Magnetic nanoparticle-aided microwave imaging is recently gaining an increasing interest as a potential tool for breast cancer diagnostics. This is due to the peculiar features of magnetic nanoparticles, which are biocompatible, can be selectively targeted to the tumor, and may change their microwave magnetic response when modulated by a polarizing magnetic field. This latter aspect is particularly appealing, as it enables the physical separation of the microwave signal due the malignancy, targeted by the nanoparticles, from that due to healthy tissue. This increases the specificity of the diagnostic tool, in principle all...

Abstract Transfeminine individuals are treated with estradiol and anti-androgen agents to transition to a more feminine appearance. The physical changes that occur with estradiol therapy include breast development, body fat redistribution, and decreased muscle mass. Transfeminine treatment regimens require monitoring and dose adjustments to achieve appropriate physiologic targets to enhance feminization and decrease risk of adverse outcomes. Adverse effects associated with estradiol use include thromboembolic disease, macroprolactinoma, breast cancer, coronary artery disease, cerebrovascular disease, cholelithiasi...
