A Simulation Model Investigating the Impact of Tumor Volume Doubling Time and Mammographic Tumor Detectability on Screening Outcomes in Women Aged 40-49 Years

Stephanie Rutledge (Bailey), Sigal B, Sylvia Plevritis
Journal of the National Cancer Institute , 2010

Background: Compared with women aged 50-69 years, the lower sensitivity of mammographic screening in women aged 40-49 years is largely attributed to the lower mammographic tumor detectability and faster tumor growth in the younger women.

Incidental Extracardiac Findings at Coronary CT: Clinical and Economic Impact

Lee CI, Tsai EB, Sigal BM, Sylvia Plevritis, Alan Garber, Rubin G
American Journal of Roentgenology , 2010

OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of incidental extracardiac findings on coronary CT, to determine the associated downstream resource utilization, and to estimate additional costs per patient related to the associated diagnostic workup.

Cost-effectiveness of Screening BRCA1/2 Mutation Carriers With Breast Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Sylvia K. Plevritis, AW Kurian, BM Sigal, BL Daniel, DM Ikeda, FE Stockdale, Alan Garber
Journal of the American Medical Association , 2006

Context:

Women with inherited BRCA1/2 mutations are at high risk for breast cancer, which mammography often misses. Screening with contrast-enhanced breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) detects cancer earlier but increases costs and results in more false-positive scans.

Objective:

To evaluate the cost-effectiveness of screening BRCA1/2 mutation carriers with mammography plus breast MRI compared with mammography alone.

Design, Setting, and Patients:
