Morris Gad Praises Research in Breast Cancer Detection Methods
NEW YORK, Feb. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Medical News Today has released an article detailing new research that has improved breast cancer detection rates. According to the report, “Three-dimensional mammography combined with conventional breast imaging can increase breast cancer detection by 27 percent.” Morris Gad, who is involved in many philanthropies and supports such research, congratulates researchers on their findings and encourages future initiatives to continue to build upon the success that today’s studies have achieved.
The article explains that the research was conducted by experts working at the University of Olso in Norway. Originally, the results of their efforts were published in “Radiology,” a scholarly journal. In addition to the findings listed above, the study found that false-positives were decreased by 15 percent when using the combined three-dimensional mammography, or tomosynthesis, alongside traditional imaging practices.
Per Skaane, MD, PhD, who was one of the researchers working on the study, explains: “The overall actual number of women recalled as a result of arbitration was larger for those initially assigned a positive score in mammography plus tomosynthesis. However, the concordant increase in the detection of 24 additional cancers resulted in a similar positive predictive value for the cases ultimately recalled for arbitration.”
Gad is ecstatic to hear that detection efforts have been improved for individuals who have breast cancer, as he understands that this is a life-threatening disease that impacts not only the people who have it, but also those who care about them.
“The advancements in modern technology are quite revolutionary,” asserts Morris Gad. “The amount of research and dedication that are being put into preventing and stopping breast cancer, which is a horrific disease, is inspiring. Hopefully, sometime in the near future, we will not only be able to detect breast cancer, but we will be able to prevent it.”
Gad encourages researchers to continue in their groundbreaking efforts to better understand this disease, as well as develop new ways to detect, treat, and hopefully, one day, prevent and cure it. Gad urges individuals who are looking for new philanthropic opportunities to consider donating to breast cancer research initiatives in an effort to provide researchers with the resources they need to carry out their work and, ultimately, improve the health of future generations.
