OBJECTIVE This retrospective study systematically compared mammographic density with histology in women receiving or not receiving menopausal hormone therapy (HT). DESIGN This study was approved by the institutional review board. Twenty-eight postmenopausal women using HT were matched with 28 postmenopausal women not using HT at the time of breast cancer(More)
Tonometered whole-blood and plasma specimens were tested in plastic and glass syringes to determine whether clinically significant changes in gas tensions occur during sample storage. When whole blood was tonometered with 60 and 100 mL/L (6% and 10%) oxygen and then stored for 30 min in iced plastic syringes, the pO2 of the samples remained stable (mean(More)
Increased mammographic breast density is a moderate independent risk factor for breast cancer, with findings of published studies in which quantitative methods of assessment were used showing a positive association. Breast density may be quantified by using visual assessment or planimetry. Although the category definitions vary, the odds ratio for(More)
Mammography is the recommended method for breast cancer screening of women in the general population. However, mammography alone does not perform as well as mammography plus supplemental screening in high-risk women. Therefore, supplemental screening with MRI or ultrasound is recommended in selected high-risk populations. Screening breast MRI is recommended(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES Quantitative criteria for the Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS) mammographic density categories have recently been defined as <25% dense for almost entirely fatty, 25%-50% dense for scattered fibroglandular densities, 51%-75% for heterogeneously dense, and >75% dense for the extremely dense category. The purpose of(More)
A palpable breast mass is one of the most common presenting features of breast carcinoma. However, the clinical features are frequently nonspecific. Imaging performed before biopsy is helpful in characterizing the nature of the mass. For women with clinically detected breast masses, the vast majority will require evaluation with ultrasound. Diagnostic(More)
OBJECTIVES To define the clinical, serological, histological and immunogenetic features of patients with scleroderma and ANCA-associated vasculitis (AAV). METHODS We examined a clinical database of 2,200 patients with either limited or diffuse cutaneous systemic sclerosis (SSc). Patients with a confirmed diagnosis of vasculitis who were ANCA positive with(More)
From the analysis of various urinary constituents and the estimation of urinary saturation of stone-forming salts, it is now possible to identify risk factors responsible for or contributing to stone formation. Metabolic factors included calcium, oxalate, uric acid, citrate and pH. Environmental factors were total volume, sodium, sulfate, phosphate and(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of the study is to evaluate the prevalence of occult breast carcinoma in surgical breast biopsies performed on nonpalpable breast lesions diagnosed initially as atypical ductal hyperplasia (ADH) by core needle biopsy. BACKGROUND Atypical ductal hyperplasia is a lesion with significant malignant potential. Some authors note that ADH(More)
