Supersonic shear waves quantitative elastography and kinetic magnetic resonance dynamic curve in discriminating BI-RADS 4 breast masses: A comparative study
Conclusion Quantitative measurements are more vulnerable in detecting and differentiating BI-RADS 4 lesions. Type of the dynamic MRI curve is more sensitive, specific and accurate than SWE.
ConclusionsUS may underestimate breast tumor size. Treatment decisions that take into account tumor size can be made equally reliably in patients with high or low breast density.
ConclusionsThe obtained results showed that the proposed method was quite efficient in histopathological image classification. Despite the relative simplicity of the approach, the obtained results were far superior to previously reported results.Graphical abstract
ConclusionsCancers were predominantly detected in women undergoing preoperative staging of new invasive lobular carcinoma in the contralateral breast, rather than the Medicare rebate ‐eligible high‐risk screening group.
Mucinous and medullary breast cancers (BCs) have different histological substrates that manifest as different imaging features on mammography, ultrasound, and MRI. The aim of the present review is to demonstrate the differences between these two rare BC subtypes and to describe the microscopic features, review the imaging methods for detection of both cancer subtypes, illustrate the imaging findings and present useful pearls and pitfalls. Out of a total of 30 patients with mucinous BC and nine with medullary BC, we have selected typical and also unusual imaging features that best represent these cancers.

as A Abstract Women presenting with advanced breast cancer tumors are common in Brazil. Little is known about factors contributing to the delay in seeking care. The aim of this study was to identify factors associated with longer time intervals between the onset of breast cancer symptoms and the first medical visit in the Federal District, Brazil. The analysis included 444 symptomatic women with incident breast cancer, interviewed between September, 2012 and September, 2014, during their admission for breast cancer treatment in nine public hospitals in the Federal District. Patients with metastatic disease at diag...
AbstractBreast cancer is the most common type of malignancy diagnosed in women. Through early detection and diagnosis, there is a great chance of recovery and thereby reduce the mortality rate. Many preliminary tests like non-invasive radiological diagnosis using ultrasound, mammography, and MRI are widely used for the diagnosis of breast cancer. However, histopathological analysis of breast biopsy specimen is inevitable and is considered to be the golden standard for the affirmation of cancer. With the advancements in the digital computing capabilities, memory capacity, and imaging modalities, the development of computer-...
