3D mammography did not bolster cancer detection or reduce recall visits in the 10% of women considered to have "extremely dense" breasts, radiologists explained in JAMA Network Open.
Boston Children’s Hospital clinicians sought the answer, testing screening simulation models with data from 29 years' worth of cancer outcomes.
With further refinement, the researchers say their convolutional neural network-based platform could help lighten sonographers’ ever-increasing workloads.
One of the radiologist's former patients said she wants her medical records so that another doctor can assess them, but the office is closed and she “can’t get in touch with anyone," according to a published report.
Treatment for COVID‐19 was either started or changed in 87.5% of the patients based on LUS findings, doctors reported in the Journal of Ultrasound in Medicine.
The Virginia Board of Medicine labeled Michael Bigg “incompetent to practice medicine and surgery" in its 61-page report issued earlier this month.
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.
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.
