OBJECTIVE To investigate the clinical accuracy of magnetic resonance imaging-guided breast vacuum-assisted biopsy (MR-VAB). METHODS Of 97 scheduled MR-VAB for single MRI lesions (negative second-look sonography) categorised as BI-RADS 4 or 5, 4 were cancelled (undetected lesion = 2, technical problems = 2). Twenty-one patients lost to follow-up were(More)
BACKGROUND The identification and validation of suitable predictive and prognostic factors are a challenge to improve the treatment scheme selection. Discordances in histological grade can be established between core biopsy and surgical specimens. This is important in HR-positive/HER2-negative subgroup where histological grade identifies patients at high(More)
AIM To identify predictors for infiltrating carcinoma and lymph node involvement, before immediate breast reconstructive surgery, in patients with an initial diagnosis of extensive pure ductal carcinoma in situ of the breast (DCIS). PATIENTS AND METHODS Between January 2000 and December 2009, 241 patients with pure extensive DCIS in preoperative biopsy(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare the diagnostic performance of single-view breast tomosynthesis (BT) with that of dual-view mammography (MX); to assess the benefit of adding the craniocaudal (CC) mammographic view to BT, and of adding BT to MX plus breast ultrasound, considered to be the reference work-up. METHODS One hundred and fifty-five consenting patients with(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the outcome of breast conserving surgery comparing oncoplastic surgery (OS) and standard lumpectomy (SL) after preoperative bracketing wire localization of large neoplastic lesions. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the medical records and the mammograms of patients operated on at the Institut Curie(More)
PURPOSE To compare screening breast MRI with conventional screening techniques in high-risk patients with genetic mutation. MATERIALS AND METHODS Prospective study of 85 patients (mean age of 43 years) with genetic mutation and screening > or = 2 years (mean of 2.7 years, 231 screening examinations). BI-RADS lesions 3-5 were biopsied; isolated BI-RADS 3(More)
BACKGROUND Microscopically complete (R0) resection of metastases from uveal melanoma prolongs median overall survival compared to incomplete surgery. The aim of this study was to compare the sensitivity of dynamic-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) in the preoperative diagnosis of liver(More)
The identification of dilatations of the intrahepatic bile ducts in the absence of bile duct obstruction is rare. Imaging techniques, especially MR cholangio-pancreaticography, generally permit the distinction between fibrocystic liver diseases and polycystic liver diseases. The presence of dilated sacciform or tubular bile ducts on(More)
SUMMARY A woman in her 50s underwent delayed bilateral Poly Implant Prothèse implant reconstruction following mastectomy for breast cancer. Symptoms of implant rupture developed 43 months after surgery with an erythematous rash on her trunk. The rash then spread to her reconstructed breast mounds. Initial ultrasound scan and magnetic resonance imaging were(More)
