Breast cancer imaging phenotype is diverse and may relate to molecular alterations driving cancer behavior. We systematically reviewed and meta-analyzed relations between breast cancer imaging features and human epidermal growth factor receptor type 2 (HER2) overexpression as a marker of breast cancer aggressiveness. MEDLINE and EMBASE were searched for(More)
The goal of this study was to review the prognostic value of cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging findings for future cardiovascular events in patients with a recent myocardial infarction (MI) and patients with suspected or known coronary artery disease (CAD). Although the diagnostic value of CMR findings is established, the independent prognostic(More)
Purpose: To provide proof of principle of safety, breast tumor-specific uptake, and positive tumor margin assessment of the systemically administered near-infrared fluorescent tracer bevacizumab-IRDye800CW targeting VEGF-A in patients with breast cancer.Experimental Design: Twenty patients with primary invasive breast cancer eligible for primary surgery(More)
Optical breast imaging offers the possibility of noninvasive, low cost, and high sensitivity imaging of breast cancers. Poor spatial resolution and a lack of anatomical landmarks in optical images of the breast make interpretation difficult and motivate registration and fusion of these data with subsequent optical images and other breast imaging modalities.(More)
The purpose of this study was to develop a molecular imaging technique using tracers specific for ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) to improve visualization and localization of DCIS during surgery. As CD44v6 is frequently expressed in DCIS, we used near-infrared fluorescently labeled CD44v6-targeting antibodies for detection of DCIS. Mice bearing(More)
Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) of the breast is difficult to remove completely during surgery as it is not palpable and can therefore require re-excision. Real-time visualization of DCIS using near-infrared fluorescent probes could help the surgeon during surgery as well as the pathologist post-operatively to distinguish the tumor from healthy tissue. As(More)
The aim of this work was to develop a CAIX-specific nanobody conjugated to IRDye800CW for molecular imaging of pre-invasive breast cancer. CAIX-specific nanobodies were selected using a modified phage display technology, conjugated site-specifically to IRDye800CW and evaluated in a xenograft breast cancer mouse model using ductal carcinoma in situ cells(More)
To evaluate if clinical fluorescence imaging of IRDye800CW is feasible on our fluorescence optical mammography system by estimating detection limits assessed by breast-cancer-simulating phantom experiments. Phantoms (2.1 cm(3), 0.9 cm(3)) with IRDye800CW concentrations of 0.5 to 120 nM were suspended in a 550 cm(3) measurement cup containing 507(More)
We thank Drs. Eitel and Thiele for the interest in our work (1). They highlight some possible limitations of our approach on several points that merit discussion. Cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) is a continuously evolving technique, which leads to new opportunities and the expansion of indications. In our systematic review, we summarized all(More)
Molecular imaging of breast cancer is a promising emerging technology, potentially able to improve clinical care. Valid imaging targets for molecular imaging tracer development are membrane-bound hypoxia-related proteins, expressed when tumor growth outpaces neo-angiogenesis. We performed a systematic literature review and meta-analysis of such hypoxia(More)
