CONCLUSIONS: We demonstrated a statistically significant relationship between HIV status, the presence of multifocal breast cancer, and mammographically detected grouped and fine pleomorphic microcalcifications. A statistically significant relationship between HGDCIS and HIV status, and the presence of grouped and fine pleomorphic microcalcifications in HIV-positive patients with biopsies confirming HGDCIS, was demonstrated. Our study also showed that there is a relationship between age of presentation and HIV status. PMID: 32657681 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
rszalek The herpesvirus, polyomavirus, papillomavirus, and retrovirus families are associated with breast cancer. More effort is needed to assess the role of these viruses in the detection and diagnosis of breast cancer cases in women. The aim of this paper is to propose an efficient segmentation and classification system in the Mammography Image Analysis Society (MIAS) images of medical images. Segmentation became challenging for medical images because they are not illuminated in the correct way. The role of segmentation is essential in concern with detecting syndromes in human. This research work is on the segmentat...
AbstractThe Italian College of Breast Radiologists by the Italian Society of Medical Radiology (SIRM) provides recommendations for breast care provision and procedural prioritization during COVID-19 pandemic, being aware that medical decisions must be currently taken balancing patient ’s individual and community safety: (1) patients having a scheduled or to-be-scheduled appointment for in-depth diagnostic breast imaging or needle biopsy should confirm the appointment or obtain a new one; (2) patients who have suspicious symptoms of breast cancer (in particular: new onset palpab le nodule; skin or nipple retraction; o...
In this study authors aimed to investigate the barriers to participation of a sample of Jamaican women in mammography screening. The data were obtained from a previous survey that was conducted in Jamaica from June to August 2013 in the four parishes (Hanover, St. James, Trelawny, and Westmoreland) served by the Western Regional Health Authority (WRHA). WRHA served four hospitals, five non-randomized health centers, and five sites of community events. The sample consisted of women ranging in age between 35 and 83 years, with the mean age of 50.2 (SD = 10.6). The authors used a logistic regression to determin...
CONCLUSIONS: Financial and cultural issues were important hindrances to breast cancer screening in African American women. These findings highlight the importance of affordable health care for preventive health services as well as the relevance of culturally embedded issues to health, while the MQS accentuates the need for more rigorous research articles. Breast cancer screening interventions in this population should attend to barriers identified in this review. PMID: 32641257 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: One-year follow-up rather than 6-month follow-up may be suitable for BI-RADS 3 lesions on screening US found in screening centers. However, more caution is needed regarding similar findings in tertiary centers where 6-month follow-up may be more appropriate. PMID: 32643332 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
