German and Russian researchers have developed a new injection diagnosis system based on magnetoferritin that may improve MRI accuracy, cancer diagnosis and treatment options.

The U.S. Preventative Services Task Force (USPSTF) issued updated cervical cancer screening guidelines Aug. 21 that stated a human papillomavirus (HPV) test alone is as effective as the commonly used Pap smear.

Veterans who utilize Medicare and other fee-for-service health systems for prostate cancer care are more likely to receive guideline-discordant imaging than those treated at the Veterans Health Administration (VA), according to a study published Aug. 17 in JAMA Network Open.

Breast density laws have been on the books since 2009, with states increasingly joining the upward trend. But new research surveying more than 1,000 women found many remain confused and misinformed about such legislation.

New research from the American Cancer Society found cancer patients who reported experiencing better communication with a provider typically received more efficient care, fewer office visits and improved outcomes.

National lung cancer screening guidelines recommend discussing the benefits and harms of screening, but a new study found the quality of these conversations to be subpar.

Researchers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have created a machine-learning technique that reduces the toxic chemotherapy and radiotherapy doses for patients with the most aggressive form of brain cancer.

In the first-of-its-kind FDA-approved study, researchers from the University of Maryland School of Medicine are using MRI-guided focused ultrasound to open the blood-brain barrier to help deliver drugs for patients with glioblastoma.

“Treatment effect is more reliably determined on imaging at 90 days following SIRT, however imaging at one-month post-SIRT is still frequently performed,” Shamar Young, MD, and colleagues wrote. “This raises the question as to whether or not imaging at one month following SIRT is clinically warranted.”

Developing a personalized radiation therapy plan can take days—time that many cancer patients are unwilling to wait. But researchers have developed a new automated artificial intelligence (AI) software that can do the job in 20 minutes.

Endoscopic imaging experts have created an imaging catheter capable of producing higher quality images compared to traditional methods, researchers reported in a recent Nature Photonics study. The technique may improve cancer detection.

A new study funded by the Harvey L. Neiman Health Policy Institute in Virginia found that dense breast notification policies were associated with an increase in follow-up ultrasound.
