We propose to use the complex wavelet structural similarity index (CW-SSIM) method to measure the variability in identifying and localizing structures on images. Expand
The sternalis muscle: an unusual normal finding seen on mammography.
OBJECTIVE We studied the appearance of the sternalis muscle on mammography and on CT and MR imaging. To our knowledge, this is the first description of this normal anatomic variant. An approach is… Expand
Intraoperative margin assessment reduces reexcision rates in patients with ductal carcinoma in situ treated with breast-conserving surgery.
BACKGROUND Reported rates of reexcision for margin control after breast-conserving surgery for ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) range from 48% to 59%. The optimal technique for intraoperative margin… Expand
Atypical ductal hyperplasia diagnosis by directional vacuum-assisted stereotactic biopsy of breast microcalcifications. Considerations for surgical excision.

- American journal of clinical pathology
- 1 February 2003
In 824 patients who underwent directional vacuum-assisted biopsies (DVABs) of breast microcalcifications, 61 (7.4%) showed atypical ductal hyperplasia (ADH). The 42 who subsequently underwent… Expand

Breast cancer may manifest as microcalcifications (microCs) in x-ray mammography. However, the detection and visualization of microCs are often obscured by the overlapping tissue structures. The… Expand
The reliability of measuring physical characteristics of spiculated masses on mammography.
The goal of this study was to assess the reliability of measurements of the physical characteristics of spiculated masses on mammography. The images used in this study were obtained from the Digital… Expand
Neoadjuvant chemotherapy for breast carcinoma
The majority of patients with breast carcinoma receive chemotherapy as a component of multimodality treatment. Over the past decade, it has become increasingly more common to deliver chemotherapy… Expand
