Final Results of the Prospective FH02 Mammographic Surveillance Study of Women Aged 35-39 at Increased Familial Risk of Breast Cancer.

EClinicalMedicine 2019 Jan;7:39-46

Cancer Research UK Centre for Epidemiology, Mathematics and Statistics, Wolfson Institute of Preventive Medicine' Charterhouse Square, London EC1M 6BQ, UK.

Background: Many women who are at increased risk of breast cancer due to a mother or sister diagnosed with breast cancer aged under 40 do not currently qualify for surveillance before 40 years of age. There are almost no available data to assess whether mammography screening aged 35-39 years would be effective in this group, in terms of detection of breast cancer at an early stage or cost effective.

Methods: A cohort screening study (FH02) with annual mammography was devised for women aged 35-39 to assess the sensitivity and screening performance and potential survival of women with identified tumours. Read More

Feasibility of Masood's cytological index for screening breast lesions in low resource setting.

Breast J 2019 Apr 10. Epub 2019 Apr 10.

Department of Pathology, Dayanand Medical College & Hospital, Ludhiana, India.

Fine needle aspiration cytology has long been an accepted diagnostic modality in combination with physical examination and mammography to investigate breast lesions. In the present era, more proficient methods such as stereotactic mammographically guided breast biopsy is the preferred choice, however, in low resource setting, FNAC still remains the most cost effective and sampling modality to diagnose breast cancer. With the intention to evaluate the efficacy and limitations of FNAC in evaluation of breast lesions in low resource setting, we employed the Masood's cytological staging system to stratify the breast lesions and correlate them with histopathology wherever possible.

Diagn Interv Imaging 2019 Apr 5. Epub 2019 Apr 5.

"Diagnostic Mammography" Medical Diagnostic Imaging Unit, Kifisias Avenue 362, Chalandri, 15233 Athens, Greece. Electronic address:

Three-dimensional automated breast ultrasound system (3D ABUS) is an innovation in breast ultrasound that has been developed to uncouple detection from image acquisition and to address the limitations of handheld ultrasound (HHUS). 3D ABUS provides a large field of view using high frequency transducers, producing high-resolution images and covering a large portion of the breast with one sweep. As more data become available on breast density and the impact of supplemental screening, 3D ABUS has gained wider acceptance as an adjunct tool to mammography. Read More

Angiomammography: A review of current evidences.

Diagn Interv Imaging 2019 Apr 5. Epub 2019 Apr 5.

Department of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology, Lausanne University Hospital and University of Lausanne, 1011 Lausanne, Switzerland.

Although mammography is currently the imaging technique of choice for screening and diagnosis, it has some limitations, especially in patients with high-density breasts. The evolution from film screen to full-field digital mammography has recently led to the development of new imaging techniques, which are less expensive and widely available. Contrast-enhanced spectral mammography (CESM) is one of them, coupling X-ray breast imaging to the intravenous administration of an iodinated contrast material. Read More

Relationships Between Health Care Disparities and Coverage Policies for Breast, Colon, and Lung Cancer Screening.

J Am Coll Radiol 2019 Apr;16(4 Pt B):580-585

Department of Radiology, National Jewish Health, Denver, Colorado.

Disparities in outcomes exist for breast, colon, and lung cancer among diverse populations, particularly racial and ethnic underrepresented minorities (URMs) and individuals from lower socioeconomic status. For example, blacks experience mortality rates up to about 42% higher than whites for these cancers. Furthermore, although overall death rates have been declining, the differential access to screening and care has aggravated disparities. Read More
