Inflammatory Breast Neoplasms
Metastatic breast cancer characterized by EDEMA and ERYTHEMA of the affected breast due to LYMPHATIC METASTASIS and eventual obstruction of LYMPHATIC VESSELS by the cancer cells.
Use of ultrasound for imaging the breast. The most frequent application is the diagnosis of neoplasms of the female breast.
Carbohydrate antigen elevated in patients with tumors of the breast, ovary, lung, and prostate as well as other disorders. The mucin is expressed normally by most glandular epithelia but shows particularly increased expression in the breast at lactation and in malignancy. It is thus an established serum marker for breast cancer.
A fluid-filled closed cavity or sac that is lined by an EPITHELIUM and found in the BREAST. It may appear as a single large cyst in one breast, multifocal, or bilateral in FIBROCYSTIC BREAST DISEASE.
Tumors or cancer of the human BREAST.
Detection of mreast cancer as early as possible is an ongoing imaging challenge.The purpose of the current study is to assess the clinical performance of the new scintigraphic technology,...
Aim: This study aims at evaluating the performances of an intraoperative gamma camera (field of view 10X10 cm), named CarolIReS, to detect axillary drainage and to assess the removal of se...
This study is being done to test the ability of an investigational breast imaging camera to distinguish between cancerous tumors in the breast and tumors in the breast which are benign (no...
A feasibility trial to evaluate the usefulness of a high efficiency camera (D-SPECT) as an imaging modality for general nuclear medicine applications such as oncology.
Conventional mammography is not a reliable method for determining the extent of disease in women with breast cancer. Molecular Breast Imaging (MBI) is a new nuclear medicine technique that...
OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the adjunctive benefits of breast-specific gamma imaging (BSGI) versus magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in breast cancer patients...
PURPOSE: Planar lymphoscintigraphy is routinely used for preoperative sentinel node visualization, but large gamma cameras are not always available. We evaluated the reproducibility of lymphatic mappi...
Molecular imaging is concerned with the presentation, description and quantification of biological and physiological processes at the cellular and molecular level. Most recently molecular imaging has...
Inflammatory breast carcinoma (IBC) is rare; however, it is the most aggressive variant of breast cancer with a very poor outcome. Locally advanced breast cancer and acute mastitis have a presentation...
Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) of the breast is a rare disease. Herein, we report a rare case of secondary involvement of the breast by NHL in a male patient and the ultrasound imaging findings. A 70-year...
