allowing for sensitivity by mammographic appearances were estimated. The percentage of interval cancer against background incidence (I/E ratio) was used to assess the performance of mammography screening by differe...

AbstractThis paper examines the effectiveness of using personal health records (PHRs), which contains detailed health information to improve the use of recommended screening mammography among women at potential risk for breast cancer. It also explores the potential of PHR in reducing disparities in recommended mammography use experienced by minority and underserved women. The primary data used for this study were obtained from the 2015 Health Information National Trends Survey, and they were supplemented by the 2016 Area Health Resource Files. The study sample included women aged 40 –75 years with no prior diagn...

In this study, we assessed multiplicative interactions between MD measures and established risk factors on the risk of invasive breast cancer overall and by menopausal and estrogen receptor (ER) status. We used data on 2,137 cases and 4,346 controls from a nested case-control study within the Nurses' Health Studies I (1976-2004) and II (1989-2007), for whose data on percent mammographic density (PMD), absolute area of dense tissue (DA) and non-dense tissue (NDA) were available. No interaction remained statistically significant after adjusting for number of comparisons. For breast cancer overall, we observed nominally signi...

CONCLUSION: Breast ultrasound shows a high sensitivity to detect breast cancer during pregnancy. BCP is diagnosed at a higher stage than in nonpregnant women. In our series, patients with BCP had poorer outcomes than the not pregnant group. These results were not observed when adjusting for stage. PMID: 32623975 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Early initiation (at ages 25 to 30 years) of annual breast cancer screening with MRI, with or without mammography, might reduce breast cancer mortality by half or more in survivors of childhood cancer.

(American College of Physicians) Early initiation (at ages 25 to 30) of annual breast cancer screening with breast MRI, with or without mammography, might reduce breast cancer mortality by half or more in female survivors of childhood cancer previously exposed to chest radiation. These findings highlight the importance of MRI in reducing deaths from breast cancer in this population. A comparative modeling study is published in Annals of Internal Medicine.

Abstract Overseas, the importance for breast MRI screening for high-risk groups has been shown. However, the evidence among Japanese population was lacking. Therefore, we collaborated with the "Study on clinical and genetic characterization of hereditary breast and ovarian cancer and improvement in prognosis using genetic information in Japan" group, as part of the Comprehensive Research Project on the Promotion of Cancer Control, Health and Labour Sciences Research, and have been conducting the study entitled, "Study of the usefulness of MRI surveillance of BRCA1/2 mutation carriers" since 201...

by Thuy T. T. Le, Frederick R. Adler The benefits of mammography screening have been controversial, with conflicting findings from various studies. We hypothesize that unmeasured heterogeneity in tumor aggressiveness underlies these conflicting results. Based on published data from the Canadian National Breast Screening Study (CNBSS) , we develop and parameterize an individual-based mechanistic model for breast cancer incidence and mortality that tracks five stages of breast cancer progression and incorporates the effects of age on breast cancer incidence and all-cause mortality. The model accurately reproduces the report...

Abstract BACKGROUND: The low subject contrast between cancerous and fibroglandular tissue could obscure breast abnormalities. PURPOSE: To investigate radiologists' performance for detection of breast cancer in low and high mammographic density (MD) when cases are digitally acquired. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A test set of 60 digital mammography cases, of which 20 were cancerous, were examined by 17 radiologists. Mammograms were categorized as low (≤50%) or high (>50%) MD and rated for suspicion of malignancy using the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiology (RANZCR) classification system....
