3D Mammography Significantly Reduces Breast Biopsy Rates

Images in a 63-year-old asymptomatic woman who was recalled because a new 8-mm mass was detected in the left breast at screening mam¬mography. (a) Left mediolateral oblique and (b) left mediolateral oblique spot compression mammograms show an 8-mm partly ill-defined mass (arrow) in the upper breast. (c) Left mediolateral oblique digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) image shows an 8-mm well-defined mass (arrow) in the upper breast. The mass was interpreted as benign at DBT and was coded R2 benign; however, it was indeterminate at full-field digital mammography. Targeted US of the breast revealed normal findings, and stereotactic biopsy yielded a diagnosis of micropapillary ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). Wide local surgical exci¬sion revealed a 5-mm high-grade DCIS. Credit: Radiological Society of North America

University of Texas at Dallas scientists have demonstrated that the growth rate of the majority of lung cancer cells relates directly to the availability of a crucial oxygen-metabolizing molecule. Researchers have engineered and extensively characterized new molecules aimed at starving the cancer cells of the molecule that allows them to proliferate so quickly.
