Women overestimate breast cancer risk, prefer biopsy
December 15, 2017 -- Most women tend to overestimate their risk of breast cancer, according to research presented at the recent RSNA 2017 meeting in Chicago.

SABCS: Is DBT worth the higher cost?
December 11, 2017 -- Digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) screening costs more than a 2D mammography exam, but the technology's advocates argue that it's more effective, with higher cancer detection and lower recall rates. So is the extra money worth it? Yes, according to research presented at the 2017 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS).  Discuss
PET/MRI outclasses MRI alone for pelvic cancer recurrence
December 11, 2017 -- PET/MRI can better detect and classify local lesions and distant metastases in women suspected of having recurrent pelvic cancer than MRI alone, according to a study presented at the recent RSNA 2017 annual meeting.  Discuss
SABCS: Biannual breast MRI best for young women at high risk
December 11, 2017 -- For young women with a high genetic risk of breast cancer, twice-yearly MRI exams are more effective for detecting early disease than an annual mammogram, according to new research presented at the 2017 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS).  Discuss
At-risk women not receiving breast MRI scans
December 8, 2017 -- Community practices are not following guidelines for breast cancer screening with MRI in women at increased risk of the disease, according to a new study published online December 7 in the Journal of General Internal Medicine.  Discuss
Breast ultrasound traits help predict cancer prognosis
December 7, 2017 -- Certain features of invasive breast cancer identified on ultrasound can help clinicians understand a woman's prognosis before she undergoes surgery, according to research presented at the recent RSNA 2017 meeting in Chicago.  Discuss
DBT finds smaller cancers than 2D mammography does
December 6, 2017 -- Screening with digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) identifies smaller breast cancers with less axillary lymph node metastasis, compared with 2D screening mammography, according to research presented at the recent RSNA 2017 meeting in Chicago.  Discuss
