A prospective study of transmission spectroscopy (lightscanning) has been performed on 285 women presenting with symptomatic breast disease to one outpatient clinic. Of the 41 patients with histologically confirmed breast cancer lightscanning detected 36 (87.8%). In the study group 164 patients had both lightscans and mammography performed and, of the 30(More)
In the UK Trial for the Early Detection of Breast Cancer in Nottingham, 119 women were identified as having fibrocystic change with epithelial hyperplasia or in situ carcinoma. Their mammograms were classified according to Wolfe's criteria and the corresponding histology for each patient was classified for degrees of epithelial hyperplasia, atypia and in(More)
This report presents the results of a study into the effect of breast self-examination (BSE) in a large defined population within the City of Nottingham since 1979. We have examined the effect of breast self-examination in a group of patients invited to attend for education in BSE compared with a group of historical controls. No overall survival advantage(More)
Fifty-seven patients with carcinoma of the breast were assessed with serial mammograms following local excision and radiotherapy. The mammographic appearances due to radiotherapy were categorised and the changes in these with the passage of time have been studied. Residual tumour was identified on the basis of remaining malignant-type microcalcification.(More)
The relation between the parenchymal pattern of the breasts as demonstrated on a mammogram and the estrogen-receptor status of the primary tumor in 337 patients with operable invasive breast cancer has been studied. These factors have also been correlated with the response to endocrine therapy in 92 patients who subsequently developed secondary disease. It(More)
The improvement of mammographic specificity was investigated by means of identifying specific radiological features. Data are presented on the first 500 patients studied who had previously undergone mammography followed by biopsy. The presence of specific mammographic features on each radiograph, first determined by retrospective examination, was entered(More)
