Intratumoral heterogeneity within individual breast tumors is a well-known phenomenon that may contribute to drug resistance. This heterogeneity is dependent on several factors, such as types of oncogenic drivers and tumor precursor cells. The purpose of our study was to engineer a mouse mammary tumor model with intratumoral heterogeneity by using defined(More)
INTRODUCTION Mammography is the most basic modality in breast cancer imaging. However, the overlap of breast tissue depicted on conventional two-dimensional mammography (2DMMG) may create significant obstacles to detecting abnormalities, especially in dense or heterogeneously dense breasts. In three-dimensional digital breast tomosynthesis (3DBT),(More)
AIM To assess magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound (US) evaluation of invasive lobular carcinoma after primary systemic therapy compared to the primary surgery group. METHODS A total of 218 breasts with invasive lobular carcinoma (ILC), which were diagnosed by core needle biopsy and underwent surgery between 2004 and 2010 in St. Luke's(More)
Phyllodes tumors (PTs) are rare fibroepithelial tumors of the breast with epithelial and stromal components, and surgical resection is the standard and only available treatment for malignant PTs. To provide a better understanding of these tumors, we developed mouse models that recapitulate the pathological and clinical properties of human malignant PTs.(More)
