history of breast cancer underwent more mammograms and had a higher rate of
screen-detected cancers than their lower-risk peers.
Aunt Minnie (12/24) reports on a recent study from Radiology which finds that while digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) led to fewer recalls, the modality didn't boost the cancer detection rate for breast cancer survivors.
Health Imaging (12/23) reports on the 2021
Consolidated Appropriations Act, which extends the moratorium on controversial United States Preventative Services Task
Force breast cancer screening guidelines by one year, pushing the date back to

Diagnostic Imaging (11/10) reports that breast cancer
detection is better when radiologists opt for digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT)
with synthetic mammography (SM) rather than digital mammography (DM) alone,
according to research published in Radiology.
