Publication date: Available online 18 November 2019Source: Best Practice &Research Clinical Obstetrics &GynaecologyAuthor(s): Elaine F. Harkness, Susan M. Astley, D Gareth EvansAbstractThe incidence of breast cancer continues to increase worldwide. Population-based screening is available in many countries but may not be the most efficient use of resources, thus interest in risk-based/stratified screening has grown significantly in recent years. An important part of risk-based screening is the incorporation of mammographic density and single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) into risk prediction models to be combined ...

This study aims to investigate the outcomes of the arm peripherally inserted central catheter-PORT technique in breast cancer patients. METHODS: The peripherally inserted central catheter-PORT technique is an evolution of the standard arm-totally implantable vascular access device implant based on guided ultrasound venous access in the proximal third of the upper limb with subsequent placement of the reservoir at the middle third of the arm. A prospective study was conducted on 418 adult female breast cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. The primary study outcome was peripherally inserted central catheter-PORT fail...

The objective of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic performance of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in detecting the secondary breast cancer among women with a personal history of the lesion. Materials and Methods We retrospectively reviewed breast MRI examinations performed between 2007 and 2011. A total of 798 women with a history of breast cancer were included in the study. Cancer detection rate, positive predictive value (PPV), recall rate, sensitivity, and specificity were assed. Cancer detection rate was stratified by interval after surgery of the primary breast cancer. Also, we derived 1 comparison group f...
