Automated and clinical Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS) density can similarly detect and predict breast cancer, according to a study published May 1 in Annals of Internal Medicine. The two methods also perform similarly in measuring breast density.

In 2009, the U.S. Preventative Services Task Force (USPSTF) revised its breast cancer screening guidelines. These changes may be one reason for a continuous decline in breast screening exams in the U.S. since 2010, according to results of a study published by the American Journal of Roentgenology.

Researchers from Duke University Medical Center have found that women with greater than minimal background parenchymal enhancement (BPE) at an index MRI face increased risk of developing breast cancer, according to a study published online March 27 in Academic Radiology.

A Pennsylvania woman was shocked when quoted $351 for a breast MRI from the Crozer-Keystone Health System, before being billed $4,650 for the exam.

Researchers from the Breast Cancer Now Toby Robins Research Centre at the Institute of Cancer Research in London may have found specific genes that are involved in increasing a woman's risk of developing breast cancer, according to a study published online March 12 in Nature Communications.

According to a recent study in JAMA Surgery, researchers from Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) in Boston found current guidelines for breast cancer screening may lead to delayed diagnosis in nonwhite women due to lack of data from racially diverse populations.

Researchers at the University of Arkansas may be finalizing the development of an alternative method to detect and treat breast cancer, according to a University of Arkansas news release.

A study recently published in Academic Radiology has found that follow-up imaging after a canceled MRI-guided breast biopsy due to nonvisualization may accurately indicate completely resolved breast lesions. But because some lesions do persist after the initial biopsy, researchers recommend six-month follow-up MRI exams for patients.

Diffusion kurtosis imaging could reduce unnecessary breast biopsies and expand treatment options, according to a recent release from the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA).

For the last 10 years, researchers from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center have been compiling examples of when breast MRI may be helpful for male patients, according to a study published online Jan. 10 in Diagnostic Radiology.

False-positive stereotactic vacuum-assisted breast biopsies (SVABs) may not negatively affect subsequent mammographic screenings, according to a recent study published in the Journal of the American College of Radiology (JACR). The harms of false-positives, according to reserachers from the Center for Biomedical Imaging at New York University School of Medicine, may be exaggerated.
