This study also demonstrated that the soft tissue thickness was higher in the affected arm and ultrasonographic findings were consistent with the other measurement methods (circumferences and limb volumes). Considering that ultrasound imaging is patient-friendly, non-invasive, and cost-effective, we recommend its more widespread use for evaluating treatment efficacy in BCRL. PMID: 30234245 [PubMed]

This study aims to investigate the correlations between the expression of human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (C-erB-2), CD34, and estrogen receptor (ER) in breast cancer (BC) patients, and the signs of conventional ultrasonography and ultrasound elastography. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Clinical data of 88 patients who were pathologically diagnosed as breast cancer were retrospectively analyzed. HI VISION Avius color ultrasound device was used to perform ultrasound and related ultrasound parameters were analyzed. Expressions of C-erB-2, CD34, and ER were detected by immunohistochemistry. RESULTS: There was a correl...

This study explored the value of measuring programmed death 1 (PD-1) in peripheral blood, combined with breast ultrasound using the Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS) classification, for differentiation between benign and malignant breast tumors. Materials and methods: We enrolled 113 patients with breast cancer and 66 patients with benign breast tumors who were admitted to Hangzhou First People's Hospital from September 2014 to August 2017. The mRNA level of PD-1 was detected by quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction. Results: The mRNA levels of PD-1 were significantly higher in the per...

Conclusions: Mammography is the best technique for screening and identifying patients with non-mass-like breast lesions and microcalcifications. Considering the false positive and false-negative results, ultrasound is not a perfect screening modality. Future studies are recommended to study the value of ultrasound in the detection of high-risk breast cancer patients. PMID: 30210716 [PubMed]

Breast cancer remains a leading cause of death for women throughout the world. Recent advances in medical imaging technologies and tumor targeting agents signify vast potential for progress toward improved management of this global problem. Phase-change contrast agents (PCCAs) are dynamic imaging agents with practical applications in both the research and clinical settings. PCCAs possess characteristics that allow for cellular uptake where they can be converted from liquid-phase PCCAs to gaseous microbubbles via ultrasound energy.

CONCLUSION: The dCNN allows for accurate classification of breast density based on the ACR BI-RADS system. The proposed technique may allow accurate, standardized, and observer independent breast density evaluation of mammographies. Advances in Knowledge: Standardized classification of mammographies by a dCNN could lead to a reduction of falsely classified breast densities, thereby allowing for a more accurate breast cancer risk assessment for the individual patient and a more reliable decision, whether additional ultrasound is recommended.

Authors: Bai XM, Yang W, Zhang ZY, Jiang AN, Wu W, Lee JC, Chen MH, Yan K Abstract OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the long-term efficacy and prognostic factors of ultrasound-guided percutaneous radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for breast cancer liver metastasis (BCLM). METHODS: Between 2000 and 2015, 69 patients who underwent ultrasound-guided percutaneous RFA for BCLM and had regular follow-up examinations were included. All patients had undergone resection of the primary breast cancer and had received chemotherapy, endocrine therapy or both after surgery. The sample included two males and 67 females with an average age ...
