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.
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.

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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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.
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...
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.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
