The findings support adopting F-18 DCFPyL PET/CT as the standard of care for prostate cancer staging, authors of a new Scientific Reports paper concluded.
The USPSTF’s update suggests that women should screen every other year, but the group's own modeling studies have cited the benefits of annual screening.
The task force cited insufficient evidence as the driver behind the decision to forego recommending supplemental screening.
These findings highlight a need for more stringent and standardized reporting guidelines relative to incidental findings, authors of the new study suggested.
Radiologists interpreting screening mammograms may be especially susceptible to falling victim to automation bias, as these exams are repetitive in nature.
Many new imaging solutions were on display at the world's largest health informatics conference, held at McCormick Place in Chicago.
Radiologist David Gruen, MD, discusses some of the overarching themes from the Healthcare Information Management Systems Society's annual meeting.
End-users of various radiology IT systems offer their assessment of the software in the annual KLAS Research 2023 Best in KLAS report.
Research offers new guidance on managing architectural distortion visualized on DBT exams
Multiple areas of architectural distortion visualized on digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) exams are likely to produce high-risk pathology results.
The National Comprehensive Cancer Network has published new patient-friendly breast cancer screening guidelines
The new guidelines put emphasis on the age at which average-risk women should begin annual screening and breast assessments.
Despite mandated coverage, nearly half of women are concerned about OOP breast cancer screening expenses
Women who skipped screening due to financial concerns outnumbered those who were not screened due to logistical issues such as scheduling and transportation conflicts, new survey data reveals.
Imaging surveillance program detects pancreatic cancer in its earliest stages
Individuals at high risk of pancreatic cancer benefit from annual imaging and have decreased mortality rates compared to those who forgo preventive screening.
CMS shoots down request to reconsider CTC cancer screening coverage
In the June 29 announcement, the ACR revealed CMS said the additional evidence provided to them was “insufficient” to support the reconsideration of their non-coverage decision.
Screening mammograms are not as effective as they once were
This is a trend that researchers believe will persist as disease management continues to improve.
DBT is better for women with increased breast cancer risks
For the research, special attention was paid to women with dense breasts and other factors that raise their risk of a breast cancer diagnosis.
Contrast enhanced breast MRI superior to CEM, but accessibility remains an obstacle
In addition to CE-MRI's increased sensitivity for identifying breast cancers, the researchers also found the modality had superior negative likelihood ratios with higher pre-test probabilities for safely ruling out malignancy.
