Assessing sizes of breast cancers that show non-mass enhancement on MRI based on inter-observer variability and comparison with pathology size.

CONCLUSION: The size assessments of NME breast cancer on MRI showed high correlation between observers and with pathology size. However, MRI measurements need a cautious approach because of their high overestimation rates. Measurements from early T1 images showed the highest concordance rate with pathology size.

Additional screening for women at high risk of breast cancer is commonplace in many countries, with evidence that magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) screening improves mortality.1 The age of commencement, methods, and frequency varies between countries. In this paper, the authors review high-risk screening within Ireland,2 where women are referred to hospital-based clinics for surveillance following assessment by a geneticist or by the hospital high-risk surveillance clinic. In contrast to the UK, clinical examination is recommended in addition to yearly breast MRI.

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...

CONCLUSION: Image fusion between US and supine MRI is feasible in breast cancer patients, although there is a considerable difference in tumor location measurements between prone and supine positions, especially with thicker breasts. PMID: 31806212 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

The objective of this review is to discuss current modalities and devices as well as highlight promising advancements intended to aid in diagnosing secondary lymp hedema in breast cancer patients.Recent FindingsImaging techniques such as computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can offer high resolution of the lymphatics but are expensive and time-consuming. Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) is an alternative that reveals organ function as opposed to organ structure. Other imaging methods, such as color duplex ultrasound (CDU), laser scanner 3D (LS3D), and dual-energy X-ray absorptiome...

ConclusionsTumor-nipple enhancement and tumor-nipple distance on MRI could predict NAC involvement in breast cancer. When enhancement was evaluated on both early and delayed phase images with a combined tumor-nipple distance of ≤1 cm, the prediction of NAC involvement showed the best performance.

A 70-year-old female patient with a history of locally advanced breast cancer presented with a 2-month duration of persistent gait imbalance. Ten years earlier, she initially received a diagnosis of an invasive ductal carcinoma of the right breast, triple negative, treated with mastectomy and axillary lymph node dissection, followed by adjuvant chemotherapy and postmastectomy radiation therapy. She had been followed up without evidence of disease until the present time. Magnetic resonance imaging of the brain demonstrated a lobulated enhancing mass measuring 3.6  × 2.4 × 3.6 cm involvin...
