Validity and reliability of self-reported health indicators among women attending organized mammographic screening.

CONCLUSIONS: Norwegian women attending the screening program are reasonably accurate in self-reporting their breast cancer and mammography histories. On average, women consistently reported weight and height within one kg/cm. PMID: 29366395 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

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.

AbstractPurposeTo evaluate the frequency of missed cancers on breast MRI in women participating in a high-risk screening program.MethodsPatient files from women who participated in an increased risk mammography and MRI screening program (2003 –2014) were coupled to the Dutch National Cancer Registry. For each cancer detected, we determined whether an MRI scan was available (0–24 months before cancer detection), which was reported to be negative. These negative MRI scans were in consensus re-evaluated by two dedicated breast radiolog ists, with knowledge of the cancer location. Cancers were scored as invisi...

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.

Conclusion ACC can be extensively infiltrative and present much larger than its radiological size, as reported in our case. Use of better imaging modalities judiciously, in these cases, are needed to more accurately predict the true pathological size of ACC to prevent inadequate surgery.
