Recurrent swelling, usually due to haemarthrosis, and intermittent pain may be present for a long time before the diagnosis is made. In this case report the common features of the condition are described, with emphasis on the occurrence of atraumatic(More)
OBJECTIVES Handheld breast ultrasound (HHUS) lacks standardization and reproducibility. The automated breast volume scanner (ABVS) could overcome this limitation. To analyze the interobserver reliability of ABVS and the agreement with HHUS, mammography and pathology is the aim of this study. METHODS All 42 study participants (=84 breasts) received an ABVS(More)
Automated three-dimensional (3D) breast ultrasound (US) systems are meant to overcome the shortcomings of hand-held ultrasound (HHUS). The aim of this study is to analyze and compare clinical performance of an automated 3D-US system by comparing it with HHUS, mammography and the clinical gold standard (defined as the combination of HHUS, mammography and—if(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate virtual touch tissue imaging quantification (VTIQ) as a new elastography method concerning its intra- and interexaminer reliability and its ability to differentiate benign from malignant breast lesions in comparison to and in combination with ultrasound (US) B-mode breast imaging reporting and data system (BI-RADS) assessment.

We evaluated whether a supplementary preoperative breast MRI in patients with invasive lobular breast cancer (ILC) has changed number and methods of primary and number of secondary surgical interventions. This was a retrospective controlled single-center analysis of 178 ILC patients. The 2 study groups consisted of 92 patients with breast MRI (MRI group)(More)
Reexcision is a clinically relevant aspect of oncological breast conservation surgery. The influence of reexcision on aesthetic outcome is described differently in the literature. Our aim was to analyze this question in a well-defined cohort with standardized study instruments. A total of 439 patients from a prospectively followed cohort were included in(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim was to evaluate the effect of short-term cardiac rehabilitation (CR) on clinical events during a 1-year follow-up after acute myocardial infarction. METHODS From the observational, prospective Acute COronary Syndromes (ACOS) registry, 4547 consecutive patients after ST-elevation (STEMI: n = 2432) or non-ST-elevation myocardial(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate normal breast tissue stiffness with virtual touch tissue imaging quantification (VTIQ) using prospectively collected data. MATERIALS AND METHODS B-mode ultrasound and VTIQ were performed in 132 breasts in 97 women. Mean values of VTIQ for parenchyma and fatty tissue were compared between those measured in healthy breasts and in the(More)
PURPOSE We analyzed changes in aesthetic and functional outcome over time after breast conserving therapy. Our special interest resides in the question of whether these aspects gain or loose their influence on quality of life (QoL) with temporal progress. PATIENTS AND METHODS This prospective single centre cohort study included 138 patients, treated with(More)
OBJECTIVE A study was performed to determine the appropriate time for the initiation of therapy for thyroid carcinoma first diagnosed during pregnancy. DATA SOURCES Material on thyroid cancer cases was obtained from the New Mexico Tumor Registry, Albuquerque, a computerized population-based registry for the state of New Mexico, and the Indian reservation(More)
