Chung This retrospective cohort study examined the effects of care continuity on the utilization of follow-up services and outcome of breast cancer patients (stages I–III) in the post-treatment phase of care. Propensity score matching and generalized estimation equations were used in the analysis of data obtained from national longitudinal databases. The continuity of care index (COCI) was calculated separately for primary care physicians (PCP) and oncologists. Our results revealed that breast cancer survivors with a higher oncology COCI were more likely than those with a lower oncology COCI to use mammograp...

ConclusionsMRI is the best predictor of tumor size in breast cancer. Histologic type and tumor size are key parameters when estimating tumor size and should be taken into account when planning surgery. Patient age does not interfere with the interpretation of imaging tests.ResumenIntroducciónEl objetivo de este estudio fue evaluar qué prueba de imagen de las empleadas para medir el tamaño del cáncer de mama primario preoperatorio (mamografía, ecografía o resonancia magnética (RM)) se correlacionó mejor con el tamaño del tumor en la pieza quirúrgica posto...

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.

In this study, we have evaluated the accuracy of specimen mammogram (SM) with digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) for margin assessment by comparing it to the excised margins as measured in final histopathology. This is a prospective observational study of patients with radiologically suspicious impalpable breast lesions. The patients underwent ultrasound-guided hook wire placement followed by excision of the lesion, subjected to digital tomosynthesis mammogram, and margins were revised on table when indicated. These findings were correlated with final histopathological margin. Our study included 30 patients and out of the ...
