Breast and Tumour Volume Measurements in Breast Cancer Patients Using 3-D Automated Breast Volume Scanner Images

Conclusions3-D US showed a high association with gold standard WDM for the preoperative assessment of breast volume and the histopathological measurement of tumour volume. 3-D US is an patient-friendly preoperative available technique to calculate both breast volume and tumour volume. Volume measurements are promising in outcome prediction of intended breast-conserving treatment.

The objective of the present study was to evaluate aberrant expression of GSK-3β as a potential biomarker in human breast and head and neck cancers. Nuclear/cytosolic fractionation, immunoblotting and immunohistochemical staining was used to study the expression of GSK-3β in human breast and head and neck cancer. Aberrant nuclear accumulation of GSK-3β in five human breast cancer cell lines was demonstrated and in 89/128 (70%) human breast carcinomas, whereas no detectable expression of GSK-3β was found in benign breast tissue. Nuclear GSK-3β expression was associated with HER-2 positive tumors (P=...

Authors: Guo Y, Li M, Bai G, Li X, Sun Z, Yang J, Wang L, Sun J Abstract Filamin A (FlnA) is an actin cross-linking protein. Previous studies have demonstrated its role in tumor progression in a wide range of cancer types. It has been reported that FlnA interacts with the DNA damage response protein, breast cancer gene 1 (BRCA1), which is a tumor suppressor gene. However, to the best of our knowledge, there are no studies evaluating the association of these genes in human carcinomas. In the present study, the immunohistochemistry of a tissue microarray was used to investigate the clinical significance of FlnA and B...

Conclusion: MRI-linac based single dose APBI to the intact tumor is a promising and a dosimetrically feasible strategy in patients with low-risk breast cancer. Preliminary OAR dosimetry favored the prone radiotherapy position. PMID: 30406210 [PubMed]

ConclusionsWhole-tumor histogram-based imaging features derived from ADC, along with washin and washout maps, provide a non-invasive analytical approach for discriminating TN cancers from other subtypes.Key Points•Whole-tumor histogram-based features on MR multiparametric maps can help to assess biological characterization of breast cancer.• Histogram-based texture analysis may predict the molecular subtypes of breast cancer.• Combined DWI and DCE evaluation helps to identify triple-negative breast cancer.
