Development of a mechatronic guidance system for targeted ultrasound-guided biopsy under high-resolution positron emission mammography localization.

Med Phys 2021 Apr 2;48(4):1859-1873. Epub 2021 Mar 2.

Department of Medical Biophysics, Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry, Western University, London, Ontario, N6A 3K7, Canada.

Purpose: Image-guided needle biopsy of small, detectable lesions is crucial for early-stage diagnosis, treatment planning, and management of breast cancer. High-resolution positron emission mammography (PEM) is a dedicated functional imaging modality that can detect breast cancer independent of breast tissue density, but anatomical context and real-time needle visualization are not yet available to guide biopsy. We propose a mechatronic guidance system integrating an ultrasound (US)-guided core-needle biopsy (CNB) with high-resolution PEM localization to improve the spatial sampling of breast lesions.

Recent Progress for the Techniques of MRI-Guided Breast Interventions and their applications on Surgical Strategy.

J Cancer 2020 20;11(16):4671-4682. Epub 2020 May 20.

Department of Breast Surgical Oncology, National Cancer Center/National Clinical Research Center for Cancer/Cancer Hospital, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences and Peking Union Medical College, Beijing, 100021, China.

With a high sensitivity of breast lesions, MRI can detect suspicious lesions which are occult in traditional breast examination equipment. However, the lower and variable specificity of MRI makes the MRI-guided intervention, including biopsies and localizations, necessary before surgery, especially for patients who need the treatment of breast-conserving surgery (BCS). MRI techniques and patient preparation should be first carefully considered before the intervention to avoid lengthening the procedure time and compromising targeting accuracy. Read More
