ConclusionA clearer understanding of the variable history of DCIS coupled with advances in genomic profiling of the disease holds the promise of reducing widespread over-treatment of this non-invasive cancer. Additionally, identification of higher risk of recurrence subsets may select patients for whom more aggressive treatment may be appropriate.

Our objective was to explore mammographic diagnostic efficacy in a country where breast cancer screening does not exist.Materials and MethodsTwo mammographic test sets were used: a typical screening (TS) and high-difficulty (HD) test set. Nonscreening (NS) radiologists (n = 11) read both test se...

Conclusion: Under AEC mode, FOM values for the 4.5 cm thick BARC polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) phantom were found to be 15.02, 15.88, and 19.82 at Mo/Mo, Mo/Rh, and W/Rh target/filter (T/F), respectively. Under OPDOSE mode, FOM values were found to 65.32, 11.80, and 1.14 for the BARC PMMA phantom thickness of 2, 4.5, and 8 cm, respectively. Under OPDOSE mode, the calculated MGD values for three Computerized Imaging Reference Systems slab phantoms having total thickness of 7 cm were observed to be 3.03, 2.32, and 1.75 mGy with glandular/adipose tissue compositions of 70/30, 50/50, and 30/70, respectively, whereas for the 2...

Publication date: Available online 5 December 2018Source: Journal of Theoretical BiologyAuthor(s): Ying Chen, John S. LowengrubAbstractIn this paper, we apply the diffuse domain framework developed in Chen and Lowengrub (Tumor growth in complex, evolving microenvironmental geometries: A diffuse domain approach, J. Theor. Biol. 361 (2014) 14-30) to study the effects of a deformable basement membrane (BM) on the growth of a tumor in a confined, ductal geometry, such as ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). We use a continuum model of tumor microcalcification and investigate the tumor extent beyond the microcalcification. In order...
