Week in review: Contrast-enhanced mammography | AI for prostate cancer staging | Minnies nominations

Dear AuntMinnie Member,

Contrast-enhanced mammography (CEM) has shown utility for supplemental breast cancer screening, yielding a similar cancer detection rate and potentially higher specificity than MRI in previous studies.

And most women would prefer CEM over MRI, if our top story this week is any indication. Researchers led by Wendie Berg, MD, PhD, of the University of Pittsburgh found that a majority of women who had received screening on both modalities favored CEM.

In another featured story in our Women's Imaging Community, functional MRI has demonstrated that prenatal maternal anxiety can have a long-term negative impact on the children of women with that condition.

AI for prostate cancer staging

Our second most highly read article this week featured an AI model that can stage prostate cancer patients based on prostate specific membrane antigen-ligand PET/CT imaging. In a presentation at the recent annual meeting of the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, researchers from Siemens Healthineers and the Lawson Health Research Institute in London shared how their technique can identify regions suspicious for cancer and determine staging.

You can get all of the details by reading our coverage or by visiting our Molecular Imaging Community, where you can also view other popular stories, such as how genomic data and tau PET can identify Alzheimer's disease and how F-18 flurpiridaz PET is effective in obese patients with coronary artery disease.

Minnies nominations

I'm excited to announce that the nomination period is now open for the 2023 Minnies, our annual awards recognizing the best and brightest in radiology! We'll be accepting nominations for 15 categories here up until midnight on August 13. Per tradition, the 2023 winners will then be selected by AuntMinnie.com's expert panel and announced in October 2023.
