OBJECTIVE The breast is highly hormonally sensitive especially to the sex steroid hormone estrogen. Both physiological and iatrogenic steroid hormone modifications could affect how the breast tissue may appear in breast imaging techniques. We hypothesized that estrogen deprivation therapy could reduce breast nonspecific enhancement on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). METHODS This study was a prospective pilot phase II clinical trial. The study was approved by Health Canada and the… CONTINUE READING
