New USPSTF mammography guidelines serve up more of the same
January 11, 2016 -- They say a leopard can't change its spots, a saying that fits the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF). On January 12, the group released its final recommendations for screening mammography -- and the guidelines offer nothing new when compared to both the USPSTF's April draft recommendations and its 2009 version.  Discuss
Are radiologists vexed by some BI-RADS breast MRI categories?

Are Latina women getting the breast density message?
December 21, 2015 -- Not all women are getting the information they need about their breast tissue density and the availability of supplemental screening, despite the fact that almost half of U.S. states have passed legislation that mandates women be informed. Hispanic/Latina women in particular aren't getting the message.  Discuss
MBI: The unsung hero of dense breast imaging?
December 18, 2015 -- Is molecular breast imaging (MBI) the unsung hero for women with dense breast tissue? Researchers from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, believe it might be due to its ability to image tumor function. They presented their work with the modality at RSNA 2015.  Discuss
