PURPOSE We aimed to determine the correlations between the elasticity values of solid breast masses and histopathological findings to define cutoff elasticity values differentiating malignant from benign lesions. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 115 solid breast lesions of 109 consecutive patients were evaluated prospectively using shear wave elastography(More)
BACKGROUND Unilateral invasion of the internal jugular vein (IJV) after subtotal thyroidectomy caused by local recurrence of papillary thyroid carcinoma is extremely rare. We report a case of papillary thyroid carcinoma which invades IJV with hypervascular tumor thrombus. CASE REPORT We report a case of a 52-year-old woman with a history of previous(More)
Fibroadenoma is the most common breast tumor in women. Malignant transformation occurs rarely within fibroadenoma at older ages. Clinicians, radiologists, and pathologists need to be aware of malignant transformation within fibroadenomas. Radiologic studies play an important role in the diagnosis of fibroadenoma; however, radiologic findings are often(More)
PURPOSE We aimed to evaluate the utility of shear wave elastography (SWE) for assessing the placenta in preeclampsia disease. METHODS A total of 50 pregnant women in the second or third trimester (23 preeclampsia patients and 27 healthy control subjects) were enrolled in the study. Obstetrical grayscale and Doppler ultrasonography, SWE findings of(More)
Angiosarcoma is a rare breast tumor. In contrary to other breast tumors, primary breast angiosarcomas are seen in the third and fourth decades. Clinically, they present as rapidly growing masses. They can also be seen during pregnancy. The aim of this article is to report on a primary breast angiosarcoma case that occured during pregnancy and resulted in(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study to present the results of Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) guided cutting needle biopsy procedures of suspicious breast lesions that can be solely detected on Magnetic resonance (MR) examination. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study included 48 patients with 48 lesions which were solely be observed in breast MRI,(More)
OBJECTIVE Shear-wave elastography (SWE) presents quantitative data that thought to represent intrinsic features of the target tissue. Factors affecting the metabolism of the breast parenchyma as well as age, menstrual cycle, hormone levels, pregnancy and lactation, pre-compression artifact during the examination could affect these elastic intrinsic(More)
