Abstract PROBLEM IDENTIFICATION: Many breast cancer survivors fail to engage in surveillance mammography to detect new and recurrent cancers. This review identifies factors promoting or inhibiting breast cancer survivors' participation in recommended surveillance mammography. LITERATURE SEARCH: This integrative review included all English-language studies published from 2000 to 2017, identified in CINAHL®, PsycINFO®, Embase®, and MEDLINE® via PubMed®. DATA EVALUATION: 23 studies met the inclusion criteria and were analyzed and synthesized. SYNTHESIS: 19 factors influencing mammog...

AbstractPurposeThe future of non-operative management of DCIS relies on distinguishing lesions requiring treatment from those needing only active surveillance. More accurate preoperative staging and grading of DCIS would be helpful. We identified determinants of upstaging preoperative breast biopsies showing ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) to invasive breast cancer (IBC), or of upgrading them to higher-grade DCIS, following examination of the surgically excised specimen.MethodsWe studied all women with DCIS at preoperative biopsy in a large specialist cancer centre during 2000 –2014. Information from clinical records...

An artificial intelligence (AI) tool - trained on roughly a million screening mammography images - identified breast cancer with approximately 90 percent accuracy when combined with analysis by radiologists, a new study finds. Led by researchers from NYU School of Medicine and the NYU Center for Data Science, the study examined the ability of a type of AI, a machine learning computer program, to add value to

ConclusionsThis work has demonstrated a significant correlation between the degree of lesion enhancement in CESM and malignancy. Quantitative analysis of enhancement levels in CESM can distinguish between invasive cancers and benign or in situ lesions.Key Points• There is a possibility of quantitative assessment of contrast enhancement in CESM.• Correlation between quantitative assessment of contrast enhancement in CESM and histopathology was observed.

Abstract In this article, we explore the evidence around the relative benefits and harms of breast cancer screening using a single radiologist to examine each female's mammograms for signs of cancer (single reading), or two radiologists (double reading). First, we briefly explore the historical evidence using film-screen mammography, before providing an in-depth description of evidence using digital mammography. We classify studies according to which exact version of double reading they use, because the evidence suggests that effectiveness of double reading is contingent on whether the two radiologists are blinded...

AbstractBreast cancer (BC) is the most common cancer among females with more than 2 million new cases diagnosed worldwide in 2018. Although the prognosis in the majority of cases in the early stages combined with appropriate treatment is positive, there are still about 30% of patients who will develop locoregional diseases and distant metastases. Molecular imaging is very important in the diagnosis, staging, follow-up, and radiotherapy planning. Additionally, it is useful in characterizing lesions, prognosis, and therapy response in BC patients. Nuclear medicine imaging modalities (SPECT and PET) are of indispensable impor...
