OBJECTIVE Clinical trials to date into the use of full-field digital mammography (FFDM) for breast cancer screening have shown variable results. The aim of this study was to review the use of FFDM in a population-based breast cancer screening program and to compare the results with screen-film mammography. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study included 188,823(More)

AIMS Most studies comparing full-field digital mammography (FFDM) with conventional screen-film mammography (SFM) have been radiology-based. The pathological implications of FFDM have received little attention in the literature, especially in the context of screening programmes. The primary objective of this retrospective study is to compare FFDM with SFM(More)
EUSOBI and 30 national breast radiology bodies support mammography for population-based screening, demonstrated to reduce breast cancer (BC) mortality and treatment impact. According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer, the reduction in mortality is 40 % for women aged 50–69 years taking up the invitation while the probability of(More)
AIM To determine whether there was a significant difference in the prevalence of emboli detected when patients underwent computed tomography pulmonary angiography (CTPA) in a craniocaudal direction versus a caudocranial direction. MATERIALS AND METHODS This was a prospective study of 203 consecutive patients attending for CTPA for suspected pulmonary(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to describe the imaging findings in 149 patients with pseudoangiomatous stromal hyperplasia (PASH) who had undergone at least 4 years of clinical follow-up for detection of subsequent malignancy. CONCLUSION PASH is a common entity that presents with benign imaging features without evidence of subsequent malignant(More)
S uperior vena cava (SVC) obstruction is commonly seen in patients with intrathoracic malignancies. Most cases are due to extrinsic compression by tumour masses. We present the case history of a man with SVC obstruction due instead to an intraluminal tumour which turned out to be adenocarcinoma of an unknown primary. A 54 year old chronic smoker presented(More)
