Capacity for optical colonoscopy across NHS England hospitals is "already stretched," so freeing up space is a top priority to screen patients who need the procedure most.

The new study included more than 120 men with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer, and was presented during the American Society of Clinical Oncology 2020 virtual meeting.

German scientists found six of seven patients with difficult-to-treat cancer had genetic mutations in their DNA damage-repair genes, according to new research.

The research, which included more than 43,000 women, found that slightly under 2% of individuals tagged with a “probably benign” finding were later diagnosed with cancer.

A new study of more than half a million Swedish women found that early screening reduces the risk of dying from the disease by 41% within a decade of diagnosis.

Digital breast tomosynthesis did lower recall rates and improve cancer detection overall, but there was "wide variability" among individual imaging experts.

A number of patients recommended for CRC screening say they haven't undergone the exam, but have received a computed tomography scan. Researchers believe radiologists should jump on this fact.

"We showed it is possible using this approach to get incredibly encouraging results if you have access to a large archive," said experts from the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada.

U.K researchers also recommend incorporating breathing tests into low-dose CT lung cancer screening programs to better diagnose the disease.

The modality detected more deadly cancers and achieved a better recall rate than traditional mammography, according to Penn researchers.

Engineers from Dartmouth University also said their approach would cut out the need for gadolinium-based contrast agents.

“This study shows a disheartening rate of inadequate exams among mpMRI studies of the prostate,” experts wrote in Academic Radiology.
