Invasive Breast Cancer Detection Up With Abbreviated Breast MRI

THURSDAY, March 12, 2020 -- Abbreviated magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is associated with a significantly higher rate of invasive breast cancer detection compared with digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) among women with dense breasts, according to...

Authors: Rella R, Bufi E, Belli P, Conti M, Scaldaferri A, Grippo C, Franceschini G, Terribile D, Giuliani M, Manfredi R Abstract PURPOSE: To analyse the influence of tumor volume/breast volume ratio (TV/BV ratio) measured on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and other factors on surgeons' choice between large volume displacement oncoplastic surgery (LVOS) versus mastectomy (M) in patients with large sized tumors. Secondly, we investigate the predictive value of TV/BV ratio and other possible predictors for cosmetic results. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 80 MRI examinations performed on 77 b...

Authors: Wu Y, Lu Y, Xu C, Lin B Abstract As a non-invasive method, positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) using 2-deoxy-2-fluoro-18-fluoro-D-glucose (18F-FDG) is applied as a useful modality in the diagnosis of breast cancer. By evaluating glucose metabolism, this method can also be used in staging, restaging and post-therapeutic response evaluation. To evaluate the reliability of the 18F-FDG PET/CT-based peri-tumoral halo uptake layer (PHL) method for assessing tumor size, a total of 79 female patients with breast cancer who underwent 18F-FDG PET/CT, breast ultrasound and magnetic resonance i...

Conclusions: An early MRI assessment after two NACT cycles, specifically of the tumour's axillary lymph nodes, has the potential to predict short-term BCSS in patients with locally advanced HER2-negative breast cancers. PMID: 32394761 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionThe final selected 246 features are reproducible and show little dependence on segmentation methods and data perturbation. The high stability and effectiveness of diagnosis across these factors illustrate that the preserved features can be used for prognostic analysis and help radiologists in the diagnosis of breast cancer.

Jacinta E. Browne The aim of this work was to develop multimodal anthropomorphic breast phantoms suitable for evaluating the imaging performance of a recently-introduced Microwave Imaging (MWI) technique in comparison to the established diagnostic imaging modalities of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Ultrasound (US), mammography and Computed Tomography (CT). MWI is an emerging technique with significant potential to supplement established imaging techniques to improve diagnostic confidence for breast cancer detection. To date, numerical simulations have been used to assess the different MWI scanning and image recon...

This article focuses on reviewing the background of microwave techniques for breast tumour detection. In particular, this study reviews the recent advancements in active microwave imaging, namely microwave tomography and radar-based techniques. The main objective of this paper is to provide researchers and physicians with an overview of the principles, techniques, and fundamental challenges associated with microwave imaging for breast cancer detection. Furthermore, this study aims to shed light on the fact that until today, there are very few commercially available and cost-effective microwave-based systems for breast canc...

Abstract Objective: To evaluate background parenchymal enhancement (BPE) and its characteristics, as well as its behavior before and after neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC), in both breasts of patients with unilateral breast cancer. Materials and Methods: This was a retrospective, cross-sectional observational study involving a consecutive sample of women with invasive breast cancer who underwent breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) between July 2007 and July 2017, as well as undergoing dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI before and after NAC. In both breasts, we evaluated the BPE in accordance with the Breast Imaging Reporting ...
