Breast conserving therapy (BCT) has turned out to be the standard procedure for the treatment of breast cancer. While the risk of local recurrences was reported as 1-2% or more per year after treatment, follow-up including clinical examination, mammography and even sonography is of priority. This study was performed to assess the efficacy of contrast-enhanced dynamic magnetic resonance tomography (NMR) for the diagnosis of local recurrences after breast conserving therapy, compared to palpation… CONTINUE READING
