AI model can provide boost for breast ultrasound interpretation
June 2, 2023 -- A new study has found that an artificial intelligence algorithm can extract the morphological features from early breast lesions, conduct effective and objective image analysis, and help improve patient outcome. Read More
Sharp rise occurs in referrals of young women to breast clinics
May 30, 2023 -- Increasing numbers of women under 35 are being referred to symptomatic breast clinics, resulting in greater demand for imaging services, despite unchanged and low incidence of breast cancer within this age group, researchers from Dublin have reported. Read More

May 26, 2023 -- High breast density does not have a significant impact on breast cancer survival once the cancer is established, authors from Lund University in Sweden reported on 23 May in the Breast. Read More
CEM on par with breast MRI in lobular breast cancer staging
May 22, 2023 -- Contrast-enhanced mammography (CEM) may be a viable alternative to breast MRI for preoperative staging of invasive lobular carcinoma, suggests a Dutch study led by Dr. Marc Lobbes, PhD, from Maastricht University. Read More
O-RADS MRI assists in evaluation of adnexal mass malignancy risk
May 17, 2023 -- O-RADS MRI scoring is an effective way to assess malignancy risk in adnexal masses referred after inconclusive ultrasound results, but improvements are needed for the metric, according to a group of authors led by Prof. Isabelle Thomassin-Nagara from Paris. Read More
Could learning curve lead to false-positive findings on DBT?
May 15, 2023 -- A Swedish study of nearly 15,000 women has found that digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) had a 1.6% false-positive recall rate -- higher than digital mammography, but lower than previous DBT trials. The new findings have been published in European Radiology. Read More
Mammo-guided biopsies prove effective for thin breast tissue
May 10, 2023 -- Mammography-guided, vacuum-assisted breast biopsy can help improve outcome in women with compressed, thin breasts. That's the key finding of new research published on 5 May. Read More

Breast radiologists impacted by automation bias when using AI
May 8, 2023 -- No matter the experience level, radiologists are prone to automation bias when reading mammograms while being supported by artificial intelligence (AI)-based software, suggest findings published on 2 May in Radiology. Read More
Combining PET/CT and MRI can predict outcome in cervical cancer
May 3, 2023 -- The combination of PET/CT and MRI response assessment after chemoradiotherapy in cases of locally advanced cervical carcinoma (LACC) is a more accurate predictor of patient outcome than either modality alone, U.K. researchers have reported in a new award-winning study. Read More
