ConclusionAPBI with SBRT and ExacTrac Adaptive Gating System was feasible. The acute and late toxicities were almost null and cosmesis was excellent. We also found that the margins of 5 mm applied from CTV to PTV were sufficient to compensate for geometric uncertainties.

Call for a Move or Boycott of Big Texas Cancer Meeting Oncologists are calling for this year's San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium to be moved out of Texas in response to the state's new abortion law, and a boycott of in-person attendance if no move happens. www.medscape.com The funny thing is that they are not proposing a true boycott, just planning to attend on-line rather than in-person.

AbstractObjectivesTo prospectively evaluate the diagnostic performance of screening ABUS as the primary screening test for breast cancer among Korean women aged 40 –49 years.MethodsThis prospective, multicenter study included asymptomatic Korean women aged 40 –49 years from three academic centers between February 2017 and October 2019. Each participant underwent ABUS without mammography, and the ABUS images were interpreted at each hospital with double-reading by two breast radiologists. Biopsy and at least 1 year of follow-up was considered the refere nce standard. Diagnostic performance of ABUS screening and ...
We present an ER-negative case of metastatic ILC presenting as linitis plastica of the colon where [18F]FES PET/MRI allowed the evaluation of the ER phenotypic transformation in the colonic metastasis from the ER-positive breast ILCin vivo.
