This study sought to test a methodology for estimating over-screening due to excessive periodicity, defined as a smaller than recommended interval between exams, and its association with socio-demographic characteristics. A cohort of women who underwent mammography in 2010, and whose result was normal, was assembled through probabilistic linkage SISMAMA records based on a set of personal identifiers. We used data from women living in the micro health region of Juiz de Fora/Lima Duarte/Bom Jardim, Minas Gerais State, Brazil, who were followed in the System until the end of 2012. The rate of over-screening was 150/1,000 wome...

AbstractBackgroundBariatric surgery is associated with a reduced risk of developing certain malignancies, particularly in women. However, the impact of bariatric surgery on tumor characteristics, cancer treatment, and oncologic outcomes is unknown.MethodIn a retrospective cohort study, 42 subjects diagnosed with breast cancer after bariatric surgery (1989 –2014) were matched to 84 subjects with breast cancer (1984–2012) who did not undergo bariatric surgery, based on age, body mass index (BMI), and menopausal status at the time of breast cancer diagnosis, as well as the date of cancer diagnosis. Medical records...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewTo review research on deep learning models and their potential application within breast screening.Recent FindingsThe greatest issue in breast screening is a workforce crisis across the UK, much of Europe and even Japan. Traditional computer-aided detection (CAD) for mammography decision-support could not reach the level of an independent reader. Deep learning (DL) outperforms CAD and is close to surpassing human performance. DL is already capable of decision support and density assessment for 2D full-field digital mammography (FFDM), and is on the cusp of providing consistent, accurate and interpr...

This study aimed to investigate whether quantitative radiomic features extracted from digital mammogram images are associated with molecular subtypes of breast cancer.Materials and MethodsIn this institutional review board–approved retrospective study, we collected 331 Chinese women who were diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in 2015. This cohort included 29 triple-negative, 45 human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-enriched, 36 luminal A, and 221 luminal B lesions. A set of 39 quantitative radiomic features, including morphologic, grayscale statistic, and texture features, were extracted from the segment...

Authors: Lindegren A, Schultz I, Wickman M Abstract BACKGROUND: Autologous fat transplantation (AFT) is being increasingly used to improve the results after breast-conserving surgery and breast reconstruction. However, studies on patient-reported outcomes (PROs) and health-related quality of life (HRQoL) after AFT are scarce. The aim of this prospective longitudinal case-series study was to assess PRO in women who had undergone AFT after surgery for breast cancer or risk-reducing mastectomy. METHODS: Fifty women, who had undergone breast-conserving surgery or breast reconstruction, needing corrective surgery, w...
