Breast surgery patients go to a myriad of appointments unseen by the PACU staff. Nuclear Medicine, Mammography, Ultrasound, Seed Placement, Clip Placement, Imaging, Biopsies and consultative appointments all occur prior to being booked for surgery. In a time where the patient experience matters most, focus needs to be given to the patient population undergoing the most amount of pre-surgical, stressful appointments.

Conclusions: Our model is more reliable and stable to assist doctors predict the SLN metastasis in breast cancer patients before operation. Introduction The incidence of breast cancer is the first in female malignant tumors, in which the highest incidence of breast cancer has been reported in Europe and the United States, however, in recent years, the incidence of breast cancer in China has annually increased (1, 2). Based on surgery as an important step in the treatment of breast cancer, in recent years, different individuals have never stopped exploration of a novel and optimum approach. Besides, NSABP-04, ASCOG-...

CONCLUSION: CESM is a recommend investigation in breast cancer to increase the accuracy of size measurement and the detection of multiple tumors. The addition of 3DUS can enhance the detection of intra-ductal extension. Advances in knowledge: Choice of conservative breast surgery versus mastectomy is still a debate. We used an advanced, contrast-based, application of the mammogram: contrast enhanced spectral mammogram and a non-invasive three-dimensional breast ultrasound in the assessment of the local extension of the breast cancer regarding size, perifocal stromal infiltration and multiplicity to guide the selection of p...

Conclusion ACC can be extensively infiltrative and present much larger than its radiological size, as reported in our case. Use of better imaging modalities judiciously, in these cases, are needed to more accurately predict the true pathological size of ACC to prevent inadequate surgery.

This article is concerned with estimating the risk of a breast cancer patient diagnosed in a hospital‐based mammography unit having a tumor that is visible on ultrasound but not on mammography. A total of 1,399 women with invasive breast cancer from a hospital‐based diagnostic mammography unit were included in this retrospective study. For inclusion, mammograms from the time of the primary diagnosis had to be available for computer‐assisted assessment of percentage mammographic density (PMD), as well as Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System (BIRADS) assessment of mammography. In addition, ultrasound findings were ...

ConclusionIn occult cT0N+M0 breast cancer, conservative treatment of the breast is an acceptable modality which results in similar distant recurrence and overall survival rates. Surgery and breast irradiation appear to reduce the risk of ipsilateral breast recurrence. This is the first prospective study that provides evidence in the current clinical setting to guide treatment for patients with occult breast cancer.Citation Format: de Maat M, Bretveld R, Steevens J, Vissers Y, Hulsewé K.

IntroductionBreast cancer (BC) is increasingly diagnosed in an early stage due to improved imaging techniques and mammography screening. Non- or minimally invasive treatments, such as radiofrequency ablation (RFA) and MR-guided high-intensity focused ultrasound (MR-HIFU) ablation are currently being developed as alternatives to breast surgery. Patients' preferences with regard to these new treatments have not been investigated. The aim of this study is to assess the preferences of BC patients and healthy women regarding these new techniques, compared to conventional locoregional treatments.Materials and methodsSix health s...
