To investigate the clinical accuracy of magnetic resonance imaging-guided breast vacuum-assisted biopsy (MR-VAB). 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 excluded. Twenty-three(More)
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. One hundred and fifty-five consenting patients with unresolved(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)
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)
Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia (ARVD) is a heart muscle disease of unknown origin. Although MR imaging is regarded as the best technique for the demonstration of functional and structural abnormalities in ARVD, fat deposits in the interventricular septum have never been documented on MR imaging. We report the case of interventricular septal(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the clinic-pathologic variables and the prognosis of endometrial cancer in patients with and without previous breast cancer, with and without Tamoxifen. METHODS We analyzed patients treated for an endometrial carcinoma from 1994 to 2004: patients without breast cancer (group 1), patients with a previous breast cancer without tamoxifen(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)
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)
OBJECTIVE To describe the computed tomography (CT) features at diagnosis and after treatment of adenocarcinoma of unknown primary (ACUP) mimicking lymphoma of the mediastinum. METHODS Fifteen patients with pathologically proven ACUP and with primarily mediastinal involvement were initially referred to the Hematologic Department of our institution with a(More)
