To improve the workflow and productivity at a Breast Imaging Center, primarily by decreasing the no-show rate.
Partial breast irradiation using intraoperative radiotherapy (IORT) after breast-conserving surgery could be sufficient for a selected group of breast cancer patients. We report the results of a cohort of patients from a single center treated as part of the randomized phase-3 TARGIT-A trial.
Unlike sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) in the primary setting, the repeat SLNB (rSLNB) in patients with ipsilateral breast tumor recurrence (IBTR) is challenging, because it is difficult to visualize and/or harvest a sentinel lymph node in every patient. Regional treatments options and safety in terms of regional disease control after such an unsuccessful rSLNB remain unclear. This study assesses factors associated with the performance of axillary lymph node dissection (ALND) after unsuccessful rSLNB and ...
We present a single center's experience of treatment outcomes and dosimetric parameters for breast cancer patients treated with hypofractionated Helical TomoTherapy (HT). This is a retrospective study of one hundred and thirty-six patients with invasive breast cancer treated between March 2012 and October 2016. Dosimetric parameters and 3-year loco-regional failure free survival (LRFFS) were analyzed. Dose to ipsilateral lung, heart and contralateral breast as well as acute and late toxicities were recorded...
This study was designed to determine whether accreditation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) is associated with improved performance on six breast quality measures pertaining to adjuvant treatment, needle/core biopsy, and breast conservation therapy rates at Commission on Cancer (CoC) centers.
To assess the incidence and clinical significance of discrepancy in subspecialty interpretation of outside breast imaging examinations for newly diagnosed breast cancer patients presenting to a tertiary cancer center.
Evaluate the clinical presentation and imaging findings of breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA ALCL) at a large US cancer center.

The Regional Cardiocerebrovascular Center (RCCVC) Project designated local teaching hospitals as RCCVCs, in order to improve patient outcomes of acute cardiocerebrovascular emergencies by founding a regional system that can adequately transfer and manage patients within 3 hours. We investigated the effects of RCCVC establishment on treatment volume and 30-day mortality.

Complications of tissue expanders (TEs) in breast reconstruction are challenging. We sought to identify TE infection risks and acellular dermal matrix (ADM) and infection control protocol impacts on infection in a longitudinal study.
The disseminated tumor cells (DTC) are collected in the bone marrow and are the witness of micrometastatic spread. We previously reported that DTC could be a predictive factor of the efficacy of regional node irradiation (IMN/SCN: internal mammary nodes & supra-infra clavicular nodes). In this article, we report the long-term results (>10 years) on the impact of DTC status in early-stage breast cancer.
The aim of this study was to analyse the efficacy of breast-conserving therapy (BCT) for women with primary DCIS in a population-based setting.
To date, studies on inflammatory breast cancer (IBC) lack comprehensive epidemiological data. We analyzed detailed prospectively collected clinical and epidemiological data from the IBC Registry at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.
The theme of the 15th St. Gallen International Breast Cancer Conference 2017 in Vienna, Austria was about seeking where appropriate to escalate or de-escalate therapies for early breast cancer based on the up-to-date information of loco-regional and systemic therapies. Along with this line, a group of Egyptian experts decided to arrange for a consensus session to elicit the differences and similarities in therapy recommendations for early breast cancer in Egypt compared to the original Saint Gallen voting a...
The aim of this study was to determine if, in inflammatory breast cancer (IBC), baseline metabolic activity (maximum standardized uptake value [SUVmax]) of primary tumor and involved regional lymph nodes (IRLN) are prognostic markers of response after neoadjuvant systemic therapy (NAS).
Immediate partial breast reconstruction after breast-conserving surgery has become a new paradigm in treating breast cancer. Among the volume replacement techniques used for small to moderate-sized breasts, the perforator flap method has many advantages. The authors present anatomical studies and two surgical techniques using lateral intercostal artery perforator flaps.
Hormone receptor positive breast cancer is characterized by a prolonged risk of recurrence. Extended adjuvant endocrine therapy improves disease-free survival (DFS), but no effect on overall survival has been observed. This may be explained by changes in the relative contribution of local, regional and distant recurrences as well as non-breast cancer death to DFS events over time.
Resuscitative thoracotomy (RT) can be a lifesaving treatment, but it has not yet been performed in Korea. In this study, we review our experience of RT after a regional trauma center was constructed.
Neuroendocrine carcinoma (NEC) of the breast is a rare, special type of breast cancer, reportedly constituting 2% to 5% of all breast cancers. Although breast NEC does not have a specific targeted therapy, several new targeted therapies based on specific biomarkers were recently investigated in the NEC of lung and in other types of breast carcinoma, which may provide guidance to their feasibility in breast NEC.
Burn injuries result in 50,000 annual admissions. Despite joint referral criteria from the American College of Surgeons (ACS) and American Burn Association (ABA), many severely injured patients are not treated at verified centers with specialized care. Only one prior study explores regional variation in access to burn centers, focusing on flight or driving distance without considering the size of the population accessing that center. We hypothesize that disparities exist in access to verified centers, measu...
Non-classic lobular carcinoma in situ (NC-LCIS) is a rare pre-cancer breast lesion that warrants excision to exclude invasive disease. In patients pursuing breast-conserving surgery (BCS) for NC-LCIS, the need for wide surgical margins is controversial. We characterized the outcomes of women diagnosed with NC-LCIS at a large, academic medical center.
This study aimed to measure received dose to the pelvic region of patients during breast intraoperative electron radiation therapy (IOERT). Furthermore, we compared the findings with those of external beam radiation therapy. Finally, secondary ovary and uterus cancer risks following breast IOERT were estimated. In the current study, the received dose to the pelvic surface of 18 female patients during breast IOERT boost were measured by thermoluminescent dosimeter (TLD-100) chips. All patients were treated w...
Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death due to cancer in women. Triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) is a subgroup with unique behavior. There is a controversy in organ involvement in metastasis. In this study, we planned to define the prognostic factors, survival, and recurrence incidence of patients.
