THE PROSPECTOR WON ELEVEN AWARDS, THE ONLINE STUDENT NEWSPAPER THE PROSPECTOR DAILY RECEIVED FIVE AWARDS, AND MINERO MAGAZINE WON SEVEN AWARDS. ### UTEP RESEARCHERS ARE DEVELOPING A COMPUTER-AIDED DETECTION SYSTEM THAT WOULD PREDICT IF AND WHEN BREAST CANCER WILL OCCUR. ACCORDING TO ELECTRICAL ENGINEER DOCTOR WEI QIAN, WHO RUNS UTEP’S MEDICAL IMAGING INFORMATICS LAB, THE RESEARCH IS EXPECTED TO SAVE SOME WOMEN FROM GETTING UNNECESSARY ANNUAL MAMMOGRAMS. IN A PAPER PUBLISHED IN THE JOURNAL “COMPUTERIZED MEDICAL IMAGING AND GRAPHICS,” THE TEAM’S SYSTEM HAD AN ACCURACY OF 70 PERCENT WHEN IT CAME TO PREDICTING WHICH WOMEN WOULD DEVELOP BREAST CANCER BY THEIR NEXT MAMMOGRAM AND WHICH WOMEN WOULD NOT. THE TECHNOLOGY WOULD CALCULATE OVERALL BREAST DENSITY AND HIGHLIGHT ANY SUSPICIOUS AREAS THAT ARE EXTREMELY DENSE. IT WOULD ALSO ALERT THE DOCTOR ABOUT ANY DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE TWO BREASTS. ### DON’T FORGET TO CHECK OUT FloraFEST THIS WEEKEND! THE REGION’S LARGEST NATIVE PLANT SALE OPENS AT 9 A.M.
