A new study in Radiology suggests that annual breast cancer screening from age 40 to at least 79 reduces mortality significantly with minimal risks, challenging previous recommendations and emphasizing the benefits of early detection.
Breast radiologist Linda Hovanessian Larsen, MD, is supporting the new U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommendations for mammography starting at age 40, highlighting their potential to address disparities in breast cancer screening and treatment.Read More
Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have discovered that by using a mathematical model to monitor changes in breast density over time in mammograms, they can better identify women at high risk of breast cancer and even predict which breast may be affected.Read More
The Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) has concluded the RSNA Screening Mammography Breast Cancer Detection AI Challenge, which encouraged participants to develop AI models for accurate breast cancer detection from mammography images, with the winning teams providing promising solutions that will further the study of AI tools’ performance in clinical settings.Read More
The Contrast-Enhanced Mammography Imaging Screening Trial, a clinical trial to determine if contrast-enhanced mammography improves breast cancer detection and reduces false-positive exams in women with dense breasts, has enrolled its first patients.Read More
Incorrect advice by an AI-based decision support system could seriously impair the performance of radiologists at every level of expertise when reading mammograms, according to a new study.Read More
