Although the risk for cervical cancer later in life could be decreased by screening women until age 75, the study model showed that women who test HPV DNA negative to 14 high-risk HPV types and stop screening at 55 have a remaining lifetime cervical cancer risk of less than 1 percent, reported Talia Malagon, PhD, of McGill University in Montreal, and colleagues in Lancet Oncology.

    Ultrasound is one of the three main technologies used in medical imaging. It is more compact and affordable than nuclear magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques, and safer than X-rays.
