The purpose of this study was to compare the diagnostic performance of contrast-enhanced spectral mammography (CESM) and ultrasound with that of standard digital mammography for breast cancer screening of women at intermediate risk who have dense breasts.

Contrast-enhanced spectral mammography (CESM) is a recently developed breast imaging technique. CESM relies on dual-energy acquisition following contrast agent injection to improve mammography sensiti...
Multiple studies in the first decade of the 21 century have established contrast-enhanced breast MRI as a screening modality for women with a hereditary or familial increased risk for the development ...
Patient advocacy has led to state-level legislative mandates for the release of personal mammographic breast density information to women undergoing screening mammography. More research is needed to u...
The purpose of this article is to discuss the essential steps involved in performing, interpreting, managing, and reporting findings on contrast-enhanced mammography for successful implementation into...
The purpose of this study was to determine the performance and added value of bilateral mammography in identifying cancers distant from sites of presenting breast symptoms in women 30-39 years old.
Women who attend for their screening mammogram will be recalled if an abnormality is detected on the screening mammogram. Calcifications account for 20% of the women recalled to second sta...
This research study is evaluating whether contrast enhanced mammography can be used as an alternative to breast Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) for cancer screening
A prospective observational multicenter study to compare the outcome of breast cancer surveillance using mammography, breast US, contrast-enhanced MRI, and diffusion-weighted MR imaging (D...
This research study is studying whether contrast enhanced mammography can predict if atypical ductal hyperplasia will progress to cancer. The device involved in this study is: -Con...
This is a feasibility study to evaluate dual-energy (DE) contrast-enhanced (CE) digital mammography to detect breast cancer in patients with increased breast density (BI-RADS category c or...
Measurement of relative composition of different BREAST tissue types often determined from MAMMOGRAPHY; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; or MRI.
Radiographic examination of the breast.
Substances used to allow enhanced visualization of tissues.
A rare, benign, inflammatory breast disease occurring in premenopausal women shortly after a recent pregnancy. The origin is unknown but it is commonly mistaken for malignancy and sometimes associated with BREAST FEEDING and the use of ORAL CONTRACEPTIVES.
A infiltrating (invasive) breast cancer, relatively uncommon, accounting for only 5%-10% of breast tumors in most series. It is often an area of ill-defined thickening in the breast, in contrast to the dominant lump characteristic of ductal carcinoma. It is typically composed of small cells in a linear arrangement with a tendency to grow around ducts and lobules. There is likelihood of axillary nodal involvement with metastasis to meningeal and serosal surfaces. (DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1205)

Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
