BACKGROUND Electrical impedance scanning (EIS) measures changes in breast tissue associated with breast cancer (Br-Ca) development. The T-Scan(tm2000 (ED is designed to use EIS to identify women ages 30-39 with elevated risk of breast cancer (i.e., T-Scan+ women). AIM To estimate the relative probability of breast cancer in a T-Scan+ woman compared to a(More)
Spinal cord involvement is uncommon in giant cell arteritis (GCA) and spinal cord infarction is extremely rare. We describe an 80-year-old man with active GCA who developed sudden paraplegia and dissociated sensory loss while receiving steroid treatment. Magnetic resonance imaging showed high signal abnormality consistent with spinal cord infarction in the(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the frequency and clinical significance of unexpected focal 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) uptake localized by PET/CT within the breast. The files of 4,038 consecutive female cancer patients referred for FDG PET/CT over a period of 74 months were retrospectively reviewed. Patients with breast cancer were excluded from the(More)
Salmonella is the most commonly reported cause of food-borne outbreaks of gastroenteritis. We report a case of a severe and toxic form of enteritis caused by Salmonella enteritidis. Findings of colonoscopy, an upper G1 tract series, and small bowel follow-through were consistent with those of inflammatory bowel disease, but the enteritis was self-limited,(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the feasibility and patient satisfaction with electrical impedance scanning (EIS) for early detection of breast cancer in young women. METHODS Women undergoing screening clinical breast examination, imaging, or biopsy were eligible for EIS examination with T-Scan 2000ED (Mirabel Medical Systems, Austin, TX). Multiple logistic(More)
Certain benign breast diseases are considered to be precursors of invasive breast cancer. Currently available techniques for diagnosing benign breast conditions lack accuracy. The purpose of this study was to deliver a proof-of-concept for a novel method that is based on breath testing to identify breast cancer precursors. Within this context, the authors(More)
One way to improve the cost-benefit ratio for breast cancer screening in younger women is to identify those at high-risk of breast cancer and manage them in an optimal manner. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the sensitivity and specificity of Electrical Impedance Scanning (EIS) for identifying young women who are at risk for having breast cancer(More)

The feasibility of implementing image subtraction in through-transmission breast sonography was examined. Acoustic mammograms of women with suspicious findings were obtained using through-transmission imaging. Precontrast images were initially acquired. Then a perflutren liquid microsphere contrast agent solution was injected intravenously, and new sets of(More)
