In the United States (U.S.), Hispanics experience breast cancer disparities. Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death among Hispanic women, and Hispanic women receive mammography screening at lower rates than some other ethnic groups. This low rate of screening mammography is associated with increased risk for possible late-stage diagnosis and lower survival rates. Educational interventions could play a role in increasing screening mammography rates among Hispanic women. This systematic review synthesized the current literature on educational interventions to increase mammography screening among Hispanic women...

Prior research suggests that several endogenous hormones in premenopausal women are associated with breast cancer risk; however, few studies have evaluated associations of endogenous hormones with mammographic density (MD) in premenopausal women. We conducted a cross-sectional study of plasma hormone levels in relation to MD among 634 cancer-free premenopausal women in the Nurses' Health Study II. We measured percent MD from screening mammograms using a computer-assisted method. We assayed estradiol, estrone, and estrone sulfate in blood samples timed in early follicular and mid-luteal phases of the menstrual cycle as well as testosterone, androstenedione, progesterone, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), DHEA sulfate, sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG), and anti-Müllerian hormone in luteal or untimed samples...

Describing complex mammography examination processes is important for improving the quality of mammograms. It is often difficult for experienced radiologic technologists to explain the process because their techniques depend on their experience and intuition. In our previous study, we analyzed the process using a new bottom-up hierarchical task analysis and identified key components of the process. Leveraging the results of the previous study, the purpose of this study was to construct a mammographic examination process ontology to formally describe the relationships between the process and image evaluation criteria to improve the quality of mammograms...

Metaplastic squamous cell breast cancer is an extremely rare subtype, accounting for less than 1% of all invasive breast cancers. As a result, there is sparse data in literature relating to its presentation and management. We report the first known case of metaplastic squamous cell breast cancer which was detected on screening mammogram and followed up as the patient delayed her treatment. This case highlights the aggressive natural behaviour of this subtype and importance of early treatment. The surgical management of this rare entity was reviewed...

Andres Su, Laurie Margolies
A 61 year-old woman presenting for bilateral screening mammogram was found to have an oval fat-density mass in the posterior right breast, partially visualized, with anterior displacement and thinning of the pectoralis major muscle. This mass was found on CT and MRI correlation to represent a large fat-containing mass, likely a lipoma, deep to the pectoralis major. On subsequent screening mammograms, the visualized portion of the mass remained stable. Subpectoral lipomas and intramuscular lipomas within the pectoralis major are rare, and their appearance on mammography may not be familiar to most radiologists...

We aimed to better quantify the impact of a postexcision preirradiation mammogram (PPM), first by identifying factors associated with abnormal results and then incorporating these findings into a nomogram. Beginning February 2011, our institution made a practice change to obtain a PPM on all patients with any calcifications identified. A total of 530 patients underwent a PPM. Suspicious abnormalities were reported in 61 patients (11.5%), with the PPM leading to a change in management in 47 instances (8.9%)...

Objective: Ageing population and noticeable changes in lifestyle in developing countries like Iran caused an increase in cancer incidence. This requires organized cancer prevention and screening programs in population level, but most importantly community should be aware of these programs and willing to use them. This study explored existing evidence on public awareness and practice, as well as, adherence to cancer screening in Iranian population. Methods: Major English databases including Web of Science, PubMed, Scopus, and domestic Persian databases i...

REVIEW
S J Vinnicombe
The term "breast density" or mammographic density (MD) denotes those components of breast parenchyma visualised at mammography that are denser than adipose tissue. MD is composed of a mixture of epithelial and stromal components, notably collagen, in variable proportions. MD is most commonly assessed in clinical practice with the time-honoured method of visual estimation of area-based percent density (PMD) on a mammogram, with categorisation into quartiles. The computerised semi-automated thresholding method, Cumulus, also yielding area-based percent density, is widely used for research purposes; however, the advent of fully automated volumetric methods developed as a consequence of the widespread use of digital mammography (DM) and yielding both absolute and percent dense volumes, has resulted in an explosion of interest in MD recently...

BACKGROUND Radiation-associated breast angiosarcoma is a rare clinical entity that is thought to be increasing in incidence. CASE REPORT Here we present the case of a 67-year-old female with a history of left breast invasive ductal carcinoma who received breast conserving surgery and radiation therapy eight years ago. She then presented with a painless mild skin discoloration of the left breast that had been present for over one year. Mammograms and ultrasounds were normal. A punch biopsy and a subsequent excisional biopsy revealed the diagnosis of angiosarcoma...
