Anti-estrogen therapy has been shown to reduce mammographic breast density (MD). We hypothesized that a short-term change in breast density may be a surrogate biomarker predicting response to adjuvant endocrine therapy (ET) in breast cancer. We analyzed data for 1,065 estrogen receptor (ER)-positive breast cancer patients who underwent surgery between 2003(More)
PURPOSE We evaluated the efficacy of breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for detecting additional malignancies in breast cancer patients newly diagnosed by breast ultrasonography and mammography. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the records of 1,038 breast cancer patients who underwent preoperative mammography, bilateral breast ultrasonography, and(More)
After publication of their article [1], the authors noted an error under the section " Density change and recurrence-free survival ". Where it currently reads " After adjusting for confounding factors, patients with MDRR ≥ 15% had a higher risk of recurrence than patients with MDRR <15% (HR 1.60, 95% CI 1.02 to 2.50, P = 0.041) (Additional fi le 1, Table(More)
PURPOSE The need for surgical excision in patients with ultrasound-guided core needle biopsy (CNB)-diagnosed atypical ductal hyperplasia (ADH) remains an issue of debate. The present study sought to validate a scoring system (the U score, for underestimation) that we have previously developed for predicting malignancy in CNB-diagnosed ADH. METHODS The(More)
