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

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

Abbreviated breast MRI is promising, but must also overcome concerns related to cost and access, one expert noted in an editorial accompanying a new JAMA study.

Researchers analyzed Medicare claims data on more than 1 million women ages 70 to 84 to reach their conclusions.

Raleigh Radiology Blue Ridge had previously halted all mammography exams after an ACR and FDA review found technical quality issues in a set of its images.

Annual mammography screenings find cancer in patients at a less advanced stage than those who have a mammogram every two years, according to a new study presented at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America.

Breast density awareness is higher than it was five years ago, but there's much more work to be done, said authors of a new study published in the Journal of the American College of Radiology.

Nearly one in five inductions of labor lead to a required emergency C-section, but current methods to predict such events are largely subjective with low predictive accuracy.

Manufacturers, hospitals, physicians and patient advocates have put significant marketing resources—including millions of dollars—into selling 3D mammograms to women, despite little evidence the modality is better than traditional mammography.

“A better understanding of how age and comorbid conditions affect mammography use may help target specific populations and improve use of preventive care," wrote Cindy Yuan, MD, PhD, with the University of Chicago’s Department of Radiology, and colleagues.

More than 50% of the 43.7 million foreign-born people living in the U.S. are female—that figure is only expected to grow, explained lead author Tainya Clarke, PhD, MPH.

An algorithm designed to unfold MRI scans of the placenta may allow doctors to more accurately identify and treat issues with the organ during pregnancy, according to new research out of MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory.
