METHODS Women who underwent axillary dissection for TC in the Western Sydney area (1984--1995) were identified retrospectively through a search of computerized records. A centralized pathology review was performed(More)
The fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNA) from 12 mammographically detected, histologically confirmed radial scar/complex sclerosing lesions (RS/CSL) and their corresponding mammography were reviewed. Six aspirates were obtained by palpation, four by ultrasound guidance, and two by stereotactic guidance. Of the eight lesions with sufficient material five(More)
We describe a case of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) occurring in a fibroadenoma diagnosed by fine needle aspiration (FNA) cytology. The cytological features comprised a small population of pleomorphic cells admixed with a dominant population of bland epithelial cells showing features consistent with those of a fibroadenoma. Excision biopsy confirmed the(More)
To measure the quality of pathology reporting of breast cancer and establish a baseline against which future changes can be measured, we audited item completeness in breast cancer reports in Australia in 1995 before the release of specific recommendations from the Australian Cancer Network. Tumour type and size were given in reports of invasive breast(More)
