This study investigated expression of proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA), proliferation-associated nuclear antigen (Ki-67) and cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) in tissues of breast invasive ductal carcinoma, and analyzed the correlations between these indexes and X-ray features in mammography. A total of 90 patients who were admitted to Huangshi Central Hospital and diagnosed as breast invasive ductal carcinoma from January 2014 to January 2016 were selected. The expression of PCNA, Ki-67 and COX-2 in cancer tissues and cancer-adjacent normal tissues of patients were detected by immunohistochemical staining, and X-ray features in mammography of patients were observed...

OBJECTIVE: Present article will perform a review regarding the current recommendations of Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in routine follow-up after successfully treated breast cancer by surgery, radiation and/or systemic therapy. METHODS: For this review, a literature review search was done with the MeSH-terms: Magnetic Resonance Imaging, breast neoplasm, post-operative period and follow-up, according to PRISMA. The literature published between 2006 and 2016 in MedBase, PubMed and Embase was consulted...

An efficient health care requires both informed doctors and patients. Our current healthcare system falls short on both counts. Most doctors and patients do not understand the available medical evidence. To illustrate the extent of the problem in the setting of cancer screening: In a representative sample of some 5000 women in nine European countries, 92% overestimated the reduction of breast cancer mortality by mammography by a factor of 10-200, or did not know. For a similar sample of about 5000 men with respect to PSA screening, this number was 89%...

In breast cancer screening or diagnosis, it is usual to combine different images in order to locate a lesion as accurately as possible. These images are generated by using a single or several imaging techniques. As X-ray based mammography is used widespread, a breast lesion is located in the same plane of the image (mammogram), but tracking of a breast lesion across mammograms corresponding to different views is a daring task for medical physicians. According to this, simulation tools and methodologies that use patient-specific numerical models can facilitate the task of fusing information from different images...

We describe an automated methodology for the analysis of unregistered cranio-caudal (CC) and medio-lateral oblique (MLO) mammography views in order to estimate the patient's risk of developing breast cancer. The main innovation behind this methodology lies in the use of deep learning models for the problem of jointly classifying unregistered mammogram views and respective segmentation maps of breast lesions (i.e., masses and micro-calcifications). This is a holistic methodology that can classify a whole mammographic exam, containing the CC and MLO views and the segmentation maps, as opposed to the classification of individual lesions, which is the dominant approach in the field...

BACKGROUND: The Breast Lesion Excision System(®) (BLES(®)) is a stereotactic vacuum-assisted breast biopsy device that utilizes radiofrequency in order to excise non-palpable mammographic lesions for pathologic diagnosis. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of BLES(®) in performing complete, margin-free excisions of small solid carcinomas. METHODS: Our retrospective study of prospectively enrolled patients included 50 cases of non-palpable, BIRADS ≥ 4, solid by means of mammography and sonography, lesions...

INTRODUCTION: Breast involvement in Non Hodgkin Lymphoma is a rare entity as it accounts for 2.2% of all extranodal lymphomas. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 59-year-old woman was referred to our Breast Unit because of two nodules of the right breast newly discovered during her annual mammography. Moreover, during the physical examination, a red-brown itchy lump of the scalp was discovered. The punch biopsies of the scalp lesion and ultrasound-guided core biopsies of both nodules of the right breast, revealed the presence of diffuse large B-cell Non Hodgkin Lymphoma in all tissue specimen sites...

In 2001 the ACPSEM published a position paper on quality assurance in screen film mammography which was subsequently adopted as a basis for the quality assurance programs of both the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists (RANZCR) and of BreastScreen Australia. Since then the clinical implementation of digital mammography has been realised and it has become evident that existing screen-film protocols were not appropriate to assure the required image quality needed for reliable diagnosis or to address the new dose implications resulting from digital technology...

Mammography is a proven tool for detecting breast cancer and reducing breast cancer mortality, but breast sonography plays an important role in promoting breast health, too. These modalities can complement each other, especially when images are correlated to examine an abnormality or suspicious area. This article discusses how breast sonography supplements mammography as a screening and diagnostic technique, how mammographic and sonographic images are correlated, and how some common breast diseases and conditions appear on the 2 modalities...

This article proposes a women's health prevention indicator (WHPI) reflecting the combined status of mammography and Papanicolaou (Pap) smear according to the recommendations for age and considering the time elapsed since the last exam/test. The WHPI classifies prevention status into desirable, alert, or risk categories. The risk category includes women of all ages who never had a Pap smear, those aged >60 years who had a Pap smear more than 3 years ago but never had a mammography, and those aged ≥71 years who are up to date with the Pap smear but never had a mammography...

PURPOSE: In a pilot study, we introduce fast handheld Multi-Spectral Optoacoustic Tomography (MSOT) of the breast at 28 wavelengths, aiming to identify high-resolution optoacoustic (photoacoustic) patterns of breast cancer and non-cancerous breast tissue. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: We imaged 10 female patients aged 48-81 years with malignant non-specific breast cancer or invasive lobular carcinoma. Three healthy volunteers aged 31-36 years were also imaged. Fast-MSOT was based on unique single-frame-per-pulse (SFPP) image acquisition employed to improve the accuracy of spectral differentiation over using a small number of wavelengths...

BACKGROUND: The decision to participate or not in breast cancer screening is complex due to the trade-off between the expected benefit of breast cancer mortality reduction and the major harm of overdiagnosis. It seems ethically necessary to inform women so that they can actively participate in decision-making and make an informed choice based on their values and preferences. The objective of this study is to assess the effects of receiving information about the benefits and harms of screening on decision-making, in women approaching the age of invitation to mammography screening...

In the United States, legislative actions in over 28 states require radiologists to notify women who undergo breast screening mammography of their breast density. This has led to increased public interest in supplemental screening, but radiologists have not come to a consensus on a supplemental screening modality. In choosing between the most common options, whole-breast ultrasonography (US) and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, one must weigh the benefits and drawbacks of each modality, as increased cancer detection may be accompanied by increased examination costs and biopsy rates...

Intraparenchymal leiomyoma of the breast are among benign non-epithelial tumors with the lowest incidence. Although it displays a benign histology, it may be confused with malignant lesions and create diagnostic confusion. In this paper, we report a 44-year-old woman with a painless mass with a diameter of 1.5 cm in the upper medial quadrant of her right breast. The lesion was removed surgically. The lesion's histologic examination and immunohistochemical analysis revealed a smooth muscle tumor of the breast...
