OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this article is to describe the feasibility and safety of a multidisciplinary approach to imaging-guided axillary staging that facilitates personalized, less invasive surgical management of the axilla through targeted axillary dissection in patients with biopsy-proven nodal metastasis undergoing neoadjuvant chemotherapy. CONCLUSION: Axillary nodal status, critical in breast cancer staging, affects prognosis and treatment. As the paradigm shifts toward minimally invasive therapy, a clip marker is placed in the biopsied metastatic node for patients with N1-N2 disease undergoing neoadjuvant chemotherapy to facilitate targeted axillary dissection of the clipped node...

The radio guided occult lesion localization (ROLL) technique has been in use since the mid-90's, mainly in breast surgery. It is nowadays used for many oncological pathologies such as parathyroid lesions, melanoma, and colorectal tumors. We present the case of a patient with an 11 mm left meso rectal solitary recurrence of a primary ovarian cancer in whom the ROLL technique was used to identify the implant. The radio isotope was introduced with a 22g needle with Endoscopic ultrasound technique using an Echo lineal endoscope...

The heterogeneous intra-tumoral accumulation of liposomes is a critical determinant of their efficacy. Both the chaotic tumor microcirculation and elevated IFP are linked to the heterogeneous intra-tumoral distribution of nanotechnology-based drug delivery systems such as liposomes. In the present study, the relationship between tumor microcirculation, elevated IFP, and accumulation of nanoparticles was investigated through in vivo experimentation. This was accomplished by evaluation of the tumor microcirculation using dynamic contrast enhanced computed tomography (DCE-CT) and measurement of tumor IFP using a novel image-guided robotic needle placement system connected to the micro-CT scanner...

Axillary ultrasound is increasingly utilized for nodal staging preoperatively in patients presenting with invasive breast cancer to provide guidance for preoperative chemotherapy or proceeding directly to surgery. Improvements in ultrasound technology make it possible to assess the nodal burden in order to identify those patients not eligible for ACOSOG Z0011 management. However, its ability to detect metastasis is variable and dependent on operator's skills, size of metastatic deposit, and primary tumor histology subtype...

PURPOSE: The staging of female breast cancer requires detailed information about the level of cancer spread through the lymphatic system. Common practice to obtain this information for patients with early-stage cancer is sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy, where LNs are radioactively identified for surgical removal and subsequent histological analysis. Punch needle biopsy is a less invasive approach but suffers from the lack of combined anatomical and nuclear information. We present and evaluate a system that introduces live collaborative robotic 2D gamma imaging in addition to live 2D ultrasound to identify SLNs in the surrounding anatomy...

BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES: Biopsy of palpable breast masses can be performed manually by palpation guidance or under imaging guidance. Based on retrospective studies, image guided biopsy is considered more accurate than palpation guided breast biopsy; however, these techniques have not been compared prospectively. We conducted this prospective study to verify the superiority and determine the size of beneficial effect of image guided biopsy over palpation guided biopsy. METHODS: Over a period of 18 months, 36 patients each with palpable breast masses were randomized into palpation guided and image guided breast biopsy arms...

Following female sex and age, mammographic density is considered one of the strongest risk factors for breast cancer. Despite the association between mammographic density and breast cancer risk, little is known about the underlying histology and biological basis of breast density. To better understand the mechanisms behind mammographic density we assessed morphology, proliferation and hormone receptor status in relation to mammographic density in breast tissues from healthy women. Tissues were obtained from 2012-2013 by ultrasound-guided core needle biopsy from 160 women as part of the Karma (Karolinska mammography project for risk prediction for breast cancer) project...

Suspicious regional lymph nodes may be incidentally identified on breast ultrasound examinations in patients who present for sonographic evaluation without a known or a suspected breast malignancy, and there is a paucity of data on whether biopsy should be performed. This study aims to characterize incidental sonographically detected suspicious regional lymph nodes and determine whether tissue sampling or follow-up imaging is required. A total of 40,773 consecutive breast ultrasounds were reviewed. Overall, 7 women with nonpalpable, incidental, suspicious axillary or supraclavicular lymph nodes in an otherwise unremarkable breast and without history of malignancy or systemic disease were identified...

BACKGROUND: While sentinel lymph node dissection (SLND) provides axillary staging, recent trials question the necessity of removing positive nonsentinel axillary lymph nodes (LN) in breast cancer. We sought to determine the technical feasibility of percutaneous core needle biopsy (PNB) of axillary sentinel lymph nodes (SLNs). METHODS: After dual tracer injection, 25 patients underwent intraoperative axillary ultrasound and ultrasound guided per PNB of the axillary LN at the site of radiotracer uptake, followed by standard SLND...

Extranodal lymphoma represents fewer than 0.5% of all breast malignancies. Secondary involvement of the breast with lymphoma is more common than primary breast lymphoma. The most common primary breast lymphoma is B-cell lymphoma. The initial imaging study of choice for a woman with a new breast mass is a diagnostic mammogram. In younger women ultrasound is more commonly the first imaging modality performed. Diagnosis is made from image-guided or physical examination-directed needle biopsy. Treatment is different from that for breast cancer, in that surgery is not the mainstay...

INTRODUCTION: Axillary status remains an important prognostic indicator in breast cancer. Certain patients with a positive sentinel node (SLNB) may not benefit from axillary clearance (AC). Uncertainty remains if this approach could be applied to patients diagnosed with axillary metastases on ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration cytology (USFNAC). The aim of this study was to compare nodal burden in patients with positive USFNAC and a positive SLNB. METHODS: A retrospective study was performed involving all BC patients between 2007 and 2014 who had either pre-operative USFNAC or a SLNB...
