Handheld Ultrasound With CADx Helps Triage Breast Masses, Research Indicates.

Aunt Minnie (8/31, Yee) reports that according to an article published online August 29 in the Journal of Global Oncology, “researchers successfully used a combination of handheld ultrasound and computer-aided diagnosis (CADx) software to triage women in Mexico who had palpable breast masses,” which could improve access to screening mammography. The team wrote that the results “open up the possibility of implementing practical, cost-effective triage of palpable breast lumps, ensuring that scarce resources can be dedicated to suspicious lesions requiring further workup.”
