Aunt Minnie (2/19) reports on a study from the Journal of the American College of Radiology which states that digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) found more than twice as many cancers as full-field digital mammography alone (FFDM) or a combination of the two technologies.
Aunt Minnie (2/27) reports that contrast-enhanced (CE) mammography might be better suited than contrast-enhanced MRI for confirming some cases of suspicious breast cancer—especially when radiation dose-reducing protocols are used, according to a study published in the Journal of Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
Aunt Minnie (2/11) reports on a study from Breast Cancer Research and Treatment which states that using 3D micro-CT to image breast cancer biopsy samples leads to a more precise assessment of cancer margins than the traditional histological approach and could improve the effectiveness of surgical treatment.
Aunt Minnie (2/4) reports that the full-field digital mammography (FFDM) had better detection of high-grade ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), but also a higher recall rate, according to research published in Radiology.
Aunt Minnie (2/4) reports that a breast ultrasound artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm was able to differentiate breast masses at a high level of accuracy by combining analysis of B-mode and color Doppler images, according to research published online in European Radiology.
