According to ARRS’ American Journal of Roentgenology (AJR), return to routine screening for BI-RADS 3 lesions on supplemental automated whole-breast US (ABUS) substantially reduces the recall rate, while being unlikely to result in adverse outcome

Normal right mediolateral oblique (A) and craniocarudal (B) view screening mammograms demonstrate density C breasts. Coronal (C), transverse (D), and reconstructed lateral (E) views from supplemental automatic breast ultrasound (ABUS) demonstrates 7 mm circumscribed slightly hypoechoic circumscribed lesion at 11 o’clock position in right breast. Lesion was classified as BI-RADS 3. Patient has undergone yearly mammograms for 4 years following the ABUS examination with no breast cancer diagnosis.

The inherent spectral capabilities of Mayo Clinic's new third-generation photon-counting CT research scanner allows clear visualization of the intact portions of the coronary artery lumen (arrowhead) by reducing the bright signal from the dense coronary calcifications (arrows).

The inherent spectral capabilities of Mayo Clinic's new third-generation photon-counting CT research scanner allows clear visualization of the intact portions of the coronary artery lumen (arrowhead) by reducing the bright signal from the dense coronary calcifications (arrows). Spectral CT is able to bin photos on different energies that can be used to enhance or subtract chemical elements from the images based on their spectral signature, such as calcium shown here, and iodine.
