Role for Intraoperative Margin Assessment in Patients Undergoing Breast-Conserving Surgery
BackgroundPositive/close margins are associated with higher in-breast failure rates after breast-conserving surgery (BCS). We investigated whether intraoperative margin assessment aids in obtainingExpand

Atypical Ductal Hyperplasia in Directional Vacuum-Assisted Biopsy of Breast Microcalcifications: Considerations for Surgical Excision
BackgroundOur goal was to analyze clinicopathologic features of patients with atypical ductal hyperplasia (ADH) diagnosed on directional vacuum-assisted biopsy (DVAB) targeting microcalcifications toExpand

Measuring Intra- and Inter-Observer Agreement in Identifying and Localizing Structures in Medical Images
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 isExpand

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 marginExpand

Atypical ductal hyperplasia diagnosis by directional vacuum-assisted stereotactic biopsy of breast microcalcifications. Considerations for surgical excision.
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 underwentExpand

A dual-energy subtraction technique for microcalcification imaging in digital mammography--a signal-to-noise analysis.
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. TheExpand
