Dr. Laura Mulvey, 33, practices emergency medicine at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York. After spending six days receiving treatment in her own hospital, she is now recovering at home from what is presumed to be COVID-19, though her test was inconclusive. What follows is a lightly-edited transcript of her story as told to TIME. Early on, sometime in February, [COVID-19] was something that people were thinking about. And worried about. Certainly, the worries were not what they are now. But hospital-wise, we had a bit of an earlier jump on it, because we recognized that this was a potential threat. We’re ...

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...

Abstract Deep convolutional neural network (DCNN), now popularly called artificial intelligence (AI), has shown the potential to improve over previous computer-assisted tools in medical imaging developed in the past decades. A DCNN has millions of free parameters that need to be trained, but the training sample set is limited in size for most medical imaging tasks so that transfer learning is typically used. Automatic data mining may be an efficient way to enlarge the collected data set but the data can be noisy such as incorrect labels or even a wrong type of images. In this work we studied the generalization err...
