There is no shortage of research investigating the effectiveness of the Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS) category 3 in mammography, but what’s less understood is why some women complete follow-up recommendations while many do not.
Breast cancer phenotype can influence MRI’s ability to evaluate the effectiveness of chemotherapy, according to a study published Oct. 4 in the European Journal of Radiology. But which specific tumor subtypes have the greatest impact on the modality’s performance?
A new magnetic “seed” technology can help radiologists localize breast lesions and offers benefits over traditional wire-guided localization (WGL), reported authors of a study published Oct. 3 in the European Journal of Radiology.
The National Cancer Institute—part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH)—has awarded researchers at the University of Arizona Health Sciences $3.6 million to investigate a new imaging-based method to detect breast cancer.
“Knowing that the cancer yield of screening US is similar after DBT versus DM may help inform clinical practice, because questions abound about whether DBT is sufficient screening for women with dense breast tissue," wrote authors of a new study published in the American Journal of Roentgenology.
Screening mammography was shown to identify more cancers than the average detection rate in men at a high risk for breast cancer, according to a new study published in Radiology. The tool may save lives by detecting cancers earlier than other screening methods.
