Screening mammography finds more high-grade DCIS among older women.

Mammography alone is just as good as mammography with CAD, and less expensive, for detecting breast cancer.

Biennial screening mammography may detect more advanced cancers among premenopausal women than annual screening would.

Annual screening mammography can wait until age 45 for women at average risk of breast cancer.

Adding molecular breast imaging to mammography does add to screening cost, but it also increases cancer detection.

CCTA, when combined with calcium scoring, can rule out coronary artery disease in women with atypical chest pain.

Despite increase in referrals for mammography screening for high-risk women, actual screening numbers did not increase significantly.
