When patients were asked about their preference between abbreviated breast MRI and mammography for screening, the majority chose abbreviated breast MRI in this Australian study.

A high cancer detection rate and a positive predictive value greater than mammography also were reported.

Abbreviated breast MRI is effective and is the preferred screening modality for 75% of women, Australian researchers have reported. Their new study confirms that the concept of abbreviated MRI works, according to Dr. Christiane Kuhl of Aachen, Germany.

Dense breast tissue makes it extremely challenging to detect cancerous lesions on a mammogram. Since more than 50% of women over 40 have dense breasts, millions of women could benefit from having improved screening options that go beyond traditional mammography.

Research shows that MRI could be effective not only in the screening of women at high risk of breast cancer, but also for those at average risk with dense breasts.

Evaluating AI technology in clinical situations is ideal to understanding how it might impact patient care. But it is challenging to conduct a comprehensive study in a true clinical setting, and most studies on AI for breast cancer screening are either standalone and/or retrospective.

Breast MRI screening for women with extremely dense breasts can be cost-effective and result in about twice as many quality-adjusted life years gained over mammography, according to Dutch research.

The study authors also note that advancements, such as and abbreviated MRI, could help make MRI screening less expensive in the future.

MRI screening every four years is about 12% more cost-effective than mammography every two years for women with dense breasts, according to Dutch research published September 29 in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.

Earlier this year, WHO announced breast cancer is the world’s most commonly diagnosed form of cancer.

With so many lives impacted, it is important we come together to raise awareness and inspire action this month and throughout the year.

Together, we can help solve key challenges in detection, diagnosis, and treatment to create better outcomes for patients and ultimately save more lives around the world.

Supplemental breast cancer screening based on breast density is among the 13 new topics added this year to the ACR Appropriateness Criteria. Abbreviated breast MRI has been incorporated into these guidelines—one of the first signs we’ve seen that it may be gaining traction on a broader scale.

Are you seeing an increase in abbreviated breast MRI screenings? What are your thoughts on this?

To help find breast cancer earlier and save more lives, removing barriers to screening is critical. Findings from a recently published study show the financial burden of undergoing breast MRI screening can act as one of these barriers: https://lnkd.in/etB9sn4C.

The good news is several states—including Connecticut, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania—now have laws requiring insurance coverage for supplemental breast MRI screening for women who have dense breasts and other high-risk factors.

Is breast MRI screening covered in your state? If not, is mandated coverage being considered?

The threat of out-of-pocket costs from breast MRI may negatively affect women at greater risk of breast cancer, blocking their access to needed care, according to a study published July 28 in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.

If detected early enough, the five-year survival rate for breast cancer is greater than 90%. Unfortunately, more than 300,000 women in the U.S alone are expected to be diagnosed with breast cancer this year and over 43,000 are expected to die from it.

These statistics are completely unacceptable, especially with the technological advancements being made at such a rapid pace.

Paragon Biosciences' portfolio company, Qlarity Imaging, has developed AI-driven software to help radiologists detect and diagnose breast abnormalities sooner and more accurately. Studies have shown nearly a 40% reduction in missed breast cancers using this innovative technology.

Dense breast tissue makes it very challenging to detect cancerous lesions on a mammogram. With more than 50% of women over 40 having dense breasts, millions of women would benefit from having improved breast cancer screening options, such as abbreviated MRI, that go beyond the current standard of care.

Recognizing that many patients may not know where to go for abbreviated MRI screening, My Density Matters provided a listing of known locations along with details about the screening method: https://tinyurl.com/43krrz6x

In our never ending quest to empower women to go get the additional breast cancer screening they need, we are so pleased to provide a list of Abbreviated MRI sites across the county. Find it here: https://tinyurl.com/43krrz6x

Abr. MRI in simple terms is a shorter/faster breast MRI that is now being used by some facilities as additional breast cancer screening after mammography in women with dense breasts. It is not yet covered by insurance, so it is 'self-pay' only. Most facilities listed their price. It has been proven to find many more breast cancers in women with dense breasts! Check it out!

Even before the pandemic, chronic stress and burnout were major issues among medical professionals. This article summarizes insights from an ECR 2021 session that addressed why we feel burned out and helpful ways to combat this feeling.

In your experience, what strategies—either on an individual or organizational level—have been helpful in managing chronic stress and burnout?

https://www.auntminnie.com/index.aspx?sec=nws&sub=rad&pag=dis&ItemID=131780

Medical professionals trying to cope with burnout should recognize that the condition originates in an evolutionary stress response to threats -- a response we share with the animal kingdom. Recognizing burnout's beastly origins is the first step in getting out of the rat race.

How much does regularly screening for breast cancer impact chances of survival? A newly published study examined this question, with the results even surprising the authors: https://www.auntminnie.com/index.aspx?sec=sup&sub=wom&pag=dis&ItemID=131679

Skipping even one screening mammogram can increase a woman's risk of dying from breast cancer, according to a March 2 study involving more than half a million Swedish women. Conversely, more regular screening greatly reduces risk.
