BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to evaluate the significance of FDG-PET/CT for predicting the underestimation of invasive breast cancer in cases of DCIS at needle biopsy. PATIENTS AND METHODS Of 83 consecutive cases with diagnoses of DCIS at primary needle biopsy who underwent curative surgery between 2010 and 2013, the association between the SUVmax(More)
OBJECTIVE We aimed to determine whether contrast-enhanced ultrasonography can predict the effects of neoadjuvant chemotherapy on breast cancer. METHODS The clinical responses of 63 consecutive patients with breast cancer (T1-4, N0-1, M0) to neoadjuvant chemotherapy between October 2012 and May 2015 were assessed using contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance(More)

A 47-year-old female presented with swelling and pain in the neck. She had no history of trauma or of having undergone any medical or odontological procedures. An ultrasound examination revealed the presence of an(More)
Whether the contrast effects of perflubutane on contrast-enhanced ultrasonography can predict the malignancy grade of breast cancer is unknown. We analyzed associations between perfusion parameters created from time-intensity curves based on enhancement intensity and temporal changes in contrast-enhanced ultrasonography and clinicopathologic factors in 100(More)
