Among patients who show any indication for radiotherapy, black women with breast cancer were more likely to receive radiation compared to white patients, according to a recent study published in Advances in Radiation Oncology.

The U.S. Preventative Services Task Force (USPSTF) released updated recommendations for BRCA1/2 testing, suggesting practitioners increase the use of genetic counseling and testing.

Synthesized digital mammography (SM) was created to help reduce the radiation dose for patients undergoing digital mammography (DM) in digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT), so why haven’t more clinics adopted it?

A new machine learning system created by UCLA researchers may help doctors classify breast cancers that are notoriously difficult to diagnose, according to an Aug. 9 study published in JAMA Network Open.

Researchers compared prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) PET/CT to traditional 18F-fluciclovine PET/CT for the detection of biochemically recurrent prostate cancer.

Utilizing an AI system for digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) can improve radiologists’ accuracy while dramatically reducing reading times, according to a new study published in Radiology: Artificial Intelligence.  

A deep learning classification approach can identify cancerous regions from benign areas in optical coherence tomography (OCT) images of breast tissue, according to results of a July 17 study published in Academic Radiology.

After looking at more than 12,500 preventative office visits included in the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey, researchers reported that the rate of screening breast ultrasound ordering by physicians has remained low.

CMS revealed details for their newly proposed alternative payment model for radiation oncology on July 10. The American Society of Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) believes the model, with adjustments, "will incentivize higher quality, more convenient radiation treatments for patients and support their journey toward a cure."

Breast cancer screening using digital breast tomosynthesis has risen rapidly in the United States, but that isn’t the case in all regions or across all institutions, according to a new study published in Current Problems in Diagnostic Radiology.

Although most studies demonstrating the benefits of digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) have been observational, use of the modality has risen dramatically over the past few years, according to a study of more than nine million women published in JAMA Internal Medicine.

Adding a scan during a patient’s prostate cancer therapy can help personalize treatment, according to research presented at the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI)’s 2019 Annual Meeting in Anaheim, Calif.
