This Is The End Of The Beginning Rather Than The Beginning Of The End.

This appeared a few days ago.Google AI system beats doctors in detection tests for breast cancerHannah KuchlerJan 2, 2020 — 3.19pmNew York | Google Health has developed a system that can identify breast cancer more accurately than radiologists, in the latest sign that artificial intelligence could improve early detection of disease in images.In a paper published in the scientific journal Nature, experts from Google H ealth, Alphabet’s DeepMind unit, and UK and US universities showed the AI model reduced both false positives, in which patients are wrongly told they have cancer, as well as false negatives, where the disease is present but not diagnosed.Screening mammograms is known to be imperfect, failing to de tect about one in five breast cancers, according to the American Cancer Society. More than half of all women are given a false positive every 10 years, causing anxiety and leading to unnecessary treatment, which was estimated in a 2015 study in the journal Health Affairs to cost...

Publication date: Available online 23 December 2019Source: Journal of Cancer PolicyAuthor(s): Athena Michaelides, Constantina ConstantinouAbstractBreast cancer is the second most common cancer diagnosed worldwide and the leading cause of cancer death in women. In the past years, efforts have been made to develop psychoeducation programmes targeting the prevention of breast cancer via educating the general public. These programmes placed emphasis on risk reducing behaviours and on promoting Breast Self-Examination and screening via mammography, to aid in the early identification of pathological findings. In parallel, effort...

DiscussionBased on previously published retrospective studies, we expect to demonstrate in this prospective multicenter randomized controlled trial, that using CESM as a primary work-up tool in women recalled from breast cancer screening is a more accurate, cost-effective, and patient-friendly strategy.Trial registration Netherlands Trial Register,NL6413/NTR6589.

Conclusions: Fat-grafting sequelae may lead to early unplanned invasive and noninvasive procedures initiated by a variety of providers. In this study, fat grafting had no impact on local recurrence rate. As use of fat grafting grows, communication among breast cancer care providers and enhanced patient and caregiver education will be increasingly important in optimizing the multidisciplinary evaluation and monitoring of palpable breast lesions. CLINICAL QUESTION/LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Therapeutic, IV.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe purpose of this review is to examine the most recent data and guidelines regarding screening for breast cancer in average risk women.Recent FindingsThe differing recommendations for screening reflect differences in value judgements between the benefits (decreased cancer-related death and morbidity) and the harms (potential for overdiagnosis, false positives, false negatives, anxiety, and cost of care) of breast cancer screening.SummaryThere are multiple organizations with recommendations for breast cancer screening in women at average risk. All organizations recommend mammography to screen for ...

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) wants to require mammogram providers to tell women if they have a common risk factor for breast cancer. The proposal, released Wednesday, would be the FDA’s first update to mammography regulations in more than 20 years, according to a statement from the agency. Among other proposed changes, the policy would require mammography providers to inform patients who undergo the breast cancer screening test if they have dense breast tissue, which may both warp the results of a mammogram by obscuring signs of cancer, and increase the risk of developing breast cancer in the first place. ...
