OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the usefulness of MRI of the breast in cases in which mammographic or sonographic findings are inconclusive. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively reviewed images from 115 MRI examinations of the breast performed from 1999 to 2005 for the indication of problem-solving for inconclusive findings on a(More)
BACKGROUND Members of the ezrin-radixin-moesin (ERM) protein family regulate cellular shape, motility, and proliferation and potentially influence ability to metastasize. We investigated the correlation between ERM subcellular localization and survival in patients with squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) METHODS: Tissue microarrays (TMAs) were constructed from(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine the rate, characteristics, and outcomes of discordant MRI-guided vacuum-assisted biopsy (VAB) in women with suspected breast cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS This retrospective study reviewed 1314 MRI-guided VABs performed in 1211 women between 2007 and 2013 and yielded 25 discordant results in 24 women.(More)
OBJECTIVE The purposes of this study were to determine the frequency of underestimation of high-risk lesions at MRI-guided 9-gauge vacuum-assisted breast biopsy and to determine the imaging and demographic characteristics predictive of lesion upgrade after surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively reviewed consecutively detected lesions that were(More)
We describe a case of a 70-year-old man with Stage IV Colon Cancer. His cancer was diagnosed in 1999 and he subsequently underwent rectosigmoid resection, systemic chemotherapy and two partial liver resections for metastatic disease. Seven months prior to admission, he had a hepatic artery infusion device implanted. His last infusion with chemotherapy had(More)
