Dear Women’s Imaging Insider,

In the age of personalized care, breast radiologists and clinicians alike are continuing to pinpoint specific factors impacting people’s risk of developing breast cancer.

One team out of the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, FL recently explored how benign breast disease detected on percutaneous biopsy is tied to women’s breast cancer risk. It found that the risk is similar to benign breast disease found via surgical biopsy. Read what else the team found in this edition’s featured article.

Also, the team was recently in Chicago for the 2023 RSNA annual meeting, where many studies in breast cancer detection and risk assessment were presented.

One study presented by Robert Smith, PhD, of the American Cancer Society's Center for Cancer Screening found that mammography should still be the gold standard for preventing advanced, life-threatening breast cancers.

Another study showed that contrast-enhanced mammography (CEM) confirms the effectiveness of ultrasound-guided cryoablation and could serve as a reliable annual follow-up exam.

Also from RSNA, a study demonstrated how an AI algorithm correctly flagged minimal signs on digital mammography and digital breast tomosynthesis, as well as reading error misses.

Plus, the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium recently took place, presenting even more breast imaging-related research. Check out the following stories from the symposium:
