Could contrast mammo supplant CE-MRI for confirming breast cancer?

Friday, February 21, 2020

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.

3D micro-CT primed to revamp breast cancer imaging

Tuesday, February 11, 2020

Aunt Minnie (2/11) reports on a study from Breast Cancer Research and Treatment which states that using 3D micro-CT to image breast cancer biopsy samples leads to a more precise assessment of cancer margins than the traditional histological approach and could improve the effectiveness of surgical treatment.

Digital mammo for microcalcifications: A mixed bag?
