Synthetic mammography (SM) can be used as a replacement for digital mammography (DM) during digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT), leading to a significant reduction in radiation dose. But are radiologists utilizing SM?
Breast cancer screening using digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) detects more cancers than digital mammography (DM) in women of all density and age groups, according to new research published in Radiology.
Healthcare providers are working to communicate with patients about errors more and more, hoping that well-planned disclosure and apology processes can help limit legislative action and improve care. What is radiology’s role in this growing trend?
Women with breast arterial calcifications (BACs) are at an increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). According to a new analysis published in the European Journal of Radiology, this opens the door for mammograms to screen patients for both breast cancer and CVD at once.
