Web-based resource helps women with breast reconstruction decisions after mastectomy

April 5, 2018 A new Psycho-Oncology study indicates that a free web-based decision aid that helps women with breast cancer make decisions regarding reconstruction surgery after mastectomy is likely cost-effective. The Australian study included 106 who accessed BRECONDA (Breast Reconstruction Decision Aid) for six months and received usual care and 116 women who received usual […]

Material left out of common processes for sequencing genetic material in cancer tumors may actually carry important information about why only some people respond to immunotherapy, possibly offering better insight than the type of material that is being sequenced, according to a study by Mount Sinai researchers published on April 3 in Cell Reports. Sequencing […]

New camera inspired by butterfly eyes improves image-guided cancer surgery
