OBJECTIVE: Using screening mammography, this study investigated the association between obesity and axillary lymph node (LN) size and morphology. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective review of 188 women who underwent screening mammography at an academic medical center. Length and width of the LN and hilum were measured in the largest, mammographically visible axillary node. The hilo-cortical ratio (HCR) was calculated as the hilar width divided by the cortical width...

BACKGROUND: Mammography is the most common screening method for diagnosis of breast cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this study, a computer-aided system for diagnosis of benignity and malignity of the masses was implemented in mammogram images. In the computer aided diagnosis system, we first reduce the noise in the mammograms using an effective noise removal technique. After the noise removal, the mass in the region of interest must be segmented and this segmentation is done using a deformable model...

Screening has been always considered as a double-edged sword. Cancer screening could save lives in some cases, however, in other cases, it might also turn people into overdiagnosis. Overdiagnosis is the diagnosis of cancer that will never cause symptoms or death during a patient's lifetime. Therefore, overdiagnosis might lead to unnecessary treatments and lifetime surveillance, and then increase economic burden and psychological burden. In this review, we focus on how to correctly evaluate the overdiagnosis rate, and how to avoid or reduce the harms caused by overdiagnosis in the future according to the reasons associated with overdiagnosis...

To evaluate the MR appearance of noncalcified ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), with comparison to calcified DCIS. A retrospective, IRB-approved review of all DCIS diagnosed via MR biopsy between 2007 and 2011 was performed. DCIS was categorized as noncalcified based on the absence of calcifications on mammography and specimen radiography. MR morphology (focus, mass, nonmass enhancement [NME]) and enhancement kinetics (initial and delayed) for noncalcified DCIS were recorded and compared based on nuclear grade (1-3), size (<1...

Mammography is the only method presently considered appropriate for mass screening of breast cancer. However, higher breast density was strongly associated with lower mammographic sensitivity. Breast density is also identified as independent and strongest risk factors for breast cancer. Studies have shown women with high breast density have four to six times increased risk of breast cancer as compare to women with fatty breast. It varies between different age group it generally decreases with increasing age in postmenopausal women and it can be different in different ethnic groups and people from different geographical areas...

BACKGROUND: Screening tests are generally not recommended in patients with advanced cancer and limited life expectancy. Nonetheless, screening mammography still occurs and may lead to follow-up testing. OBJECTIVE: We assessed the frequency of downstream breast imaging following screening mammography in patients with advanced colorectal or lung cancer. DESIGN: Population-based study. PARTICIPANTS: The study included continuously enrolled female fee-for-service Medicare beneficiaries ≥65 years of age with advanced colorectal (stage IV) or lung (stage IIIB-IV) cancer reported to a Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) registry between 2000 and 2011...

A BI-RADS category of 4 from a mammogram indicates suspicious breast lesions, which require core biopsies for diagnosis and have an approximately one third chance of being malignant. Human plasma contains many circulating microRNAs, and variations in their circulating levels have been associated with pathologies, including cancer. Here, we present a novel methodology to identify malignant breast lesions in women with BI-RADS 4 mammography. First, we used the miRNome array and qRT-PCR to define circulating microRNAs that were differentially represented in blood samples from women with breast tumor (BI-RADS 5 or 6) in comparison to controls (BI-RADS 1 or 2)...

INTRODUCTION: Vascular calcification (VC) in hemodialysis (HD) patients is a sign of severe cardiovascular disease and can predict cardiovascular outcomes. Fetuin-A and osteopontin (OPN) inhibit VC. Serum fetuin-A levels are lower in patients with end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) and in those who are on chronic HD therapy. However, there are limited data concerning OPN in patients who are on dialysis. The aim of our study was to determine VC in HD patients, the relationship between VC and 25-OH-vitamin D, fetuin-A, and OPN levels, and independent predictors of VC...

In mammography, breast compression is necessary and an important factor influencing image quality. The purpose of this study was to determine the influence of the menstrual cycle on compression-induced pain during mammography and to evaluate the association between the thickness and volume of the mammary gland and pain. We examined basal body temperature and categorized the menstrual cycle into five phases. We executed breast compression in the craniocaudal view using a customized compression plate, to which we introduced an opening...

An important limitation of conventional two-dimensional mammography is the overlap of dense breast tissue obscuring masses. Digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) has emerged as a mammographic technology that overcomes this limitation and is considered an overall better mammogram. DBT has been shown to detect significantly more breast cancer than conventional two-dimensional mammography, and to decrease the number of callbacks for diagnostic evaluation from screening mammography. Usually the callback evaluation is deemed to be overlap of tissue requiring no further management...

Synthetic mammography (SM) consists of two-dimensional images reconstructed from digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) data. Unlike standard full-field digital mammography (FFDM), SM does not require additional radiation exposure. SM is being introduced in breast imaging centers because early clinical data demonstrate that synthetic images are comparable to FFDM in cancer detection, positive predictive values, and recall rates. SM has completely replaced FFDM in some practices. Thus, an understanding of SM and its strengths and weaknesses compared with those of FFDM is essential...

Background A published retrospective data of our study group demonstrated that premenopausal women, patients with lobular invasive breast cancer or patients with high breast density [American College of Radiology (ACR) classification 3+4] significantly benefit from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) leading to additional detection of malignant foci of 20.2% in the index and 2.5% in the contralateral breast, which would otherwise not be detected by routine imaging. Critics of preoperative MRI focus on higher false-positive rates leading to unnecessary surgical procedures and mastectomies...

PURPOSE: Microcalcifications are a common finding in mammography and usually require invasive procedures to diagnose or exclude malignancy. As many microcalcifications are due to benign lesions, we wanted to assess whether breast MRI as an additional diagnostic tool may be used to distinguish benign from malignant in this setting. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Eligible for this retrospective, IRB-approved observational study were 858 consecutive patients (mean age 54±11years) undergoing stereotactically-guided biopsies of suspicious mammographic microcalcifications during three year at our institution...
