The sensitivity, specificity and accuracy of MRI in detecting breast cancer recurrence were analyzed. 40 patients undergoing breast conserving therapy were studied with MRI. Cytohistologic examinations of suspected local recurrence were carried out. In these patients, the clinical, mammographic and sonographic characteristics of local recurrence were nonspecific or dubious. All patients were examined at least 1 year after completion of radiation therapy. Qualitative and quantitative information… CONTINUE READING
