Breast Cancer Death Rates Decreasing in U.S.

Breast cancer death rates in the U.S. are decreasing according to the American Cancer Society, and the decline is attributed to the benefits of annual mammograms for early detection and new treatment programs that help patients better manage their cancer.
Earlier detection of breast cancer is being made possible partly by powerful digital imaging technologies, and widespread implementation could be coming soon.
“Digital technologies show great promise in helping to detect breast cancer in certain patients,” said Dr. John M. Lewin, Diversified Radiology of Colorado, a leader in providing technologically advanced radiology imaging. “In fact, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is considering relaxing guidelines that may make it easier for manufacturers of digital mammography systems to bring new products to market faster.”
