Two weeks ago, about 50 000 attendees descended on Chicago for the biggest medical imaging meeting in the world—the 103rd annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA 2017).
Associate Professor Gelareh Farshid, of BreastScreen South Australia has released a perspective supporting routine reporting of breast density in the Australian breast screening program.
Good breast compression is integral during mammography. Sufficient compression is needed to separate internal breast structures, minimize patient motion and reduce the thickness of the breast (thus increasing image contrast...

Breast imaging experience corresponds to greater agreement with automated density measurement
The University of California San Francisco recently hosted the 8th International Breast Densitometry and Breast Cancer Risk Assessment Workshop (June 7 – 9).
Increased breast density is a key driver of breast cancer risk from long-term hormone replacement therapy use
Higher Volpara density leads to higher cancer rate and lower screening sensitivity of mammography.
The annual conference of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) has recently concluded in Chicago (November 27-December 2), with Volpara featuring in three talks and one poster presentation.
