    Importance: There is little evidence on population-based harms and benefits of screening breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in women with and without a personal history of breast cancer (PHBC).

    Objective: To evaluate biopsy rates and yield in the 90 days following screening (mammography vs magnetic resonance imaging with or without mammography) among women with and without a PHBC.

    Design, Setting, and Participants: Observational cohort study of 6 Breast Cancer Surveillance ...

    OBJECTIVE: Our goals were to determine the frequency and upgrade rate for atypical ductal hyperplasia (ADH) diagnosed with stereotactic 9-gauge vacuum-assisted breast biopsy and to compare the frequencies and upgrade rates of ADH between 9- and 11-gauge vacuum-assisted breast biopsy.

    MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the pathology results of 991 consecutive 9- or 11-gauge stereotactic vacuum-assisted breast biopsy procedures from February 2001 through June 2006 and ...

    PURPOSE: To investigate whether qualitative magnetic resonance (MR) imaging assessments of background parenchymal enhancement (BPE), amount of fibroglandular tissue (FGT), and mammographic density are associated with risk of developing breast cancer in women who are at high risk.

    MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this institutional review board-approved HIPAA-compliant retrospective study, all screening breast MR images obtained from January 2006 to December 2011 in women aged 18 years or older ...

    BACKGROUND: The authors compared the performance of screening mammography versus magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in women at genetically high risk for breast cancer.

    METHODS: The authors conducted an international prospective study of screening mammography and MRI in asymptomatic, genetically high-risk women age >/= 25 years. Women with a history of breast cancer were eligible for a contralateral screening if they had been diagnosed within 5 years or a bilateral screening if they had ...

    Among women around the globe, breast cancer is both the most common cancer and the leading cause of cancer-related death. Women in economically disadvantaged countries have a lower incidence of breast cancer, but poorer survival rates for the disease relative to women in affluent countries. Evidence suggests that breast cancer mortality can be reduced if resources are applied to the problem in a systematic way. The purpose of the Global Summit Consensus Conference was to begin a process ...

    BACKGROUND: Even after careful clinical and mammographic evaluation, cancer is found in the contralateral breast in up to 10% of women who have received treatment for unilateral breast cancer. We conducted a study to determine whether magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) could improve on clinical breast examination and mammography in detecting contralateral breast cancer soon after the initial diagnosis of unilateral breast cancer.

    METHODS: A total of 969 women with a recent diagnosis of ...

    OBJECTIVE: The purpose of our study was to investigate whether adding diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) to dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI (DCE-MRI) could improve the positive predictive value (PPV) of breast MRI.

    MATERIALS AND METHODS: The retrospective study included 70 women with 83 suspicious breast lesions on DCE-MRI (BI-RADS 4 or 5) who underwent subsequent biopsy. DWI was acquired during clinical breast MRI using b = 0 and 600 s/mm(2). Apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values were ...

    BACKGROUND: Twenty-one states have laws requiring that women be notified if they have dense breasts and that they be advised to discuss supplemental imaging with their provider.

    OBJECTIVE: To better direct discussions of supplemental imaging by determining which combinations of breast cancer risk and Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS) breast density categories are associated with high interval cancer rates.

    DESIGN: Prospective cohort.

    SETTING: Breast Cancer Surveillance ...

    OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to determine whether lesion type and size affect discrimination of benign and malignant breast lesions with diffusion-weighted MRI.

    MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study included 91 women with 116 breast lesions identified with dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI. Diffusion-weighted images were acquired during clinical breast MRI at b values of 0 and 600 s/mm(2). Differences in the apparent diffusion coefficients (ADCs) of benign and malignant lesions were ...

    OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this article is to determine the frequency, outcomes, and imaging features of high-risk lesions initially detected by breast MRI, including atypical ductal hyperplasia, atypical lobular hyperplasia, lobular carcinoma in situ, and radial scar.

    MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective review of our MRI pathology database was performed to identify all lesions initially detected with MRI (January 2003 through May 2007) that underwent imaging-guided needle biopsy ...

    PURPOSE: To compare magnetic resonance (MR) imaging findings and clinical assessment for prediction of pathologic response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT) in patients with stage II or III breast cancer.

    MATERIALS AND METHODS: The HIPAA-compliant protocol and the informed consent process were approved by the American College of Radiology Institutional Review Board and local-site institutional review boards. Women with invasive breast cancer of 3 cm or greater undergoing NACT with an ...

    BackgroundThe surgical management of lobular in-situ neoplasia (LN) identified by core needle biopsy (CNB) is currently variable. Our institution has routinely excised LN on CNB since 2003, allowing for an unbiased assessment of upgrade rates.MethodsCases of LN on CNB, including atypical lobular hyperplasia (ALH) and lobular carcinoma-in-situ (LCIS), were identified in our pathology database. CNBs with concurrent pleomorphic LCIS, ductal carcinoma-in-situ (DCIS), and invasive carcinoma ...

    BACKGROUND: Many states have laws requiring mammography facilities to tell women with dense breasts and negative results on screening mammography to discuss supplemental screening tests with their providers. The most readily available supplemental screening method is ultrasonography, but little is known about its effectiveness.

    OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the benefits, harms, and cost-effectiveness of supplemental ultrasonography screening for women with dense breasts.

    DESIGN: Comparative ...

    OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study is to compare the risk of malignancy associated with architectural distortion detected on 2D digital mammography (DM) versus digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT).

    MATERIALS AND METHODS: We performed a retrospective review of architectural distortion cases recommended for biopsy from September 2007 to February 2011, the period before DBT integration (hereafter known as the DM group), and from January 2013 to June 2016, the period after DBT integration ...

    Purpose To determine whether the rates and tumor characteristics of screening-detected and interval cancers differ for two-dimensional digital mammography (DM) versus digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) mammography. Materials and Methods Consecutive screening mammograms from January 2009 to February 2011 (DM group, before DBT integration) and from January 2013 to February 2015 (DBT group, after complete DBT integration) were reviewed. Cancers were considered screening detected if ...
