Back to Health A to Z. Some babies who have tongue-tie do not seem to be bothered by it. Tongue-tie is sometimes diagnosed during a baby's routine newborn checkbut it's not always easy to spot.
Digital breast tomosynthesis DBT increases the detection rate of small invasive breast cancers and decreases false positive callback rates on screening mammography. VAB is a less invasive alternative to excisional biopsy given minimal scarring, decreased morbidity, faster patient recovery time, and lower cost. S everal trials have demonstrated the superiority of screening and diagnostic mammography using digital breast tomosynthesis DBT over full-field 2D mammography, specifically demonstrating how DBT increases the detection rate of small invasive cancers and decreases false positive callback rates.

Mammographic breast density MBD is a strong risk factor for breast cancer. The spatial distribution of MBD in the breast is variable and dependent on physiological, genetic, environmental and pathological factors. This pilot study aims to define the spatial distribution and autocorrelation patterns of MBD in Chinese women aged 40—
Knowledge of one's fibroglandular breast density is important, because high density increases the risk of cancer and decreases the accuracy of mammograms. A comparision of a small breast cancer found in a patient without dense breast tissue leftand a tumor found in a woman with dense fibroglandular tissue. SecondLook Premier software from iCAD marks potential mass oval and calcifications rectangle on left breast with dense tissue.
The breasts are paired structures located on the anterior thoracic wall, in the pectoral region. They are present in both males and females, yet are more prominent in females following puberty. In females, the breasts contain the mammary glands — an accessory gland of the female reproductive system.
The chest thoracic cavity is a space that is enclosed by the spine, ribs and sternum breast bone and is separated from the abdomen below by the diaphragm. The chest cavity contains the heart, the thoracic aorta, lungs, and esophagus swallowing passage among other important organs. The wall of the chest cavity is made up of the rib cage and diaphragm.
USG of the breast is now an established modality. It is used in the characterisation of focal breast lesions as well as in the primary evaluation of mammographically dense breasts. It helps guide biopsies as well.
A diagnosis of breast cancer is life changing. Understanding one very important point—no one dies of breast cancer in their breast—is a very important starting point in choosing your treatment plan. Women and men die of breast cancer when it has spread outside of the breast and settles in distant organs and fails to respond to chemotherapy or radiation. Becoming educated about your personal situation is of the utmost importance.
