MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) useful as back-up to mammography:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Magnetic resonance imaging can detect small breast cancers missed by mammography in patients who are diagnosed with cancer of the lymph node, US researchers have said. Patients with lymph node cancers are often referred for mastectomy, but in a small number of these patients there is no detectable breast cancer by mammography. In one-third of subsequent "blind" mastectomies, no cancer is found. MRI after mammography may help prevent unnecessary mastectomies, said the researchers, from the University of Pennsylvania Medical Center in Philadelphia, in the August issue of Radiology.

Behave, Pharma: Why Culture Is Top Of The List

Drug pricing and access issues expose the pharmaceutical sector especially acutely to calls for companies to meet ethical and social goals, alongside commercial ones. Digital is up-ending pharma’s processes, its workplaces and its consumers. R&D productivity is spluttering. Amid this turmoil, CEOs highlight company culture – the way an organization behaves – as a crucial ingredient for success. But what is a “right” culture? Organizational culture is neither static nor singular. It is continuously influenced by acquisitions, markets, new technologies and new generations. And pharma’s history suggests that culture change cannot happen without sufficient people change.
