BACKGROUND Success of breast-conserving surgery (BCS) following neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) depends on accurate assessment of the initial lesion. We developed a new procedure (NIPR) in which initial naked magnetic resonance images are projected onto the skin before BCS. METHODS Thirty-five breast cancer patients underwent supine oblique MRI of the operative area. In 20 DCIS patients, the metallic clips were reproduced by projection on the skin using NIPR, and discrepancies between the… CONTINUE READING
