Ultrasound aspiration of breast

Vera Ramos, João Fraga, Teresa Simões, Margarida Figueiredo Dias
We report a case of a 36-year-old woman that presented with a painful mass in the outer quadrants of the left breast that had grown rapidly. Physical examination revealed a well circumscribed elastic mass and breast ultrasound showed a cyst measuring 26 mm with vegetation growing on the inner wall. Microscopic evaluation, after fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC), suggested benign lesion. Tumorectomy was performed and the final diagnosis was a pure squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the breast. A simple mastectomy with sentinel node biopsy was performed...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the role of preoperative axillary staging with ultrasound (US) and fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC). Can we avoid intraoperative sentinel lymph node (SLN) examination, with an acceptable revision rate by preoperative staging? DESIGN: This study is based on the retrospective data of 336 patients that underwent US evaluation of the axilla as part of their staging. A FNAC biopsy was performed when abnormal lymph nodes were visualized. Patients with normal appearing nodes on US or a benign diagnostic biopsy had removal of the SLNs without intraoperative pathological examination...

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...

Definitive diagnosis of parotid gland masses is required optimal management planning and for prognosis. There is controversy over whether fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) or ultrasound guided core biopsy (USCB) should be the standard for obtaining a biopsy. The aim of this review is to assess the current evidence available to assess the benefits of each technique and also to assess the use of intra-operative frozen section (IOFS). Literature searches were performed using pubmed and google scholar. The literature has been reviewed and the evidence is presented...

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...

Background The outcome of axillary ultrasound (AUS) with fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) in the diagnostic work-up of primary breast cancer has an impact on therapy decisions. We hypothesize that the accuracy of AUS is modified by nodal metastatic burden and clinico-pathological characteristics. Material and methods The performance of AUS and AUS-guided FNAB for predicting nodal metastases was assessed in a prospective breast cancer cohort subjected for surgery during 2009-2012. Predictors of accuracy were included in multivariate analysis...

OBJECTIVES: Ultrasound (US)-guided fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) is able to identify patients with extensive node involvement before surgery. In this study, we aimed to establish the optimal US criterion to identify abnormal lymph nodes on US-guided FNAC for detection of patients with 3 or more metastatic axillary nodes. METHODS: A total of 445 axillae from 443 patients with histologically confirmed invasive breast cancer (cT1-2 cN0) were examined with US at Ruijin Hospital from August 2013 to August 2014...

Axillary ultrasound (US) with US-guided fine-needle aspiration (US-FNA) for suspicious lymph nodes is important for pre-operative staging and planning of surgical management. Invasive lobular carcinoma (ILC) metastases were previously thought to be difficult to detect, but with a limited amount of evidence. This study investigated the ability of US and US-FNA to detect ILC metastases by assessing 142 patients with ILC. The sensitivity of US in detection of metastasis was 52.3%, and US was able to exclude 96% of N2 and N3 axillary metastases...

Unlike breast and thyroid cancer, the use of ultrasound (US)-guided fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) for preoperative staging is limited in melanoma. New US morphology criteria have shown that US-FNAC can correctly identify 50% of all involved sentinel nodes (SN) in melanoma patients before surgical excision. The aim of this study was to examine a new criterion: the echo-free island (EFI). A total of 1000 consecutively staged melanoma patients (Breslow thickness>1 or<1 mm, but ulcerated, Clark IV/V or regressed) scheduled for SN staging underwent preoperative US...
