Conclusion: The texture analysis for breast DCE-MRI proposed in this study demonstrated potential utility in HER2 2+ status discrimination. Background Human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) is an orphan tyrosine kinase receptor. It is reported that HER2 is overexpressed in 15–20% of breast cancers. Overexpression of HER2 in breast cancer correlates with shortened disease-free survival. Compared with HER2-negative patients, patients with HER2-positive breast cancers have a poor prognosis, a high probability of lymph node metastasis and a high risk of recurrence (1–3). However, previous studies h...

AbstractIn the case of female breast cancer, a breast-conserving excision is often desirable. This surgery is based on preoperatively gathered MRI, mammography, and sonography images. These images are recorded in multiple patient positions, e. g., 2D mammography images in standing position with a compressed breast and 3D MRI images in prone position. In contrast, the surgery happens in supine or beach chair position. Due to these different perspectives and the flexible, thus challenging, breast tissue, the excision puts high demands on the physician. Therefore, this publication presents a novel eight-step excision support ...

Discussion: Our results demonstrated that cancer risk was not increased in our MS population; but age and sex different distribution may partly drive cancer risk. Higher cancer risk in MS patients switching more than two DMTs should take into account in treatment decision making. Introduction Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a severe acquired autoimmune neurodegenerative disease of the central nervous system (CNS) with extremely variable disease course, that usually affects persons in their third/four decades of life, even if late onset is described (1). Women had a prevalence/incidence rate approximately double than men (...

ConclusionConflicting evidences and lacking data about the benefits in terms of overall survival, disease-free survival and the long-term outcomes related to prophylactic bilateral mastectomy for CDH1 mutation carriers restrict the instruction for this type of procedure to selected cases, which should always be managed by a multidisciplinary team.

Rayfield Byrd knows when it’s time to wake up every morning. The 68-year-old Oakland, Cal., resident hears a voice from the living room offering a cheery good morning. Except Byrd lives alone. A little after 8 a.m. each day, a small yellow robot named Mabu asks Byrd how he’s doing. Byrd has Type 2 diabetes and congestive heart failure, and about three years ago, he had surgery to implant a microvalve in his heart to keep his blood flowing properly. To stay healthy, he takes four medications a day and needs to exercise regularly. To make sure his heart is still pumping effectively, his doctor needs to stay on to...

Conclusion 18F-FDG PET/CT does not appear to be useful in cancer screening for AIM patients compared with conventional screening and carries potential harms associated with follow-up investigations. The risk of cancer in AIM differs by myositis-specific antibodies-defined subsets and cancer screening is likely to be indicated only in high-risk patients, particularly DM. These results, replicated in larger, multicentered studies, may carry significant consequences for optimal management of AIM and health resource utilization.

This study examines the association between serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) and mammographic density, overall and by specific women characteristics. DDM-Madrid is a cross-sectional study that recruited 1403 premenopausal women in a breast radiodiagnosis unit of Madrid City Council. Information was collected with a questionnaire and plasma 25(OH)D was measured by solid-phase extraction on-line coupled to liquid chromatography–tandem mass spectrometry. Percent mammographic density was assessed using a semi-automated computer tool (DM-Scan). Multivariable linear regression models were used to quantify the associatio...

Publication date: Available online 22 February 2019Source: Surgery (Oxford)Author(s): Simon Lowes, Alice Leaver, Alan RedmanAbstractImaging plays a critical role in the diagnosis and management of breast cancer. Two-view mammography and ultrasound form the mainstay of breast imaging and are essential components of the triple assessment. Digital mammography is rapidly replacing analogue mammography, and recent advances such as digital tomosynthesis add a third dimension to conventional 2D mammographic images. The versatility of ultrasound allows assessment of the breast and axilla as well as accurately targeted intervention...
