  • Six previous single-center studies and 3 multicenter trials have shown supplemental screening breast ultrasound significantly increases detection of node-negative invasive breast cancer in women with mammographically dense breast tissue on the first prevalence screen. Show Preview
  • Lung cancer screening is not established as a public health practice, yet the results of a recent large randomized controlled trial showed that screening with low-dose spiral computed tomography reduces lung cancer mortality. Show Preview
  • A new study led by researchers at Mount Sinai School of Medicine indicates that CT scans are more effective than traditional lung cancer detection methods at identifying aggressive lung cancers in their most treatable stages. Show Preview
  • Women aged 40–49 years with breast cancer detected with mammography were diagnosed at an earlier stage than possible without mammography, allowing for less invasive surgery, less toxic chemotherapy, and with lower rates of recurrence and disease-related mortality. Show Preview
  • In patients with intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH), early haemorrhage expansion affects clinical outcome. Show Preview
  • The objectives of this study were to examine the effective dose range and the test–retest reliability of florbetapir F 18 using, first, visual assessment by independent raters masked to clinical information and, second, semiautomated quantitative measures of cortical target area to cerebellum standardized uptake value ratios (SUVr) as primary outcome measures. Show Preview
  • According to a study by researchers at the Arnold School of Public Health at the University of South Carolina and published in the journal, Cancer, training more African-American primary care physicians to do colonoscopies could improve access and help reduce colorectal cancer disparities.

  • The structure of the brain as a product of morphogenesis is difficult to reconcile with the observed complexity of cerebral connectivity. Show Preview
