Histologically classified benign breast disorder was present in 163 breast of 158 symptomatic women. The results of diaphanography (DPG) were correlated with those obtained by clinical examination (CE), mammography (M) and cytology (C). A tumour was palpable in 108 cases (66.3%). A false positive diagnosis, i.e. possibly malignant, probably malignant or(More)
Diaphanograms of various breast disorders were obtained and investigations were made concerning the ways in which changes in skin temperature, fine needle aspiration biopsy and surgery as well as anti-oestrogen treatment affect the findings. A lowering of the skin temperature made it impossible to detect some of the vessels in the breast and more difficult(More)
BACKGROUND Cardiac conduction disturbances are common in spondyloarthropathies such as ankylosing spondylitis (AS). Whether their occurrence can be linked to signs and symptoms of rheumatic disease activity is an unsettled issue addressed in this study. METHODS In this cross-sectional study patients with AS according to modified New York criteria but(More)
The vascularity of the breasts was examined by thermographic and diaphanographic methods in normal and scoliotic girls. The thermal emission from the skin registered with an AGA Thermovision 750 camera (Stockholm, Sweden) on black and white Polaroid film was evaluated visually by 10 independent observers. No significant differences between the thermal(More)
A total of 110 diaphanograms from women with breast carcinoma and 154 diaphanograms from women with benign breast disorders were quantitatively evaluated using the OSIRIS image scanner. Optical density values in the green and red spectral bands were recorded. The malignant and the benign groups, were statistically evaluated using linear discriminant(More)
Histologically classified carcinoma and benign breast disorder was present in 100 respectively 163 cases of symptomatic women. The results of diaphanography were correlated with those obtained by clinical examination, mammography and histology. A false negative diagnosis was made in 17 cases (15.5%) using diaphanography and in 13 cases (11.8%) using(More)
Histologically classified carcinoma was present in 110 breasts of 108 symptomatic women. The results of diaphanography (DPG) were correlated with those obtained by clinical examination (CE), mammography (M) and cytology (C). A tumour was palpable in 87 cases (79.1%). A false negative diagnosis was made in 17 cases (15.5%) using DPG, in 13 cases (11.8%)(More)
Avascular necrosis of the nipple is a serious complication of reduction mammaplasty with nipple transposition. A study was undertaken to measure the skin circulation in the nipple before, during and after this operation. In 14 patients undergoing a reduction mammaplasty according to the method of Strömbeck, the skin circulation was measured in 25 breasts(More)
Experiments have shown that the light recorded in diaphanography covers approximately the wavelength region of 645 to 900 nm. No significant change in image quality was noted by changing the camera distance between 10 and 25 cm and the light source aperture between 5 and 30 mm. Experiments using polarising filters indicated that the breast is optically(More)
