Clinical presentation of ductal carcinoma in situ of breast with intraluminal crystalloids: Radiologic-histologic correlation.

Intraluminal crystalloids have rarely been described in the breast, particularly in cases with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). We recently encountered a case of DCIS of the breast associated with num...

Microcalcifications Detected at Screening Mammography: Synthetic Mammography and Digital Breast Tomosynthesis versus Digital Mammography.

Purpose To compare the performance of two-dimensional synthetic mammography (SM) plus digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) versus conventional full-field digital mammography (FFDM) in the detection of m...

Microcalcifications in breast cancer: From pathophysiology to diagnosis and prognosis.

The implementation of mammographic screening programmes in many countries has been linked to a marked increase in early detection and improved prognosis for breast cancer patients. Breast tumours can ...

US and MRI in the evaluation of mammographic BI-RADS 4 and 5 microcalcifications.

The aim of this study was to assess diagnostic accuracies of ultrasonography (US) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in lesions that manifest as mammographic BI-RADS 4 and 5 microcalcifications, in ...

Studying biomineralization pathways in a 3D culture model of breast cancer microcalcifications.

Microcalcifications serve as diagnostic markers for breast cancer, yet their formation pathway(s) and role in cancer progression are debated due in part to a lack of relevant 3D culture models that al...

Clinical Trials [8571 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Vibro-Acoustography Imaging in Finding Breast Microcalcifications and Lesions in Women

RATIONALE: New diagnostic procedures, such as vibro-acoustography imaging, may be an effective method of finding microcalcifications and lesions in the breast. PURPOSE: This clinical tria...

Breast Lesion Analysis for Tomosynthesis Mammography

The purpose of this study is to develop a computer-aided diagnosis system to find breast lesions, including masses and microcalcifications, which hopefully will improve breast cancer detec...

Study to Evaluate the Diagnostic Value of a Combined Molecular Breast Imaging/ Breast Tomosynthesis Modality

The purpose of this pilot study is to investigate the potential clinical benefits of combining two new diagnostic tools to provide co-registered anatomical and functional information in th...

Comparison of MRI and Molecular Breast Imaging in Breast Diagnostic Evaluation

The purpose of this study is to determine the sensitivity of Molecular Breast Imaging (MBI) relative to MRI of the breast in patients undergoing MRI for a clinical concern, or abnormal dia...

Biological Therapy in Treating Women With Stage IV Breast Cancer

RATIONALE: Biological therapies use different ways to stimulate the immune system and stop cancer cells from growing. Combining different types of biological therapies may kill more tumor ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

A common and benign breast disease characterized by varying degree of fibrocystic changes in the breast tissue. There are three major patterns of morphological changes, including FIBROSIS, formation of CYSTS, and proliferation of glandular tissue (adenosis). The fibrocystic breast has a dense irregular, lumpy, bumpy consistency.

Abnormal accumulation of lymph in the arm, shoulder and breast area associated with surgical or radiation breast cancer treatments (e.g., MASTECTOMY).

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.

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.
