A rare case of syringocystadenocarcinoma papilliferum of the breast: An institutional retrospective case review and brief literature review.

J Cutan Pathol 2021 Jun 5. Epub 2021 Jun 5.

Department of Breast Pathology, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio, USA.

Syringocystadenocarcinoma papilliferum (SCACP) is a rare cutaneous adnexal tumor thought to originate from its benign counterpart, syringocystadenoma papilliferum. These tumors are predominantly located on the head and neck with their location on the breast extraordinarily reported; mammary localization poses a great diagnostic dilemma to the practicing pathologist. Herein, we report an unusual case of an 85-year-old woman with an outside diagnosis on a core needle biopsy of metaplastic mammary carcinoma. Read More

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.

Tomosynthesis-guided breast and axillary localizations: tips and tricks.

Br J Radiol 2020 Oct 24;93(1114):20200495. Epub 2020 Jul 24.

Department of Radiology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, United States.

As tomosynthesis is rapidly adopted by breast imaging practices, tomosynthesis-guided procedures are increasingly being performed. Tomosynthesis-guided needle localizations are feasible and efficient and allow for localization of tomosynthesis-only findings or one-view findings, which may be difficult to localize under standard digital mammography. In this review, we describe our step-by-step approach for performing tomosynthesis-guided localizations of the breast and axilla using a standard tomosynthesis unit. Read More

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

Step by step: Planning a needle localization procedure.

Clin Imaging 2020 Mar 12;60(1):100-108. Epub 2019 Dec 12.

The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Department of Breast Imaging, 1155 Pressler, Unit 1350, CPB 5.3208, Houston, TX 77030, USA.

In patients with nonpalpable early-stage breast cancer eligible for breast conservation surgery (BCS), wire-guided localization (WGL) is widely accepted as a standard technique for preoperative image-guided lesion localization. In preparation for this procedure, lesion location, size, type and configuration play important roles in preoperative localization planning. Successful preoperative planning requires review of all pertinent imaging studies, imaging reports and pathology reports, with special attention to pre- and post-biopsy imaging and evaluation of the targeted lesions and the type and the position of the marker clips.
