One of the major factors limiting the staging accuracy of conventional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for prostatic carcinoma, is the similarity in signal intensity between tumor and coexisting benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). As neovascularity is an independent indicator of pathological state, dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI may yield additional(More)
The branching fractions of the exclusive decays B0-->K(*0)gamma and B+-->K(*+)gamma are measured from a sample of (22.74+/-0.36)x10(6) BB decays collected with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric e(+)e(-) collider. We find B (B0-->K(*0)gamma) = [4.23+/-0.40(stat)+/-0.22(syst)]x10(-5), B(B+-->K(*+)gamma) = [3.83+/-0.62(stat)+/-0.22(syst)]x10(-5) and(More)
The purpose of this work is to assess the additional benefit of MRI-based morphology and quantification of contrast enhancement in the differential diagnosis of sub-1cm breast lesions. Forty-three women with suspected breast cancer were examined using X-ray mammography, ultrasound mammography, and MRI. Dynamic contrast imaging was performed and relative(More)
In this report we describe the MR imaging findings, including dynamic data, in a patient with primary non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of the breast. The precontrast T1-weighted sequence showed several hypointense, ill-defined, non-spiculated masses. In the T2-weighted images the masses showed a hyperintense halo. In the dynamic and postcontrast sequences all lesions(More)
AIMS Infiltrating Lobular Carcinoma (ILC) accounts for 5-10% of all breast cancers and is associated with subtle clinical and mammographic changes. It is also frequently multifocal and traditional diagnostic methods are unable to reliably detect this preoperatively. The aim of the study was to evaluate the efficacy of current imaging modalities compared(More)
AIMS This study aimed to examine the feasibility of utilizing dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI (DCE-MRI) of the breast for the planning of surgical intervention following neoadjuvant therapy for locally advanced breast cancer (LABC). METHODS Following their neoadjuvant therapy, women with LABC were followed-up by DCE-MRI in addition to clinical examination(More)
Dynamic Contrast Enhanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging (DCE-MRI) is an effective diagnostic modality for symptomatic breast disease. However, its role in evaluating clinically occult disease associated with mammographically detected microcalcification remains unclear. Women recalled following screening mammography with microcalcification had DCE-MRI(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine whether the addition of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to current patient evaluation by triple assessment would aid tumour localisation within the breast and thus reduce the reoperation rate in women with primary breast tumours who are scheduled for wide local excision (WLE), and to assess whether the addition of MRI would be(More)
The presence and distribution of basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) and transforming growth factor beta 1 in benign and malignant human breast tissue were determined by immunohistochemistry and immunoblotting. Peroxidase staining of biopsy specimens using a polyclonal antibody to amino acids 1-24 of bFGF and a monoclonal antibody to whole recombinant(More)
The current pathway for men suspected of having prostate cancer [transrectal biopsy, followed in some cases by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for staging] results in over-diagnosis of insignificant tumours, and systematically misses disease in the anterior prostate. Multiparametric MRI has the potential to change this pathway, and if performed before(More)
