BACKGROUND In this study, we report a breast-conserving surgery (BCS) approach that uses projection and reproduction techniques of breast MRI obtained in the surgical position to the breast surface in patients with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) of the breast. STUDY DESIGN Between February 2005 and January 2007, a total of 104 patients with operable breast cancer at our hospital had surgical-position breast MRI examinations. The 24 patients with relatively localized DCIS received BCS using… CONTINUE READING
