Computer analysis is not better than human clinical evaluation when it comes to measuring breast densityMay 17, 2018
1. Similar associations were observed with clinical BI-RADS and automated BI-RADS with respect to interval and screen-detected cancer. 2. Both automated and clinical BI-RADS showed similar discriminatory accuracy and mammography accuracy.

Survivorship plans for adolescent and young adult survivors need to consider the relative long-term survival for AYAs with certain cancers. Those with certain cancers may have excess long-term mortality.
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.
The researchers found that the choice to undergo future screenings appeared to be influenced by previous false-positive results for both men and women.
A review of the literature on follow-up after positive screening results led researchers to a consensus opinion on timing of diagnostic tests for 4 cancers: breast, cervical, colorectal, and lung.
