as A Abstract Women presenting with advanced breast cancer tumors are common in Brazil. Little is known about factors contributing to the delay in seeking care. The aim of this study was to identify factors associated with longer time intervals between the onset of breast cancer symptoms and the first medical visit in the Federal District, Brazil. The analysis included 444 symptomatic women with incident breast cancer, interviewed between September, 2012 and September, 2014, during their admission for breast cancer treatment in nine public hospitals in the Federal District. Patients with metastatic disease at diag...

AbstractBreast cancer is the most common type of malignancy diagnosed in women. Through early detection and diagnosis, there is a great chance of recovery and thereby reduce the mortality rate. Many preliminary tests like non-invasive radiological diagnosis using ultrasound, mammography, and MRI are widely used for the diagnosis of breast cancer. However, histopathological analysis of breast biopsy specimen is inevitable and is considered to be the golden standard for the affirmation of cancer. With the advancements in the digital computing capabilities, memory capacity, and imaging modalities, the development of computer-...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewWe aim to review the appearance of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) across the spectrum of imaging modalities used in common clinical practice.Recent FindingsChanges in technology and clinical breast cancer screening patterns have impacted the imaging evaluation of DCIS. DCIS classically presents as asymptomatic calcifications in women undergoing screening mammography. The replacement of traditional 2D mammography with digital breast tomosynthesis has changed the typical appearance of screen-detected DCIS. Ultrasound is traditionally utilized to detect DCIS in women with clinical symptoms, but effor...

AbstractObjectivesTo identify the relationship between human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) status and cone-beam breast CT (CBBCT) characteristics in surgically resected breast cancer.MethodsPreoperative CBBCT of patients with BI-RADS 4 or 5 lesions identified on mammography or ultrasound and dense or very dense breast tissue were retrospectively evaluated in 181 surgically resected breast cancer (triple-negative excluded) between May 2012 and November 2014. A set of CBBCT descriptors was semiquantitatively assessed by consensus double reading. Reader reproducibility was analyzed. Multivariable logistic regressi...

This study aimed to explore system-related factors affecting the timely diagnosis of breast cancer in the Gaza Strip. Method and Materials: A mixed method, sequential explanatory design was employed. A quantitative study was conducted first, and it was cross-sectional in nature, followed by a qualitative study. An interviewed questionnaire and an abstraction sheet were used to collect necessary quantitative data among 122 females diagnosed with breast cancer. A purposive sample of five medical specialists were selected for in-depth interview. Descriptive and inferential analyses were used to find differences between va...

Mammograms can save lives, but CBS News has learned in some cases, insurance companies are refusing to cover them – even for breast cancer survivors. We heard from hundreds of women who told us they could not afford the follow-up tests their doctors had ordered, like additional mammograms, ultrasounds and MRIs. Anna Werner reports.

Astley, D.Gareth EvansAbstractThe incidence of breast cancer continues to increase worldwide. Population-based screening is available in many countries but may not be the most efficient use of resources, thus interest in risk-based/stratified screening has grown significantly in recent years. An important part of risk-based screening is the incorporation of mammographic density (MD) and single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) into risk prediction models to be comb...
