Background In breast cancer treatment, immediate completion of axillary lymph node dissection (ALND) can be performed if the intraoperative sentinel lymph node (SLN) examination is positive. This study evaluates the accuracy of intraoperative imprint cytology (IC) for detecting SLN metastases.
Background Our objective was to determine if intraoperative injection of technetium-99m–labeled sulfur colloid is as effective as preoperative injection in the detection of sentinel lymph nodes (SLNs).
Background Paget’s disease of the breast is an uncommon cancer. “Breast cancer” management has evolved to include sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB). Our objective is to determine utilization of SLNB in the surgical algorithm of Paget’s disease.
Background Imaging patterns of benign proliferative processes often complicate the assessment of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). We investigated the pathologic and biologic characteristics of false positive enhancement by breast MRI.
Background Axillary lymph node status is still considered the most significant prognostic factor for breast cancer outcome, and treatment decisions are based on the presence or absence of nodal disease. Intramammary lymph nodes (IMLNs) can be a site of regional spread. Is this a marker for more...
Background The purpose of this study was to investigate the strongest predictors of breast cancer in a high-risk population and to increase our understanding of the possible interactions between risk factors.
Three-dimensional (3D) imaging technology currently is used by various commercial industries as a method for analyzing objects and shapes. Recent work from our group and others offer data to support the use of 3D imaging as a valuable tool in aesthetic and reconstructive breast surgery. We have...
Background The purpose of the current study was to compare the prevalence of invasive or in situ cancer at excisional biopsy in patients with image-guided core needle biopsy (CNB)-proven atypical ductal hyperplasia (ADH), atypical lobular hyperplasia (ALH), or lobular carcinoma-in-situ (LCIS)....
Background This report presents the preliminary results and evaluation of the MammoSite balloon catheter (MammoSite Radiation Therapy System; Cytyc Corporation, Marlboro, MA) as the sole method of delivering partial breast irradiation to the lumpectomy bed with breast-conserving surgery in...
Background Although much data support the National Quality Forum recommendation that breast cancers should be diagnosed by needle biopsy before surgical resection, the exclusion criteria for those that may not be suitable have yet to be defined.
