INTERVIEW WITH PROFESSOR SRIRANG MANOHAR   Today, techniques for detecting breast cancer, ie x-ray mammography, ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI ), have several disadvantages. One of the most important ones is that they cannot clearly distinguish a tumour from a benign abnormality or even healthy tissue. The end result is that...Read more

New research finds that lower screening mammography recall rates – the rates at which women are called back for additional testing based on suspicious findings – correlate with higher rates of breast cancers detected between screenings (or interval cancers). Analysis of some 5 million screening episodes from 84 screening facilities in the UK showed...Read more

Mammography screening has been helpful in lowering breast cancer mortality, but there is ongoing debate on how often women should be screened. A new study has found that biennial mammography screening is associated with advanced-stage breast cancer compared with annual screening. Additionally, women undergoing screenings every two years tended...Read more

Mammography provides early detection when breast cancer treatments are more successful. Unfortunately, mammography is less sensitive in women with dense than with fatty breast tissue. This is unfortunate because the breast cancer risk is three- to six times higher in dense rather than fatty breast tissue and two times higher than that of the average...Read more

Over the last ten years, digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) has continued to provide better cancer detection with fewer false positives than 2D digital mammography. At RSNA 2021, Dr Liane E Philpotts of Yale School of Medicine presented a study comparing DBT’s performance to 2D mammography over a ten-year period.    An X-ray source travels in...Read more
