May improve detection in dense breasts 2D plus 3D breast imaging increases cancer detection rates by 11%, and could be particularly useful in detecting cancer in women with dense breasts, a new study suggests. Researchers at Yale University Smilow Cancer Hospital in New Haven, CT, reviewed the screening mammograms of 14,684 patients. Forty-two cancers were found in 8,769 patients who had only 2D imaging (a cancer detection rate of 4.8 per 1,000), said Dr. Jaime Geisel, a lead author of...

Debate On Dense Breasts And Mammograms Rekindled
2012-08-22 05:46:05

Connie K. Ho for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Based on a new study, the discussion on whether the density of breasts can affect the image resolution of mammograms has been rekindled. To begin, past studies have stated that women with dense breasts have a greater risk of developing breast cancer than women who have breasts with more fatty tissue. Proponents of these studies have noted that it is difficult for mammograms to catch a developing tumor due to dense tissue and...

It is known that a high proportion of dense breast tissue, as seen with a mammogram, is associated with a high risk of breast cancer. But the role of non-dense fat tissue in the breast is less clear. New research published in BioMed Central's open access journal Breast Cancer Research separates the breast cancer risks associated with dense, fibroglandular tissue, and fat, and shows that large areas of either are independently associated with an increased risk. The mammograms of...

Half of Americans are diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives. According the National Cancer Institute, 192,370 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009, and more than 40,000 women will die from it this year alone. Medical physicists are leading the fight against breast cancer with the development of new imaging technologies and improving existing techniques. Mammography, the most common method for detecting breast cancer, misses up to 20 percent of breast cancer present...

For the most part, the effort to find new ways to battle cancer has been one of occasional small victories and many dead ends. But it has long been known that the sooner cancer can be detected, the better chance doctors have of beating it. Last week, it was announced that a new method of detecting breast cancer has shown real promise in its first large-scale test. The experimental method - molecular breast imaging, or MBI - uses a radioactive tracer that "lights up" cancer hiding inside...

By The Associated Press A radioactive tracer that "lights up" cancer hiding inside dense breasts showed promise in its first big test against mammograms, revealing more tumors and giving fewer false alarms, doctors reported Wednesday. The experimental method - molecular breast imaging, or MBI - would not replace mammograms for women at average risk of the disease. But it might become an additional tool for higher risk women with a lot of dense tissue that makes tumors hard to spot on...

WASHINGTON - Remember peeking through a View-Master? Scientists are using the same concept behind the classic kids' toy to try to see mammograms in 3-D. The goal: A better way to check for breast cancer in women with breasts too dense for today's mammograms to give a clear picture. Half of women younger than 50 and a third of women older than 50 are estimated to have dense breasts. Women with dense breasts have a higher risk of getting breast cancer, too. Only a mammogram can tell if your...

By Lauran Neergaard WASHINGTON - Remember peeking through a View-Master? Scientists are using the same concept behind the classic kids' toy to try to see mammograms in 3-D. The goal: A better way to check for breast cancer in women with breasts too dense for today's mammograms to give a clear picture. Radiologists donning 3-D glasses isn't the only potential aid. The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., is testing a new kind of breast camera that might challenge the images of those far...
