Malmö Breast Tomosynthesis Screening Trial

2014-08-27 03:15:04 | BioPortfolio

Summary

To compare digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) with full field digital mammography (FFDM) regarding effectiveness as screening modalities.

Description

Mammography is the only approved method for breast cancer screening, but not all tumors can be detected with mammography. The main reason is overlapping structures that can either mimic or hide a tumor on a 2-dimensional image like mammography. Digital breast tomosynthesis, (DBT) is a 3-dimensional x-ray technique that has been developed during the last years. A tomographic technique like DBT, which reduces or eliminates the detrimental effect of over- and underlying tissue, can probably help to find more tumors. This study aims to investigate whether more breast cancers can be detected with DBT compared to full field digital mammography (FFDM) in population invited to screening.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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)

A deoxycytidine derivative and fluorouracil PRODRUG that is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC ANTIMETABOLITE in the treatment of COLON CANCER; BREAST CANCER and GASTRIC CANCER.

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.
