Conclusion: The combination of anticancer nanodrug and ultrasound thermal treatment could remarkably suppress cancer tumor growth with a minimum compromise of side effects. Significance: The strategy of using thermal Ab in locations that are not reached by nanodrug w- th mild HT shows a promising potential for the entire tumor treatment.

The field of Breast Imaging is constantly evolving and has seen rapid advances in technology over the last two decades. Controversies surrounding breast cancer screening have also been gaining ground, despite unequivocal benefits and a decline in mortality of nearly 30%. There is talk of a paradigm shift in thinking from “population –based” screening to “personalized risk based” screening.
This article reviews the efficacy, utility, and feasibility of ultrasound as a screening tool for the early detection of occult breast cancer.
To study the correlation of ultrasonographic signs of small breast cancer (maximum diameter ≤2.0 cm) with axillary lymph node metastasis, pre-operative ultrasonographic images of 153 small breast malignant neoplasms in 143 breast cancer patients were analyzed according to their pathologic features. Of the small breast tumors included, 47 showed axillary lymph node metastasis. Diagnosis of all patients was obtained with radical axillary surgery or a sentinel lymph node biopsy procedure. Ultrasonographic signs included irregular shape, microlobulated contour, spiculation, microcalcification, posterior echo attenuat...
Publication date: Available online 13 November 2017 Source:European Journal of Surgical Oncology Author(s): Petros Charalampoudis, Christos Markopoulos, Tibor Kovacs In primary breast cancer, sentinel lymph node biopsy has been established as the gold standard for regional axillary staging. A robust body of randomized data support its accuracy and safety in patients with early, clinically node negative disease. However, the role of SLNB remains debatable in various patient subgroups, and recent advances in histopathology, dedicated axillary ultrasound imaging and chemotherapy regimens, put its role under a new perspective...
CONCLUSION: US-guided localization of axillary lymph nodes using activated charcoal at restaging after NAC in clinically node-positive breast cancer patients is a useful technique to guide axillary surgery, with a high identification rate. PMID: 29134374 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: The identification and biopsy of SLN using CEUS is a reproducible technique. Advances in knowledge: In the era of axillary conservation, microbubble/ CEUS SLN core biopsy has the potential to succeed surgical staging of the axilla. PMID: 29125333 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionIn patients with breast cancer mediastinal metastases, ER, PR and HER2 expression can be assessed in samples obtained by EBUS‐TBNA whenever a sufficient tissue sample is collected.
