Hungarian Radiology - 2004;78(04)

[The purpose of this overview is to demonstrate the recent results of breast diagnostics and the place of the imaging and interventional methods. Review of the most recent articles (September 2002- December 2003) in the following subjects: breast screening, digital mammography, computer assisted diagnosis, breast ultrasound, breast MRI, scintimammography, positron emission tomography, guided biopsies, other interventions, new diagnostical methods, percutaneous tumour ablation. Experiences about breast diagnostic methods are accumulating year-to-year rapidly. Therefore the current examination algorithm is changing continuously. New diagnostic and therapeutic modalities are entering in the daily routine. These are the reasons why the up-to-date knowledge of the literature is mandatory.]

[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. ]

[Changes in systolic blood pressure in the Hungárián aduit population between 2010 and 2018 based on public health screening data]

KÉKES Ede, BARNA István, DAIKI Tenno, DANKOVICS Gergely

[Using our mobile public health screening system, we examined the changes in systolic blood pressure averages and systolic pressure distribution between 2010 and 2018 by analyzing the data of 72,857 women (mean age 42.3±13.9 years) and 61,563 mén (mean age 42.2±13.9 years) in three consecutive time periods. The SBP averages have been gradually and significantly decreased since 2010 in all age groups. The parametric and non-parametric characteristics of the systolic distribution curves alsó showed a favorable change during the indicated period. The observed changes may indicate that the primary and secondary prevention, as well as the treatment of hypertension and the physician-patient cooperation in Hungarywere successful in the indicated period.]

[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.]

[Screening for depression and suicidal risk in family and general medical practice]

RIHMER Zoltán, SZILI Ilona, KALABAY László, TORZSA Péter

[According to both international and national studies the point prevalence of diagnosed major depression requiring treatment is 6-10 percent in general practice. As un­treated depression is the most important risk factor for suicide, early detection and effective management of depression (especially depression which predisposes sui-cide) are critical in prevention. According to international and national studies the re-cognition of major depression in primary care significantly contributes to the decline of suicide mortality. In our article we present two short questionnaires used for re-cognising depression and acute suicide risk and we describe their use in family/ general practice. We aim to raise awareness of the need of a systematic, nationwide sui-cide prevention programme which is supported on government level as well. ]

[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.]
