PURPOSE Vincristine, etoposide, prednisone, and doxorubicin (OEPA)-cyclophosphamide, vincristine, prednisone, and dacarbazine (COPDAC) is derived from standard vincristine, procarbazine, prednisone, and doxorubicin (OPPA)-cyclophosphamide, vincristine, procarbazine, and prednisone (COPP) chemotherapy by replacing procarbazine with etoposide and dacarbazine(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES Most secondary intramammary tumors occur as metastatic involvement from the contralateral breast. Breast metastases (BM) from nonmammary malignancies are very rare. The aims of this study were to estimate retrospectively the prevalence of BM from nonmammary malignancies and to describe their radiologic appearance. MATERIALS AND(More)
PURPOSE Currently, a routine bone marrow biopsy (BMB) is performed to detect bone marrow (BM) involvement in pediatric Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL) stage greater than IIA. [(18)F]fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) is increasingly used for the initial staging of HL. The value of using FDG-PET to detect BM involvement has not been(More)
BACKGROUND Primary breast sarcoma is very rare. Most reports regarding sarcoma of the breast are clinical observations or pathological series and provide either no or inconstant radiological information. Radiological publications consist predominantly of isolated case reports or small series. PURPOSE To determine the prevalence, clinical signs, and(More)
AIMS It has been recommended that the histopathology results of core biopsies of the breast are categorized according to the B-categorization scheme. We measured the interobserver variability of the B-categorization of core biopsies of the breast. METHODS AND RESULTS Core biopsies were taken among 765 women at the University of Halle between 2006 and(More)
As high percentage of mammographic densities complicates the assessment of imaging findings, mammographic density may influence the histopathological evaluation of core-biopsies of the breast. We measured the influence of mammographic density on the inter-observer variability of histopathological findings of breast biopsies. Histological slides of 695 women(More)
Um das Hodenvolumen von Kindern und Jugendlichen im klinischen Alltag richtig bewerten und frühzeitig Störungen der Hodenentwicklung ermitteln zu können, werden Referenzwerttabellen des Hodenvolumens benötigt. Ziel dieser prospektiven Querschnittsstudie war die Erstellung einer Referenzwerttabellen des Hodenvolumens in Abhängigkeit vom Alter sowie erstmalig(More)
AIMS Because of the introduction of mammography screening programmes in Europe, the number of breast biopsies performed is increasing. We investigated the influence of immunohistochemistry (IHC) on the final diagnosis of breast biopsies by comparing the primary diagnoses (based on the results of haematoxylin and eosin staining only) with the final diagnoses(More)
