To assess whether vacuum-assisted excision (VAE) is a safe alternative to surgery in the treatment of breast lesions of uncertain malignant potential (B3) in which no atypia is present on needle core biopsy (NCB). Forty two VAE procedures were performed for B3 lesions. Twenty four (57%) were papillary lesions. Eighteen (43%) were radial scars. Two patients(More)
AIM To assess the diagnostic accuracy of contrast-enhanced spectral mammography (CESM), and gauge its "added value" in the symptomatic setting. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective multi-reader review of 100 consecutive CESM examinations was performed. Anonymised low-energy (LE) images were reviewed and given a score for malignancy. At least 3 weeks(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the value of computed tomography (CT) staging of the chest, abdomen and pelvis in patients with poor prognostic tumours and no symptoms of metastatic disease in those who have undergone primary surgical management for the treatment of breast cancer. Patients who had primary operable invasive breast cancer treated by(More)
AIMS To determine the frequency and pattern of metastatic disease as detected by staging computed tomography in patients presenting with locally advanced primary breast cancer, comparing non-inflammatory and inflammatory subtypes. MATERIALS AND METHODS Patients who underwent staging computed tomography for locally advanced breast cancer were identified(More)

OBJECTIVE To compare the accuracy of standard supplementary views and GE digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) for assessment of soft-tissue mammographic abnormalities. METHODS Women recalled for further assessment of soft-tissue abnormalities were recruited and received standard supplementary views (typically spot compression views) and two-view GE DBT. The(More)

AIMS To assess the usefulness of computed tomography of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis (CTCAP) in the detection of metastatic disease in patients presenting with loco-regional recurrence of breast cancer, and to identify subgroups particularly likely to have metastases. MATERIALS AND METHODS Over a 32-month period, 63 patients with 65 recurrences(More)
