Early Detection of Ductal Breast Cancer: The Diagnostic Procedure for Pathological Discharge from the Nipple
Pathologic discharge from the nipple may be the only symptom of an early stage of carcinoma. Galactography is then the diagnostic method of choice to locate intraductal, nonpalpable lesions. TheExpand
Radiation exposure of the breast in film- and xero-mammography.
In addition to other advantages, xeoradiography, compared with film-mammography, seems to result in a lower radiation dosage to the breast. In order to get some valid information concerning thisExpand
[Investigation of the exposure to radiation of the embryo/fetus in the course of radiographic examinations during pregnancy 1st communication: Tissue-air ratios for X-rays with tube voltages between
A relatively important radiation dose delivered to the embryo (fetus) is a decisive criterion, if interruption of pregnancy is considered for radiation-hygienic reasons. Several methods of assessmentExpand
[Microcalcifications on the mammaogram, surgical clarification and histologic findings. Concerning the problem of the diagnosis of occult carcinoma of the breast (author's transl)].
Microcalcifications on the mammogram could be an important indication for an occult carcinoma. Up until 31 December 1976, we intentionally removed such grouped microcalcifications 218 times in aExpand
[Stars in mammography--cancers and radial scars (author's transl)].
Among 50 little starlike shadows in about 13,500 mammograms during the years 1973-1975 there were seven pictures proved histologically not to be cancers but "radial scars". We found no X-ray featuresExpand
[Single-view mammography (author's transl)].
Single-view mammography was performed in 12123 women (22321 pictures) so that the entire breast tissue was visualised. In 223 patients the results were compared with histological findings obtainedExpand
Early Detection of Ductal Breast Cancer: The Diagnostic Procedure for Grouped Microcalcifications
Mammography and xeroradiography for grouped microcalcifications are considered the most effective diagnostic methods to detect occult breast carcinoma. Radiography must direct the surgeon to exciseExpand
