Women Have Preferences Regarding Breast Imaging Centers Based On Location And Radiologists’ Training, Study Suggests.

Monday, July 10, 2017

Aunt Minnie (7/7, Yee) reports women have preferences regarding breast imaging centers, according to a study published in the American Journal of Roentgenology. Researchers found that a facility’s location “and whether its radiologists have breast imaging training” are key factors in their preferences. 

Deep-Learning AI Algorithm That Uses False-Color Enhancement Technique May Be As Accurate As Expert Radiologist For Detecting Breast Cancer, Study Suggests.

Monday, July 10, 2017

Aunt Minnie (7/6, Ridley) reports a deep-learning AI algorithm that uses “a false-color enhancement technique that converts black-and-white shadows on mammograms into color...can achieve accuracy similar to an expert radiologist’s for detecting breast cancer,” according to a study published in the Journal of Digital Imaging. Researchers found that “the algorithm yielded 91% sensitivity and 80% specificity,” which is “as good a performance as any published results for radiologists working with or without computer-aided detection (CAD) software.” 

Adding Elastography And Color Doppler To B-Mode Ultrasounds May Decrease False Positives When Screening Dense Breasts, Study Suggests.

Monday, July 10, 2017

Aunt Minnie (7/7, Ridley) reports “adding elastography and color Doppler to B-mode ultrasound can significantly decrease the number of false positives when screening women with dense breasts, avoiding as many as two-thirds of unnecessary biopsies,” according to a study published in Radiology. “Researchers found that combining elastography and color Doppler ultrasound with B-mode ultrasound more than doubled the modality’s positive predictive value (PPV) in women with dense breasts.”
