Women's Imaging

 

For the last 10 years, researchers from the University of Texas MD Andersen 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.  

According to a new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), researchers found that increased depth in prenatal ultrasound exams has no associatation with late diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD).  

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. 

Researchers from the Columbia University Medical Center have found additional breast imaging with ultrasound technology may be unnecessary after a patient receives a negative mammogram and has experienced symptoms of breast pain alone, according to a recent study published in Current Problems in Diagnostic Radiology

Researchers from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill found the health risks of newborns born to women with breast cancer varied depending on the mother’s type of cancer.

3D doppler ultrasound can better determine fetal growth restriction than 2D version

A new study published in the January issue of the Journal of Ultrasound in Medicine has shown that a 3D Doppler ultrasound can more accurately determine altered fetal growth restriction (FGR) in fetuses vulnerable to developing abnormal cerebral vascular flow patterns than a standard 2D Doppler ultrasound.
