Medical Malpractice – Failure to diagnose breast cancer: new screening technologies and personalized approach may improve detection rate

In “Beyond Mammography: New Frontiers in Breast Cancer Screening”, American Journal of Medicine, Jennifer S. Drukteinis, MD (Moffitt Cancer Center), Blaise P. Mooney, MD, Chris I. Flowers, MBBS, Robert A. Gatenby, MD, look at a personalized approach to breast cancer screening using new technologies such as low-dose mammography, contrast-enhanced mammography, tomosynthesis, automated whole breast ultrasound, molecular imaging, and magnetic resonance imaging. The study says this approach may lead to a better detection of breast cancer both in the general population and in high-risk groups, such as women with dense breasts.
