ConclusionsMagnetic seeds are a feasible and safe method of breast lesion localization. They can be accurately placed, demonstrate no migration in this feasibility study and are detectable in all sizes and depths of breast tissue. Now that safety and feasibility have been demonstrated, further clinical studies are required to evaluate the seed ’s effectiveness in wide local excision surgery.

Abstract Ultrasound assisted the copper-catalyzed cross-coupling reaction to synthesis 1-(10-bromoanthracene-9-yl)-1H-imidazole-4,5-dicarboxylic acid (A-Im). The obtained product was employed to modify graphene oxide (GO) surface to produce GO-A-Im. The resulted hybrid was characterized with Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM/EDS); X-ray Diffraction spectroscopy (XRD); X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS); Fluorescence spectroscopy; Fourier transformed infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET), and UV-Vis absorption spectroscopy. The synthesized (A-Im) moiety that was used for functionalization ...

ConclusionMBI seems to be a useful imaging modality with a high predictive value in revealing ipsilateral and bilateral disease not visualized by mammography and ultrasound. It may play an important role in delineating the extent of the index lesion during preoperative planning. Incorporation of MBI in the clinical work-up as an adjunct modality to mammography and ultrasound may lead to better selection of patients who could benefit from BCS.

AbstractObjectivesTo determine the effect of computer-aided-detection (CAD) software for automated breast ultrasound (ABUS) on reading time (RT) and performance in screening for breast cancer.Material and methodsUnilateral ABUS examinations of 120 women with dense breasts were randomly selected from a multi-institutional archive of cases including 30 malignant (20/30 mammography-occult), 30 benign, and 60 normal cases with histopathological verification or ≥ 2 years of negative follow-up. Eight radiologists read once with (CAD-ABUS) and once without CAD (ABUS) with> 8 weeks between reading sessions. Readers provided ...

This study investigated the feasibility of using strain elastography (SE) and real time shear wave elastography (RT-SWE) to evaluate early tumor response to cytotoxic chemotherapy in a murine xenograft breast cancer tumor model. METHODS: MCF-7 breast cancer-bearing nude mice were treated with either cisplatin 2 mg/kg plus paclitaxel 10 mg/kg (treatment group) or sterile saline (control group) once daily for 5 days. The tumor elasticity was measured by SE or RT-SWE before and after therapy. Tumor cell density was assessed by hematoxylin and eosin staining, and the ratio of collagen fibers in the tumor was evaluated by ...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewTo describe the imaging evaluation of common benign and malignant breast lesions encountered in pregnant or lactating women.Recent FindingsThere is increasing prevalence of pregnancy-associated breast cancer as the age of  women during pregnancy increases. Women in the first 10 years following pregnancy demonstrate an elevated risk for breast cancer compared to the average population. MRI has been shown to be more sensitive for evaluating the extent of disease in lactating patients than mammography or ultrasound.SummaryThe hormonal effects of pregnancy and lactation on the breast lea...

ConclusionsThe study of radiomics in BC patients is a new and emerging translational research topic. Radiomics in BC is frequently done to potentially improve diagnosis and characterization, mostly using MRI. Substantial quality limitations were found; high-quality prospective and reproducible studies are needed to further potential application.

This study aimed to explore the clinical usefulness of ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration cytology (USG-FNAC) for the evaluation of axillary lymph nodes in patients with early stage breast cancer (BC) among the Chinese Han female population. Around 124 patients with early stage BC were included in this retrospective study. All patients underwent USG-FNAC (group A). Patients with proven metastasis also underwent axillary lymph node dissection (ALND) (group B). In addition, sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) was performed 2 to 5 hours prior to the surgery. The sensitivity, specificity, accuracy, and positive predict...
