Effect of Surgery and Radiation Therapy on Tc-99M Sestamibi Uptake Patterns in Molecular Breast Imaging

2014-08-27 03:17:26 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The investigators hope to prove that radiation and surgical scarring does not result in changes that affect the MBI pattern 6-12 months after completion of treatment.

Description

The study will allow us to evaluate whether surgery and radiation have persistent effects on the breast tissue with regards to whether and how such changes impact MBI images and to determine whether the inflammatory changes due to treatment resolve within 6-12 months of completing treatment.

Molecular Breast Imaging in Screening Breast Cancer

The molecular breast imaging (MBI) is a potential modality to screen breast cancer. In this study, we compare and evaluate the recall rate/diagnostic efficiency of MBI, mammography and bre...

Comparison of MRI and Molecular Breast Imaging in Breast Diagnostic Evaluation

The purpose of this study is to determine the sensitivity of Molecular Breast Imaging (MBI) relative to MRI of the breast in patients undergoing MRI for a clinical concern, or abnormal dia...

Use of Molecular Breast Imaging (MBI) to Detect Additional Disease in Women With Breast Cancer Who Are About to go to Surgery

Conventional mammography is not a reliable method for determining the extent of disease in women with breast cancer. Molecular Breast Imaging (MBI) is a new nuclear medicine technique that...

Study to Evaluate the Diagnostic Value of a Combined Molecular Breast Imaging/ Breast Tomosynthesis Modality

The purpose of this pilot study is to investigate the potential clinical benefits of combining two new diagnostic tools to provide co-registered anatomical and functional information in th...

Comparison of Molecular Breast Imaging and Digital Breast Tomosynthesis for Screening in Women With Dense Breasts

The significance of this study is that it will be the first prospective trial to compare MBI, a relatively low-cost functional breast imaging technique, to DBT, the new standard anatomic b...

Predictive value of breast magnetic resonance imaging in detecting mammographically occult contralateral breast cancer: Can we target women more likely to have contralateral breast cancer?

Preoperative breast magnetic resonance imaging (B-MRI) staging in newly diagnosed breast cancer increases detection of synchronous contralateral findings, but may result in false-positive outcomes. Th...

Clinical and molecular aspects of breast cancer: Targets and therapies.

Breast Cancer is a complex disease characterized by the occurrence of multiple molecular alterations. Currently, some molecular markers are in use for breast cancer diagnostic, prognostic, and predict...

A new look at molecular biology of breast cancer.

In the past 25 years, incidence rates of breast cancer have risen about 30% in westernized countries. Mutations in BRCA1 and BRCA2 are the most prominent cause of breast cancer. However, these cancer...

Breast cancer staging: Combined digital breast tomosynthesis and automated breast ultrasound versus magnetic resonance imaging.

To investigate whether combined Digital breast tomosynthesis and Automated breast volume scanner (DBT-ABVS) are comparable to Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in staging breast cancer.

Abbreviated protocol breast MRI: The past, present, and future.

Breast MRI has been shown to be the most sensitive examination in the detection of breast cancer. However, given the high associated costs, its use in the screening setting has traditionally been limi...

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.

Use of ultrasound for imaging the breast. The most frequent application is the diagnosis of neoplasms of the female breast.

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.

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.
