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.

AbstractThe use of chemotherapy medicines for breast cancer (BC) has been associated with an increased risk of cardiotoxicity. In recent years, there have been growing interests regarding the application of cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging, a safe and noninvasive modality, with the potential to identify subtle morphological and functional changes in the myocardium. In this investigation, we aimed to review the performance of various CMR methods in diagnosing cardiotoxicity in BC, induced by chemotherapy or radiotherapy. For this purpose, we reviewed the literature available in PubMed, MEDLINE, Cochrane, Goog...

Background: Nowadays the residual tumor after neoadjuvant treatment (NACT) is evaluated by magnetic resonance (MR). Our study has the main objective of estimating MR imaging (MRI) accuracy in finding a complete response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy and estimating the correlation between the size of the residual tumour mass appreciated with MRI after NACT and the size of the residual disease evaluated by post-operative histological examination.

Background: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is used selectively in addition to digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT), ultrasound (US) and computed tomography (CT) in the preoperative assessment of breast cancer patients. The aim of this study was to evaluate the preoperative size assessment of invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC) on DBT, MRI, US, and CT compared with final histology, and evaluate the impact of MRI on the type of surgery and extent of treatment.

This study aimed to develop a model that fused multiple features (multi-feature fusion model) for predicting metachronous distant metastasis (DM) in breast cancer (BC) based on clinicopathological characteristics and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). A nomogram based on clinicopathological features (clinicopathological-feature model) and a nomogram based on the multi-feature fusion model were constructed based on BC patients with DM (n=67) and matched patients (n=134) without DM. DM was diagnosed on average (17.31±13.12) months after diagnosis. The clinicopathological-feature model included seven features: reproduct...

Conclusion In general, there is a trend toward higher sensitivity and lower specificity of PET/MRI when compared to PET/CT. Results on the diagnostic performance of DWI are conflicting. Rather than evaluating it separate, it seems to have complementary value when combined with other MR sequences.
