A sizable number of breast cancer survivors do not undergo annual surveillance.
Researchers discovered that the likelihood of a poor prognosis was increased for cases of cancer diagnosed after screening mammography with negative results versus those diagnosed after mammography with positive results.
A review of surveillance mammography demonstrated the potential value of these images in post primary therapy treatment of women with breast cancer.
A logistic regression analysis determined the effect receiving a false-positive result had on future participation in cancer screenings.
A study using a cohort of women from Kaiser Permanente Washington evaluated the accuracy of risk assessment models for breast cancer that included classic risk factors with and without breast density as an additional factor during more than 10 years of follow-up.
Advances in breast imaging such as DBT offer better, clearer images of breast tissue that can identify even low-grade DCIS tumors. But will more sensitive imaging lead to improved outcomes or increased overtreatment?
Breast cancer screening using MRI versus mammography associated with more biopsies but lower cancer yieldFebruary 21, 2018
1. In women both with and without personal history of breast cancer (PHBC), screening MRI was associated with higher biopsy rates compared to mammography. 2. Screening MRI was also associated with lower rates of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) and invasive cancer findings when compared to mammography. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) Study Rundown: Screening 
An analysis of the 3 most adhered to protocols for screening mammography for breast cancer revealed that the greatest benefit is achieved with annual screening beginning at age 40 years.
Supplementation with vitamin D3 in premenopausal women does not have a significant effect on breast density percentage, nor does it reduce breast cancer risk.
Screening mammography programs increased early detection of tumors, improving outcomes for those women; however, these programs also increased detection of tumors that would never pose a clinical problem.
Ethnic Differences, Cultural Barriers Negatively Impact Mammography Follow-up Among Asian Ethnic GroupsJune 23, 2017
Follow-up after abnormal results on mammography is more likely to be delayed among Asian American women compared with white women, and varies between different Asian ethnicities.
This fact sheet reviews the types of mammograms, false-positive and false-negative results, digital mammography, and tomosynthesis mammography.
Digital mammography has improved breast cancer detection, increased biopsies.
Digital breast tomosynthesis used with full-field digital mammography has the potential to reduce call-back rates for breast examinations.
High mammographic breast density is a risk factor for primary breast cancer. In this study, a potential correlation with contralateral breast cancer was investigated.
Women who experience a false positive mammogram were more likely to delay their subsequent screening, potentially increasing the risk of having late stage breast cancer at diagnosis.
An assessment of the use of mammography and colonoscopy among fee-for-service Medicare beneficiaries before and after the Affordable Care Act demonstrates the impact of out-of-pocket costs in this population.
A review of data from 2 Danish cancer registries revealed the incidence of overdiagnosis of tumors not likely to affect a patient's health during her lifetime and diagnosis of advanced tumors in a program offering biennial mammography for women aged 50 to 69 years.
Features mainly linked to mammographic breast density are key in influencing a classification of normal.
In this study, researchers assessed data on women who underwent breast cancer treatment to identify the factors associated with posttreatment imaging use.
Natural language processing (NLP) software correlated key characteristics expressed verbally in mammography reports with pathologic findings, providing an accurate indication for biopsy referral.
Skilled radiologists see abnormalities immediately, and researchers want to learn how they do it.
The definition of dense breasts can range from 6.3 to 84.5 percent of patients, depending on radiologist.
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.
Latina women in the United States nearly doubled their rate of screening for breast cancer after visits from a health-promoting promotora.
The amount of calcium in the arteries of the breast, readily visible on digital mammography, is linked to the level of calcium buildup in the coronary arteries.
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
Population-based screening for breast cancer with universal biennial mammography resulted in a substantial reduction in breast cancer deaths, while risk-based biennial mammography resulted in only a modest benefit.
Diabetes treatments, such as diet or pills (eg, metformin), decrease mammographic density, whereas insulin may increase mammographic density.
