[Experiences about the breast diagnostic methods are accumulating year-to-year, rapidly. Therefore the current examination algorithm is changing continuously. New diagnostic and therapeutic modalities are entering into the daily practice. Some of them became obsolete, so far their application is becoming a faulty decision. Some other methods become obligatory steps in the diagnostics. These are the reasons why the up-to-date knowledge of the literature is mandatory. Systematic review of the most recent articles of the last two years (January 2005-December 2006) of breast radiological diagnostics and the actual place of the imaging and interventional methods are presented. The following topics are summarized: breast cancer screening with conventional and digital mammography, computer assisted diagnostics (CAD), high risk patients' screening, US, MRI, MSCT, PET/CT, diagnostic interventions, differential diagnostics, percutaneous tumour ablation, therapy-related questions in the diagnostic work up.]

[Diagnostic and therapeutical possibilities in constipation]

ILLÉS Anita, KIRÁLY Ágnes

[Constipation is a common gastrointestinal problem. The prevalence of symptoms related with constipation fluctuates from 3 to 20 per cent. Constipation occurs more frequently in the elderly people and in females and more frequent in case of inactivity and less fiber intake. Assesment of patients with severe constipation includes specialized investigations. Exclusion of primary organic causes has to be the first step, then metabolic, neurological and iatrogenic causes (such as medicament side effects, etc) have to be excluded. After these considerations special functional gastroenterological investigations are needed which contribute to the diagnosis and differential diagnosis of the cause of the constipation. Anorectal manometry, ballon expulsion test, defecography and colon transit studies allow us to distinguish between slow colon transit, colon inertia, different subtypes of outlet obstruction, and the constipation predominant irritable bowel syndrome. The evaluation of these specific studies leads to the exact diagnosis and appropriate treatement for their problem can be given to the patients, which always has to be individually planed in all cases.]

[May measurement month: analysis of the Hungarian results of years 2017 and 2019]

NEMCSIK János, PÁLL Dénes, JÁRAI Zoltán

[Cardiovascular (CV) diseases are not only the leading causes of mortality in Hungary, but also the mortality rate is excessively high compared with the average of European Union, so screening programs identifying subjects with elevated blood pressure (BP) is of utmost importance. May Measurement Month (MMM) is an annual global initiative which began in 2017 aimed at raising awareness of high BP. Hungary, through the Hungarian Society of Hypertension has joined the campaign of MMM from the beginning. The results of years 2017 and 2019 are presented in this paper. ]

[Five-year results of „Comprehensive Health Screening of Hungary 2010-2020”]

KISS István, BARNA István, DAIKI Tenno, DANKOVICS Gergely

[The „Comprehensive Health Screening of Hungary 2010-2020” have finished the 5th jubilee season. Int he past five year the program was working succesfully as a model for the primer and secondary prevention. The results of comprehensive screening have shown caracteristic picture about the health of population, and many people received education, informations about health protection, prevention and healthy lifestyle. More than 900 places, 7 millions of filled risk queries, 112 000 people’s comprehensive screening and 250 000 counsellings are the summary of activities. Some 200 000 people received the information pack. Significant is the familiar occurence of tumors and cardiovascular diseases, that means 20% of prevalence in test subjects. We are obese, smokers, physically inactive, our health behavior is poor. The improvement of the populational health care activity is among the strategical plans of health politics, and it is badly needed based on the results of MÁESZ Program.]

[The importance of recognition and proper treatment of hypertension and the maintenance of adherence in hypertension care]

NEMCSIK János, PÁLL Dénes, JÁRAI Zoltán

[Hypertension is the leading cause of death and disability-adjusted life years. In the United States hypertension accounts for more cardiovascular (CV) deaths than any other modifiable CV disease risk factor and was second only to cigarette smoking as a preventable cause of death for any reason. In our country the situation is similar. In Hungary the number of subjects with hypertension is approximately 3.5 million and this high prevalence contributes markedly to the poor Hungarian CV morbidity and mortality figures. The recognition of hypertension, the initiation of drug therapy and the long-term follow- up of the patients is mainly the task of primary care. Besides that it inheres high responsibility, this is also a grateful commitment, as hypertension in most of the cases can be treated properly with lifestyle-changes and medications leading to a marked decrease of CV complications, especially stroke. In our review article we would like to focus on the high prevalence of hypertension worldwide as well as in our country, the exact implementation of screening, the risk reduction potential of the proper treatment and the importance of the long-term maintenance of treatment adherence.]

[POSSIBILITES AND DIFFICULTIES OF COLORECTAL CANCER SCREENING IN HUNGARY]

ÚJSZÁSZY László, SIMON László, HORVÁTH Gábor, TAM Beatrix

[The frequency of colorectal cancer is increasing all over the world. It is the second most frequent oncological disease leading to death in both sexes in Hungary. The main part of colorectal cancer develope after the age of 50. In case of patients having higher risk we have to calculate with the earlier appearance of the tumour and detectable molecular genetic disorders. The development of colorectal cancer needs a long time. Before the appearance of the cancer, precancerous processes (adenomas, polyps) can be detected in the large intestine. The development of colorectal cancer can be prevented by the removal of the adenomas (polypectomy). There are many different and efficient methods to detect the precancerous and early disorders. For increasing the compliance to screening programs the common efforts of the society, the National Health Care Services and medical doctors are necessary. The education of the population and the medical services would also be helpful. The colorectal cancer screening programs are costeffective and supported by the different health services independently from the type of the insurance. Screening the patients having higher risk is one of most important task. In these cases the use of colonoscopy is the most frequent method for the screening and follow up as well.]

[Health Protective Screening Program of Hungary 2010-2020. Metabolic syndrome - Results in 2010-2012]

KÉKES Ede, BARNA István, DAIKI Tenno, DANKOVICS Gergely, KISS István

[1 597 163 health assessments were performed on 65267 persons as a part of screening program. 132 964 participants were participated in our lifestyle advice program. The number of questionnaire responses for health statue were 3 717 480 during three years. This publication presents the results of metabolic disorders explored by screening. The metabolic syndrome was characterized by visceral obesity, abnormal glucose level and elevated blood pressure. Reasonable suspicion of metabolic syndrome was occured in 33-38% of subjects. Where the positive criteria was present, there were higher values of investigated parameters (waist, glucose, cholesterol, systolic blood pressure, uric acide level) compared with those of negative criteria.]
