DNA microarray profiling studies have led to the classification of invasive breast carcinoma into luminal/estrogen receptor-positive, normal breast-like, Her2/neu-overexpressing, and basal-like types. Among these groups, the basal-like subtype is associated with the poorest clinical outcome in Western countries. To date, the clinicopathologic(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of our study was to retrospectively assess the potential role of sonographic features and biopsy in the management of patients with papillary lesions diagnosed at percutaneous sonographically guided biopsy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Surgical or sonographic follow-up (> or = 2 years) was available in 123 women (age range, 21-75 years;(More)
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a matrix of fibrin and platelets that releases cytokines that are important in wound healing. PRP is produced from the patient's blood and therefore has less risk of allergic reaction and infection. We have obtained PRP with an enhanced white blood cell component (W-PRP) by optimizing the centrifugal separation of PRP from(More)
A set of specific precursor microRNAs (pre-miRNAs) are reported to localize into neuronal dendrites, where they could be processed locally to control synaptic protein synthesis and plasticity. However, it is not clear whether specific pre-miRNAs are also transported into distal axons to autonomously regulate intra-axonal protein synthesis. Here, we show(More)
To evaluate the diagnostic performance of automated breast ultrasound (ABUS) after breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as a replacement for hand-held second-look ultrasound (HH-SLUS), we evaluated 58 consecutive patients with breast cancer who had additional suspicious lesions on breast MRI. All patients underwent HH-SLUS and ABUS. Three breast(More)
Breast ultrasonography (US) is currently considered the first-line examination in the detection and characterization of breast lesions. However, conventional handheld US (HHUS) has several limitations such as operator dependence and the requirement of a considerable amount of radiologist time for whole-breast US. Automated breast US (ABUS), recently(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of our study was to retrospectively compare the sonographic and pathologic features of screening-detected and symptomatic ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). MATERIALS AND METHODS Of 5,790 cases diagnosed as breast cancer at our institution between January 1998 and December 2005, 528 (9.1%) cases were DCIS. We found 106(More)
Breast cancer is the second most common cause of cancer-related death in women. In most patients, imaging demonstrates thoracic changes resulting from either treatment, complications of treatment, or tumor recurrence or metastasis. The postsurgical imaging appearance of the chest wall depends on the surgical method used (radical mastectomy, modified radical(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the mammographic and sonographic findings of pregnancy-associated breast cancer. METHODS A total of 22 consecutive patients with breast cancer pathologically diagnosed during pregnancy (n = 10) or lactation (n = 12) were included in this study. The ages of the patients ranged from 26 to 49 years. Both mammography and sonography were(More)
Localized translation of axonal mRNAs contributes to developmental and regenerative axon growth. Although untranslated regions (UTRs) of many different axonal mRNAs appear to drive their localization, there has been no consensus RNA structure responsible for this localization. We recently showed that limited expression of ZBP1 protein restricts axonal(More)
