Partial-Breast, Reduced-Dose Radiotherapy May Be Noninferior To Whole-Breast Equivalent For Prevention Of Local Relapse In Women With Early Breast Cancer, Study Suggests.

Wednesday, August 16, 2017

Medwire News (8/15, Cowen) reports “partial-breast and reduced-dose radiotherapy are noninferior to the whole-breast equivalent for the prevention of local relapse in women with early breast cancer,” according to a study published in The Lancet. Researchers alsofound that “women receiving partial-breast radiotherapy reported fewer adverse events, including changes in breast appearance and breast hardness, than those receiving whole-breast radiotherapy.”

FFDM And DBT Had Comparable Breast Density Measurements And Median Radiation Dose Values For Dense Breasts, Researchers Find.

Thursday, August 10, 2017

Aunt Minnie (8/3, Yee) reports full-field digital mammography (FFDM) and digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) produced comparable breast density measurements and median radiation dose values for dense breasts, according to a study published in Academic Radiology. The study’s lead researcher said that the results were evidence that radiologists could trust DBT for patients with dense breasts.

Simple interventions reduce mammography recall rates

Tuesday, August 8, 2017
A few simple interventions can significantly reduce recall rates for both full-field digital mammography (FFDM) and digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT), according to a study published online July 28 in Academic Radiology. And the interventions don't add much more time to a busy practice's workload, researchers found

Are older women getting appropriate mammo screening?

Monday, August 7, 2017
Older breast cancer survivors with a life expectancy of five years or less are continuing to receive annual surveillance mammography, according to a study published online July 27 in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.

Radiologists can trust DBT density measurements

Thursday, August 3, 2017
Breast density measurements calculated on full-field digital mammography (FFDM) and digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) are comparable -- and so are median radiation dose values for dense breasts, according to a study published in the July issue of Academic Radiology.
