With the availability of tomosynthesis mammography, should women at high risk for developing breast cancer still undergo annual MRI?
BALTIMORE, MD—For more aggressive cases of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), posttreatment surveillance with molecular imaging could mean the early start of a new, life-saving treatment. This was presented at the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) 2015 Annual Meeting.
A new, accurate imaging technique, combining photoacoustics with nanosensors, has been developed for the noninvasive screening of lymph nodes for metastatic cancer.
Preoperative navigated transcranial magnetic stimulation (nTMS) analysis of motor areas can improve the prognosis for patients with malignant brain tumors.
PET-CT guided active surveillance for patients with locally advanced head and neck squamous cell cancer is an option over node dissection, per analysis data presented at the 2015 American Society of Clinical Oncology annual meeting.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can provide vital information for predicting the odds of breast cancer development.
Tomosynthesis detects 40% more breast cancers than traditional mammography does, according to a major screening study.
Digital breast tomosynthesis increases the rate of cancer detection in women with dense breast tissue by as much as 67%, according to research.
Although FDG PET/CT is appropriate for systemic staging of newly diagnosed stage III breast cancer, the technique may not be equally valuable for all breast cancer histologies, research indicates.
A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-based screening program for persons at high risk of pancreatic cancer identified pancreatic lesions in 40% of patients, according to an online report.
For men with nonmetastatic castration resistant prostate cancer with a negative bone scan after diagnosis, factors associated with a second bone scan include higher PSA, shorter PSA doubling time, and faster PSA velocity; but under- and over-imaging may also be a factor.
Study data suggests that magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) could one day make biopsies more effective, or even replace them altogether, via noninvasive detection of telltale sugar molecules shed by the outer membranes of cancerous cells.
Present barriers for the usual dosimetry accompanying photodynamic therapy (PDT) for late-stage pancreatic cancer can be overcome via clinical technologies.
When low-dose computed tomography is used for second and subsequent lung cancer screening, the rate of repeating early repeat scans for suspicious findings decreased by more than 80%.

The International Lymphoma Radiation Oncology Group (ILROG) has issued a guideline outlining use of 3-D computed tomography (CT)-based radiation therapy planning.
An association of high rates of inappropriate imaging for prostate cancer and breast cancer found in a study of Medicare beneficiaries suggests that regional culture could contribute to inappropriate imaging.
Detection of asymptomatic thyroid nodules has increased, and the majority of benign thyroid nodules examined did not lead to a diagnosis of thyroid cancer, according to a recent study.
