Accurate detection of breast tumor calcifications is of great significance in assisting doctors ’ diagnosis to improve the accuracy of breast cancer early detection. In this article, a different scale of superpixels saliency detection algorithm is used to segment calcifications in breast tumor ultrasound images based on a simple linear iterative cluster. First, a multi-scale saliency segment ation algorithm was used to divide the tumor region of different sizes and weak calcification (Wca) was extracted according to uneven gray distribution and texture contrast between regions.
ConclusionPatients with pure ALH with radiographic concordance have a low risk of pathologic upgrading on excisional biopsy. Potential predictors of upgrade rate warrant further analysis in a larger dataset.

CONCLUSION: Our study found that Korean females aged 40-49 years with US-detected breast cancer showed better DFS than those with mammography-detected breast cancer. However, there were no statistically significant differences in OS. PMID: 32901456 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: The SWV ratio can improve the sensitivity without sacrificing diagnostic specificity in the process of breast cancer diagnostic, provide a better diagnostic performance, and avoid unnecessary biopsy or surgery. PMID: 32924988 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
In conclusion, modulated electro-hyperthermia exerted a protective heat shock response as a clear sign of tumor cell stress. Exhaustion of the HSR manifested in caspase-dependent apoptotic tumor cell death and tissue damage of triple-negative breast cancer after mEHT monotherapy. Inhibiting the HSR synergistically increased the effect of mEHT. This finding has great translational potential.
Over 300,000 women in the US are expected to be diagnosed with breast cancer this year, with an estimated 12,000 of those diagnosed expected to be under the age of 40. Early detection is pivotal to ensuring a high likelihood of survival, which is why...
CONCLUSIONS: This study in HTM demonstrated the high feasibility of tumour specific contrast media and standard HRU contrast agents to detect early liver metastases. PMID: 32924994 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
In this study, we characterize the 3DUS system performance, establish QA baselines, and develop and test a method to register 3DUS images to CT images for PBSI planning.
