Ella Health has opened a center in Pike Creek, DE, to deliver an improved breast cancer screening experience with 3D mammography in a setting designed to be more like a spa than a clinic.
Digital direct radiography (DR) is significantly more effective than computed radiography (CR) at detecting breast cancer, according to a new study published online, May 14, in the journal Radiology.
Screening breast ultrasound performed after mammography on women with greater than 50% breast density detects an additional 3.4 cancers or high risk lesions per one thousand woman screened, a detection rate just under that of screening mammography alone for women with less dense breasts.

Early detection in breast cancer patients is increasing survival rates of women diagnosed with breast cancer.
More women are surviving longer after having early-stage breast cancer, but they are at risk of developing breast cancer again: a recurrence or a new cancer, in either breast.
Radiologists who interpret more mammograms and spend some time reading diagnostic mammograms do better at determining which suspicious breast lesions are cancer.
