Evaluation of Tomosynthesis for Characterization and the Management of Breast Lesions

2016-11-10 09:38:22 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Tomosynthesis is an innovative technique developed in digital mammography for obtaining a sectional image of the breast. Mammography has the main disadvantage of being an imaging projection that creates overlays, which eliminates tomosynthesis.

The objective of this study is to evaluate if the BI-RADS classification obtained by tomosynthesis with synthetic mammography is superior to that obtained by conventional mammography in terms of specificity while not inferior in terms of sensitivity.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Measurement of relative composition of different BREAST tissue types often determined from MAMMOGRAPHY; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; or MRI.

Radiographic examination of the breast.

A type of oropharyngeal airway that provides an alternative to endotracheal intubation and standard mask anesthesia in certain patients. It is introduced into the hypopharynx to form a seal around the larynx thus permitting spontaneous or positive pressure ventilation without penetration of the larynx or esophagus. It is used in place of a facemask in routine anesthesia. The advantages over standard mask anesthesia are better airway control, minimal anesthetic gas leakage, a secure airway during patient transport to the recovery area, and minimal postoperative problems.

Breast neoplasms that do not express ESTROGEN RECEPTORS; PROGESTERONE RECEPTORS; and do not overexpress the NEU RECEPTOR/HER-2 PROTO-ONCOGENE PROTEIN.

Any neoplasms of the male breast. These occur infrequently in males in developed countries, the incidence being about 1% of that in females.
