Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in women today. Currently, mammography is the primary method of early detection. However, research has shown that many cases (10-30%) missed by mammography can be detected using breast MRI (BMRI). BMRI is more difficult to interpret than mammography because it generates significantly more data.(More)
PURPOSE Ultrasonography has the potential to accurately stage breast cancer with automated analysis to detect axillary lymph node metastasis. The aim of this study was to develop and test automated quantitative ultrasound image analysis of axillary lymph nodes for breast cancer staging. METHODS Following an IRB-approved HIPAA compliant protocol,(More)
PURPOSE The goal of this study is to develop a computerized method that identifies a specific axillary lymph node (ALN) seen on ultrasound (US) with its most likely corresponding node on breast MRI (BMRI). This goal is an important step in developing a preoperative non-invasive method for staging breast cancer on the basis of multi-modality imaging. (More)
