How the COVID-19 Pandemic Has Changed Cancer Care, In 4 Charts

When COVID-19 hit Massachusetts this spring, the number of new consultations fell by half and the hospital moved as many appointments as possible online. Now, with daily case counts relatively low in the area, the hospital is back to scheduling about 800 consultations per week, using a mixture of telemedicine and in-person appointments, says associate chief medical officer Dr. Andrew Wagner—but that still means about 200 cancer patients per week are not getting the treatment consult...

Study pinpoints women who benefit less from 3D mammograms
(University of Washington Health Sciences/UW Medicine) A new comparison of two breast-screening technologies has found that, for most women, digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT, also called 3D mammography) is superior to digital mammography for cancer detection and for reducing recall visits due to unclear or false findings. The study's distinction, though, is in identifying women for whom DBT's advantage is less. Previous evidence had suggested that DBT would generally benefit all women. (Source: EurekAlert! - Cancer)
