New Study Suggests Women With Dense Breast Tissue May Benefit From Regular MRIs
While there has been some controversy over when women should start getting mammograms, all experts agree that screening is an important first step in detecting breast cancers and treating them early. But for some women, that’s not enough. For the approximately 40% of women with dense breast tissue, and especially the 10% with extremely dense tissue, cancer cells are harder to detect, since the denser tissue can mask small growths. In addition, dense breast tissue itself is also a risk factor for developing cancer. There’s been debate among experts over whether these women should have additional screening, on to...

UCLA researchers have developed an artificial intelligence system that could help pathologists read biopsies more accurately and to better detect and diagnose breast cancer.The new system,described in a study published today in JAMA Network Open, helps interpret medical images used to diagnose breast cancer that can be difficult for the human eye to classify, and it does so nearly as accurately or better as experienced pathologists.“It is critical to get a correct diagnosis from the beginning so that we can guide patients to the most effective treatments,” said Dr. Joann Elmore, the study’s senior author ...

Smart Biopsy Device Could Diagnose Breast Cancer Using Miniature Radiofrequency Sensors
Normally, when a physician notices a suspicious mass or lesion on a mammogram, he or she will request an ultrasound to explore it further. Based on those results, a biopsy may be performed to determine whether the mass is cancerous. “Unfortunately, right now, in some cases, physicians either overdiagnose or underdiagnose based on that biopsy, because with ultrasound they can only see so much,” said Lori Chmura, CEO of Dune Medical Devices. “The doctor is essentially going in blindly, trying to see what looks like the most suspicious area, and they’re t...
