A free lung cancer screening program in Augusta, Georgia, found more than double the lung cancer rate of previous screenings.
Patients were more comfortable with their decisions about lung cancer screening after a shared decision-making visit.
The simple question: "Would you like to talk about what this means?" can lead to more thorough discussions about scan results and prognoses, better preparing patients to make informed treatment decisions.
Researchers compared the ability of an artificial-intelligence algorithm to recognize and classify skin cancers with the clinical evaluations of dermatologists.
Although previous clinical trials have demonstrated that antiangiogenetic chemotherapy is not effective in GBM, researchers conducted a retrospective of review of perfusion MR images to determine if a phenotypic subtype of GBM may respond to antiangiogenic chemotherapy.
Consensus statement presents guidelines for prostate magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in patients with negative biopsy.
In this study, researchers assessed data on women who underwent breast cancer treatment to identify the factors associated with posttreatment imaging use.
A novel sentinel lymph node (SLN) radiotracer, 99mTC-rituximab, demonstrated nearly 100% detection/success rate in SLN and metastasis in breast cancer.
A new technique combines imaging and mathematics to identify aggressive forms of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), or stage 0 breast cancer, from nonaggressive varieties.
For nonsolid nodules identified by CT screening for lung cancer, annual screening with low-dose CT can eliminate the need for biopsy or surgery.
Using a computer algorithm to scan images of the esophagus for signs of early esophageal cancer is nearly as accurate as top specialists.
Supine Position Better Informs Surgeons About Tumor Size and Location Before Lumpectomy for Breast CancerJuly 14, 2016
Considerable deformity of the breast and tumor position occur when placing patients in the prone (face down) position to obtain pre-operative MRI of the breast, compared with placing patients in the supine (face up) position.
New screening device provides images with 6 times better contrast of breast tumors and approximately half the radiation dose of standard mammography.
A newly created tumor-specific fluorescent molecule combined with an imaging system guided surgeons to removing additional tumors not palpable or visible without fluorescence in patients with ovarian cancer.
Prostate-specific molecular imaging at initial biopsy and preoperative planning can accurately determine and delineate the extent of prostate cancer. The imaging technique was a type of PET/CT called 68Ga-PSMA PET/CT.
Most family physicians report discussing low-dose CT imaging with patients at high risk for lung cancer, but referrals for screening remain low, a study published in the journal Cancer has shown.
The altered metabolism of methionine, tryptophan, kynurenine, and 5-methylthioadenosine can drive the development of glioblastoma. Results also suggest ways to treat the cancer, slow its growth, and precisely elucidate its extent.
Scientists are developing a pill that illuminates only cancerous tumors, improving on current methods that can identify tumors but cannot conclusively determine whether they are cancerous
Similar survival seen for PET-CT-guided surveillance and planned neck dissection, but fewer operations.
A new analysis method for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data appears to reliably determine whether patients would need hormonal treatment only or also need chemotherapy.
Reliance on PET to Detect Lung or Esophageal Cancer Recurrence May Lead to Overuse of the Imaging ModalityMarch 09, 2016
In posttreatment follow-up of lung and esophageal cancer, PET scans might be overused to detect cancer recurrence. Furthermore, PET scan use to detect recurrence does not increase survival.
A program in a multifacility health care system is designed to enhance early detection of lung cancer through follow-up of nodules seen on thoracic imaging studies.
A new injectable agent causes cancer cells in a tumor to fluoresce, potentially enabling surgeons to locate and remove all of a cancerous tumor on the first attempt.
Ultrasound has comparable sensitivity in detecting breast cancer compared with mammography and should be considered when testing for the disease.
Additional breast cancers found with MRI are sometimes larger and potentially more aggressive than those found on mammography, and in some cases, may necessitate a change in treatment plan.
A method to better trace changes in cancers and treatment of the prostate and lung without the limitations associated with radiation has been developed.
An FDA-approved, magnetic nanoparticle and MRI identifies tumors most likely to respond to drugs delivered via nanoparticles.
Women with a certain type of lung nodule visible on lung cancer screening CT scans face a higher risk of lung cancer than men with similar nodules, according to a study presented at RSNA 2015.
With some training and selective food reinforcement, pigeons performed as well as humans in categorizing digitized slides and mammograms showing benign and malignant human breast tissue.
