AbstractPurpose of ReviewTo bring the reader up to date on recent literature on cancer detection with digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT).Recent FindingsMany early landmark trials have recently published follow-up studies comparing DBT and synthesized DBT (SM  + DBT) to digital mammography (DM). Recent work has also focused on interval cancers and biological characteristics of DBT cancers in efforts to assess the impact of cancer detection with DBT.SummaryConsistent increases in cancer detection and overall reductions in recall rates are observed with DBT and maintained with SM  + DBT. Studies on...

AbstractPurposeTo compare automated breast volumetric scanning (ABVS) with hand-held bilateral whole breast ultrasound (HHUS) prospectively in regards to patient workflow, woman preference, efficacy in lesion detection, and characterization.Materials and methodsSupplemental screening was performed with both ABVS and HHUS to 345 women with dense breasts and negative mammograms. Acquisition and evaluation times were recorded. Lesions were classified according to BIRADS US criteria and compared one to one. Women were recalled for a secondary HHUS examination if ABVS showed any additional lesions. Findings were compared based ...
