Dear Women's Imaging Insider,

We start the new year with an old, familiar, and favorite topic: breast imaging. The Insider Exclusive offers the latest news in conebeam breast CT. The folks who are working with this modality are quick to point out that it's not ready for prime time yet, but that it does show promise as a powerful diagnostic tool. Click here to learn more.

Speaking of advances in cancer detection methods, you can read more on digital breast tomosynthesis and its ability to boost cancer detection while reducing callback rates. For the details, click here.

You'll also want to visit the Women's Imaging Digital Community for articles on the reproducibility of computer-aided detection software in cancer detection, the survival rates for women who adhere to breast cancer screening guidelines, the dollars and cents associated with full-field digital mammographic (FFDM) screening, how older women can still benefit from regular screening, and why the benefits of MR screening in high-risk women outweigh the costs.

Finally, you may recall that we recently featured a state-by-state breakdown of Medicaid FFDM reimbursement rates. Now you can review that same information in a dazzling interactive map format (as a bonus you can test your knowledge of U.S. geography). Click here to have a look.

Last but not least, this will be my last Women's Imaging Insider editor's note as my esteemed colleague, Kate Madden Yee, will now helm the Women's Imaging Digital Community. I'd like to thank you for your time and attention all these years. With that, I say "goodbye" and leave you in Kate's capable hands.
