The efficacy of axillary lymph node dissection (ALND) following sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) has been questioned. The present study was performed to determine the sensitivity, specificity and accuracy of axillary ultrasound (US) and fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) in the diagnosis of axillary metastases in patients with early breast cancer. A total of 214 patients with stage I and II breast cancer between June 2015 and January 2017 were included. All of the patients received axillary US as a primary investigation for lymph node status...

Fibroadenomas (FA) are the most common benign tumor in the female breast. Most are managed conservatively provided there is clinical, radiologic, and pathologic concordance. However, surgical excision is typically recommended for cellular fibroepithelial lesions or those lesions with clinical, radiologic, or pathologic features concerning for phyllodes tumor (PT). Some studies have suggested surgical excision in all FA >30 mm to reduce core needle biopsy (CNB) sampling errors. The aim of our study was to evaluate, in the absence of any other concerning clinicopathologic features, whether surgical excision of FA was warranted based on size criteria alone...

PURPOSE: Permanent breast seed implantation (PBSI) is a promising radiotherapy technique for early-stage breast cancer, completed in a single visit by permanently implanting 103 Pd seeds using needles inserted through a template and guided by 2D ultrasound (US). However, operator dependence has been highlighted as a limitation of this procedure. Consequently, we propose and have developed an intraoperative guidance system using 3D US and an instrumented mechanical arm to provide intraoperative 3D imaging and needle template tracking...

PURPOSE: Sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) was introduced as a minimally invasive technique for nodal staging. Since associated morbidity is not negligible, it is highly relevant to pursue a more minimally invasive alternative. The purpose of this study was to prospectively evaluate the sensitivity of fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) with combined gamma probe and ultrasound (US) guidance in comparison with the gold standard histology of the sentinel node (SN) after SLNB for detecting metastasis...

Intraoperative localization of nonpalpable recurrent thyroid cancer has been reported using needle localization, intraoperative ultrasound (US), dye injection, and radio-guided surgery. We describe the alternative technique of radioactive seed localization (RSL) in 3 patients with residual or recurrent papillary thyroid cancer. This technique has been used for many years in the setting of nonpalpable breast cancer, where it has been shown to be safe and has been associated with greater surgeon satisfaction as well as improved patient tolerability, cosmesis, and outcomes compared to needle localization...

MR imaging is now routinely performed for breast cancer screening and staging. For suspicious MR imaging-detected lesions that are mammographically and sonographically occult, MR imaging-guided breast interventions, including biopsy, clip placement, and preoperative needle localization, have been developed to permit accurate tissue diagnosis and aid in surgical planning. These procedures are safe, accurate, and effective when performed according to key principles, including proper patient selection, use of appropriate technique, adequate preprocedure preparation and postprocedure patient care, and postprocedure imaging-pathology correlation...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the usefulness of the HydroMARK, a hydrogel-based breast biopsy site marker for ultrasound localization of breast lesions, we investigated the tendency for dislocation and sonographic detectability of the marker placed in patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The marker was placed in lesions that were expected to become obscured after biopsy for a suspicious breast lesion or after neoadjuvant chemotherapy for breast cancer. The patients consented to return for a repeat ultrasound ± mammography examination, and the degree of displacement of the marker was measured as the marker-to-residual lesion distance...

PURPOSE: Radial scar's stellate appearance may mimic carcinoma mammographically and histologically. Management of radial scar (RS) found on breast core needle biopsies (CNB) ranges from excision to clinical observation due to the variation in reported upgrades to malignancy at surgical excision. We examined the upgrade rate in patients with RS detected on CNB at our institution and reviewed the current literature. METHODS: A retrospective study was conducted of all cases with RS diagnosed on CNB between December 2006 and March 2017 at our institution...

BACKGROUND: Despite the recent changes in the treatment of the axilla in selected breast cancer patient, positive sentinel lymph node (SLN) in patients undergoing mastectomy still necessitates axillary lymph node dissection (ALND). In invasive lobular carcinoma (ILC), pre-operative detection of the lymph node metastasis may be demanding due to its unique morphology. The aim of this study was to examine the benefit of preoperative axillary ultrasound (AUS), ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration biopsy (US-FNAB), and intra-operative imprint cytology (IIC), in order to avoid two-stage axillary surgery in patients with ILC undergoing mastectomy...

Tumor cell displacement is occasionally observed in surgical specimens after core needle biopsy. We report a case involving a 58-year-old woman in whom a microlobulated mass was detected on mammography, after which she underwent an ultrasonography- guided core needle biopsy. Thirty-six days later, a new low-echoic lesion was detected on ultrasonography, located from the original mass to the subcutaneous insertion site of the needle biopsy. Fifty days after the biopsy, breast-conserving surgery was performed...
