OBJECTIVE To assess the performance of one-view digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) in breast cancer screening. METHODS The Malmö Breast Tomosynthesis Screening Trial is a prospective population-based one-arm study with a planned inclusion of 15000 participants; a random sample of women aged 40-74 years eligible for the screening programme. This is an(More)
The purpose of this study was to perform an initial investigation of the possibility to determine breast cancer growth rate with (14)C bomb-pulse dating. Tissues from 11 breast cancers, diagnosed in 1983, were retrieved from a regional biobank. The estimated average age of the majority of the samples overlapped the year of collection (1983) within 3σ Thus,(More)
OBJECTIVES To analyse false positives (FPs) in breast cancer screening with tomosynthesis (BT) vs. mammography (DM). METHODS The Malmö Breast Tomosynthesis Screening Trial (MBTST) is a prospective population-based study comparing one-view BT to DM in screening. This study is based on the first half of the MBTST population (n = 7,500). Differences in FP(More)
OBJECTIVES Breast Imaging-Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS) mammographic density categories are associated with considerable interobserver variability. Automated methods of measuring volumetric breast density may reduce variability and be valuable in risk and mammographic screening stratification. Our objective was to assess agreement of mammographic(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the efficiency of different methods of reading breast tomosynthesis (BT) image volumes. METHODS All viewing procedures consisted of free scroll volume browsing and three were combined with initial cine loops at three different frame rates (9, 14 and 25 fps). The presentation modes consisted of vertically and horizontally orientated(More)
