Tomosynthesis (3D mammography) is better able to show infiltrating ductal carcinoma than 2D mammography in women at increased risk of breast cancer, a new study shows. As part of the study, six breast imaging specialists reviewed both 2D and 3D mammography images of 56 cancers diagnosed in patients at intermediate or high risk of breast cancer. "We found that 41% (23/56 cancers) were better seen on tomosynthesis and 4% (2/56) were only seen on tomosynthesis," said Dr. Sarah O'Connell, a...

Women who receive “false-positive” mammography results may be at higher risk of breast cancer later in life, a new study suggests.

Screening mammography can sometimes produce false-positive results in disease-free women. ...

Recent studies have suggested that these lesions may represent true precursors with progression to invasive carcinoma. Due to the debate...


Word of the Day
cock-a-hoop
  • Exultant; jubilant; triumphant; on the high horse.

Therefore, 'cock-a-hoop' would 'liken a drunken man to a boastful and aggressive rooster.'
