Study of Dual-energy (DE) Contrast-enhanced (CE) Digital Mammography

2016-12-19 20:38:22 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This is a feasibility study to evaluate dual-energy (DE) contrast-enhanced (CE) digital mammography to detect breast cancer in patients with increased breast density (BI-RADS category c or d). Eligible patients will be invited to have full-field digital mammography and dual-energy (DE) contrast-enhanced (CE) digital mammography to compare accuracy of the imaging methods for the detection of breast cancer.

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.

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.

A infiltrating (invasive) breast cancer, relatively uncommon, accounting for only 5%-10% of breast tumors in most series. It is often an area of ill-defined thickening in the breast, in contrast to the dominant lump characteristic of ductal carcinoma. It is typically composed of small cells in a linear arrangement with a tendency to grow around ducts and lobules. There is likelihood of axillary nodal involvement with metastasis to meningeal and serosal surfaces. (DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1205)
