A Recent Story Reminds Us That Thermography is Not a Substitute for Mammography

A recent news segment reminds us that thermography should not be used as a standalone method of breast cancer detection.

UCSF Radiologists Collaborate in Tanzania

The cancer burden in Sub-Saharan Africa is growing. A multi-disciplinary collaboration between UCSF, MUHAS, and Ocean Road Cancer Institute (OCRI) has formed to focus on global cancer research.

Mammography and CT Lung Cancer Screening Can Improve Population-Based Health Outcomes

Recent studies support UCSF Radiology's recommendation that annual mammography screening begin at age 40 for women of low or average risk. Mammography can also lead to another health benefit—an opportunity for women to receive lung cancer screening, if eligible.

Preventive Screening Guidelines for Physicians

Preventive imaging exams are designed to detect cancer and noncancerous health conditions in their early stages, when diseases are more treatable and curable. While physicians keep current with preventive care guidelines and recommend and encourage patients to have appropriate screenings, only a small portion of eligible patients receive recommended screenings.
