Although numerous studies have outlined the benefits of contrast material-enhanced magnetic resonance (MR) imaging for the detection of breast parenchymal findings, the assessment of lesions of the skin and superficial tissue at breast MR imaging has largely been overlooked. Such lesions, both benign and malignant, are commonly encountered at breast MR(More)
We present a study of the bilateral symmetry of human breast hemoglobin saturation maps measured with a broadband optical mammography instrument. We have imaged 21 patients with unilateral breast cancer, 32 patients with unilateral benign lesions, and 27 healthy patients. An image registration process was applied to the bilateral hemoglobin saturation (SO 2(More)
Although primary breast cancer is the most common malignancy identified by breast imaging, extramammary malignancies may also rarely be encountered. These uncommon lesions may reflect primary neoplasms of nonmammary origin as well as secondary metastatic lesions, and include lymphoma, melanoma, neuroendocrine tumors, gastrointestinal tract malignancies, and(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES We present an optical mammography study that aims to develop quantitative measures of pathologic response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) in patients with breast cancer. Such quantitative measures are based on the concentrations of oxyhemoglobin ([HbO2]), deoxyhemoglobin ([Hb]), total hemoglobin ([HbT]), and hemoglobin saturation(More)
