Although annual breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is recommended for women at high risk for breast cancer as an adjunct to screening mammography, breast MRI use remains low. We examined factors associated with breast MRI use in a cohort of women with a family history of breast cancer but no personal cancer history. Study participants came from the Sister Study cohort, a nationwide, prospective study of women with at least 1 sister who had been diagnosed with breast cancer but who themselves had not ever had breast cancer (n = 17 894)...

Male breast cancer is an uncommon disease that constitutes 1% of all breast cancers and encapsulated papillary carcinoma (EPC) is a rare subtype of malignant male diseases. Gynecomastia is the most common disease of the male breast. We report a 63-year-old male patient with EPC accompanied by gynecomastia that was diagnosed and treated at our breast center. Mammography showed an oval-shaped dense mass with circumscribed margins on the ground of nodular gynecomastia. On ultrasonographic exam, we saw a well-circumscribed complex mass with a solid component which was vascular on Doppler ultrasonography...

BACKGROUND: The Veterans Choice Program (VCP) was launched in 2014 to address the growing concerns about the timeliness and quality of Veterans Health Administration (VHA) care. Given that many sex-specific health services, such as mammography and maternity care, are not routinely provided in all VHA facilities, women Veterans may disproportionately rely on VCP care. Understanding the provision and coordination of VCP care is crucial in order to ensure that care is not fragmented across the 2 health care systems...

INTRODUCTION: Development of digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) provides a technology that generates three-dimensional data sets, thus reducing the pitfalls of overlapping breast tissue. Observational studies suggest that the combination of two-dimensional (2D) digital mammography and DBT increases diagnostic accuracy. However, because of duplicate exposure, this comes at the cost of an augmented radiation dose. This undesired adverse impact can be avoided by using synthesised 2D images reconstructed from the DBT data (s2D)...

Sarina Schrager, Elizabeth Burnside
The latest recommendations on breast cancer screening in women from 40 to 49 years charge primary care providers (PCPs) with completing shared decision-making with women about screening mammography. However, there is a lack of supportive materials accompanying this directive. No easy-to-use risk assessment tool is available for PCPs to stratify women's risk. Neither is an evidence-based patient-centered way to assess values surrounding mammography available. To provide the highest quality care for women of 40-49 years, further research should clarify ways to apply risk assessment and values clarification to individual women...

Breast Cancer (BC) remains a major cause of mortality, and early detection is considered important for reducing BC-associated deaths. Early detection of BC is challenging in young women, due to the limitations of mammography on the dense breast tissue of young women. We recently reported results of a pilot proteomics study, using one-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (1D-PAGE) and mass spectrometry (MS) to investigate differences in milk proteins from women with and without BC. Here, we applied two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (2D-PAGE) and MS to compare the protein pattern in milk from the breasts of a single woman who was diagnosed with BC in one breast 24 months after donating her milk...

Contrast-enhanced digital mammography (CEDM) is a promising imaging modality in breast cancer diagnosis. This study aims to investigate how to optimally develop a computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) scheme of CEDM images to classify breast masses. A CEDM dataset of 111 patients was assembled, which includes 33 benign and 78 malignant cases. Each CEDM includes two types of images namely, low energy (LE) and dual-energy subtracted (DES) images. A CAD scheme was applied to segment mass regions depicting on LE and DES images separately...
