New Studies of Interest
- A population-based study published in JAMA, Breast Cancer Incidence After a False-Positive Mammography Result, found that breast cancer risk within 20 years of a screening mammogram was higher in women who received a false-positive mammogram result than in those who did not. The associated risk was higher among women aged 60-75 years, those without dense breasts, and those who had a biopsy. “This study suggests that breast cancer awareness should be emphasized long term for women with a false-positive mammography result; developing personalized surveillance programs can be beneficial for these women.”
- Just out in Radiology, Impact of Artificial Intelligence–driven Quality Improvement Software on Mammography Technical Repeat and Recall Rates.Summary, “Implementation of artificial intelligence software facilitated largescale mammographic image quality (IQ) evaluation and feedback, resulting in significant improvements in objectively measured IQ and fewer technical repeat and recall images.
