Aunt Minnie (5/9) reports on researchers from California produced photorealistic 3D models of the breast by applying cinematic rendering to 3D transmission ultrasound images. The potential clinical applications of these models were the subject of a Wednesday presentation at the American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS) annual meeting.
Health Imaging (5/9) reports that fifth edition of the American College of Radiology (ACR) Breast Imaging and Reporting Data System (BI-RADS) showed better positive predictive values (PPVs) for categorizing suspicious calcifications compared to BI-RADS 4, according to a new study published in the American Journal of Roentgenology.
Aunt Minnie (5/7) reports on a deep-learning algorithm can beat current breast cancer risk-assessment methods that only assess traditional risk factors such as breast density and family history by analyzing subtle imaging patterns on screening mammograms, according to research published in Radiology.
Aunt Minnie (5/7) reports that follow-up breast MRI can be part of an effective workup protocol for women who have undergone a breast MRI screening exam that identified lesions categorized as BI-RADS 3, or "probably benign," according to research presented at the American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS) annual meeting in Honolulu.
Aunt Minnie (Yee, 5/6) reports that referring physicians need a better understanding of what kinds of breast pain should prompt imaging workup and what imaging to order, according to research presented at the American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS) annual meeting in Honolulu.
