Which Modality for Which Breast Density?

2016 12 Jan

A systematic review of available data on dense breasts has found that determinations of breast density can be unreliable and that as many as 19 percent of women are reclassified as dense rather than non-dense or vice versa from one mammogram to the next.The review, conducted by researchers at UC Davis and other institutions, also found that supplemental...

Study: Does Breast Density Increase Breast Cancer Risk?

2015 09 Dec

Women with dense breast often worry about breast cancer, but new research from Johns Hopkins shows that breast density alone does not affect their risk. Age and body fat are more important co-factors that contribute to breast cancer risk, according to the Johns Hopkins study published in the journal European Radiology.Previous studies suggest that women...

Pre-Clinical Study: Better Mammograms in Dense Tissue

2015 23 Sep

Breast density reduces the accuracy of mammography when screening for breast cancer. Now a new mammogram procedure — already tested in pre-clinical studies of mice — could be more reliable in detecting breast cancer in women with dense mammary tissues, according to a new study published in the journal ACS Nano. The new technique involved injecting gold... Read more

EUSOBI 2015: Implications of Dense Breasts

2015 21 Sep

Breast density remains a hot topic in radiology, and although much is known about the impact of breast density on mammographic screening, what to do with that information is not always clear. Polarisation of opinion on the pros and cons of mammographic screening has left women confused, and hindered early detection of breast cancer, according to Professor... Read more

Technology Predicts Breast Cancer Risk

2015 23 Apr

Researchers at The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) claim that a new "breast cancer risk analysis system" is on track to predict if and when breast cancer will appear. Although not yet complete, the computer-aided detection system has proved successful in early studies — with an accuracy of 70 percent when it came to predicting which women would... Read more

MRI Detects Breast Cancer with High Accuracy

2015 10 Apr

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can definitively diagnose around 90 percent of all breast cancers, compared to only 37.5 percent detection rate for the combined methods of mammography and ultrasound. This is the key finding of a study reported in the Journal of Clinical Oncology. The study was conducted at the University Department of Radiology and... Read more
