Study Finds No Difference Between Digital Breast Tomosynthesis and Digital Mammography in Cancer Detection for BI-RADS 4 Lesions

May 25, 2022

In a study of over 11,500 patients who had BI-RADS 4 breast lesions with no prior history of breast cancer, researchers found no statistically significant differences between digital mammography and digital breast tomosynthesis in cancer detection rates or biopsy-derived positive predictive value.

Is Digital Breast Tomosynthesis Superior to Digital Mammography?

May 23, 2022

A closer look at the literature suggests the combination of digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) and two-dimensional (2D) digital mammography (DM) has relatively equivalent cancer detection rates as using DM alone, according to a recent presentation at the Society of Breast Imaging (SBI)/American College of Radiology (ACR) conference.

What is Your Radiology Delta?

May 23, 2022

Amid a glut of unnecessary imaging requests, common worklist frustrations and perceptions from other clinicians that they can interpret medical images just as well, recognizing your role as a humble difference maker may provide the ultimate RVU for patients.

Can AI-Powered Mammography Screening be a Game Changer?

April 25, 2022

In a retrospective study involving mammography screening in over 114,000 women, researchers found that an artificial intelligence model had comparable specificity and sensitivity to radiologist screenings, reduced false positive results by 25 percent and reduced radiologist workload by more than 62 percent.
