Purpose: To determine whether patients at high risk to develop breast cancer having received at least 6 cumulative dosages of macrocyclic Gd-based contrast media in the context of breast c...
Subjects with suspicious breast lesion (BIRADS category 4/5) who are scheduled to undergo biopsy will be recruited to undergo imaging evaluation with Contrast Enhanced Dual Energy Mammogra...
Up to one hundred (100) female patients will be enrolled and consented to participate in the study. These women will be enrolled from screening assigned BIRADS 0, patient complaint, or ref...
It is well known that X-ray contrast media can affect kidney function in some patients, especially when administered intra-arterially, and patients who already suffer from reduced kidney f...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of dosing iodinated contrast media according to a patient's total body weight vs. lean body weight. Participants will be randomized into...
Breast lesion detection and characterization with contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging: Prospective randomized intraindividual comparison of gadoterate meglumine (0.15 mmol/kg) and gadobenate dimeglumine (0.075 mmol/kg) at 3T.
Contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (CE-MRI) of the breast is highly sensitive for breast cancer detection. Multichannel coils and 3T scanners can increase signal, spatial, and temporal resol...
In patients with a history of a hypersensitivity reaction to iodinated contrast medium, iodinated contrast medium is avoided, antihistamine and steroid premedication are given, or a gadolinium-based c...
The various adverse drug reactions (ADRs) arise from different types of iodinated contrast media (ICM).
Contrast-enhanced spectral mammography (CESM) is a recently developed breast imaging technique. CESM relies on dual-energy acquisition following contrast agent injection to improve mammography sensiti...
A microwave imaging (MWI) methodology for early diagnosis of breast cancer is presented. Instead of generating a tomographic image of the breast, the proposed technique aims to recon...
Iodinated pyridine derivatives that are often used as contrast media.
Substances used to allow enhanced visualization of tissues.
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)
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.
