Aunt Minnie (2/26) reports that most breast care practices use supplemental screening in women with dense tissue, but the modalities used and the methods in which patients are referred vary widely, according to a study published online in the Journal of the American College of Radiology.
Aunt Minnie (2/25) reports on a study from JAMA which states that breast MRI with an abbreviated scanning protocol—as short as 10 minutes—finds more invasive cancers in women with dense tissue than digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT)
Aunt Minnie (2/24) reports that Canadian researchers have developed a prototype of a breast cancer screening technology based on microwaves that does not expose women to ionizing radiation.
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.
