Dear Women's Imaging Insider,

Prompt and accurate identification of axillary node and internal mammary node metastases in patients with invasive breast cancer is essential to determine the prognosis and decide on the most appropriate treatment.

Authors from Istanbul, Turkey, have shared their experiences of this important area in a new paper posted by the European Journal of Radiology. Don't miss our report, which is today's top article.

The use of artificial intelligence (AI) in breast imaging was a central theme at the RSNA annual meeting. Among the highlights were research findings from a team in Linköping in Sweden, along with results presented by a group in Central Germany.

Support is also growing for the use of abbreviated breast MRI as a viable alternative to conventional MRI when it comes to high-risk supplemental screening. In another story from RSNA 2022, we've summarized some study results that deserve a close look.

The Chicago congress was a particularly memorable occasion for Dr. Berat Bersu Ozcan, a research fellow in Dallas who received her medical training at Turkey's Hacettepe University. Her digital poster about improving the quality of life of patients through more widely employed breast health initiatives received a prestigious magna cum laude award.

In other news, Italian investigators have described how ultrasound detected signs of endometriosis in approximately one-third of young women presenting with severe dysmenorrhea. Young patients with dysmenorrhea should be referred to an expert sonographer to minimize the delay between the onset of symptoms and diagnosis, the authors stated.

This letter has highlighted some of the numerous articles posted in the Women's Imaging Community over recent weeks. Please take a close look at the full list below, and feel free to contact me if you have ideas for future coverage.
