AbstractEarly automatic breast cancer detection from mammograms is based on the extraction of lesions, known asmicrocalcifications (MCs). This paper proposes a new and simple system formicrocalcification detection to assist in early breast cancer detection. This work uses the two most recognized public mammogram databases, MIAS and DDSM. We are introducing a MC detection method based on (1) Beucher gradient for detection ofregions of interest (ROIs), (2) an annulus model for extraction of few and effective features from candidates to MCs, and (3) one classification stage with two different classifiers,k Nearest Neighbor (K...

Authors: Turhan E, Yasli G Abstract OBJECTIVE: The present study was performed to detect cancer risk of the midwifes and nurses playing central role in raising awareness in the society using Gail's model. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Sample of the present cross sectional study consists of 750 volunteer midwifes and nurses in 2016. Breast cancer risk was calculated using the Gail Risk Assessment Tool. Perceived and calculated risk levels were compared. Descriptive statistics and Chi-Square analysis, t-test, Multivariate Linear Regression Analysis, the Logistic Regression Analysis were conducted. RESULTS: A mean of...

Although mammography (MG) has been widely used for breast cancer screening in the western world, over-diagnosis remains controversial. Milestone studies showed that ultrasound (US) was an effective primary screening test for breast cancer both in the western world and in China. US improves the sensitivity of screening in Chinese women who have denser breasts and develop breast cancer earlier than Caucasian counterparts, and is used as the primary imaging test in the hospital-based opportunistic screening among asymptomatic self-referred women.

The distinction between benign and malignant papilloma of the breast through percutaneous needle biopsy can be difficult because of limited samples; the underestimation rate can be up to 25%. The aim of this study is to identify clinical and histological factors associated with underestimation, invasive ductal carcinoma, or ductal in-situ carcinoma (DCIS) of the breast found in surgical specimens from papillary lesions. This may contribute toward selection of patients for a follow-up strategy without the need for surgical excision. From a database of 3563 patients, we identified 85 with intraductal papilloma between 2007 a...

AbstractBackgroundThe Verona population-based breast cancer (BC) screening program provides biennial mammography to women aged 50 –69 years. Based on emerging evidence of enhanced detection, the program transitioned to digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) screening.MethodsThis is a prospective pilot evaluation of DBT with synthesised 2D mammography screening implemented during April 2015 –March 2017; the rate and characteristics of cancers detected at DBT screening were compared with those detected at the preceding digital mammography (DM) screening round (April 2013–March 2015) in the same screening p...
