R J Bell

Climacteric 2020 Jul 8:1-6. Epub 2020 Jul 8.

Women's Health Research Program, School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine, Monash University, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

Mammographic density, which is determined by the relative amounts of fibroglandular tissue and fat in the breast, varies between women. Mammographic density is associated with a range of factors, including age and body mass index. The description of mammographic density has been transformed by the digitalization of mammography, which has allowed automation of the assessment of mammographic density, rather than using visual inspection by a radiologist.

Ductal carcinoma in situ on digital mammography versus digital breast tomosynthesis: rates and predictors of pathologic upgrade.

Eur Radiol 2020 Jun 26. Epub 2020 Jun 26.

Department of Radiology, Division of Breast Imaging, Massachusetts General Hospital, 55 Fruit Street, WAC 240, Boston, MA, 02114, USA.

Objectives: To compare upgrade rates of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) on digital mammography (DM) versus digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) and identify patient, imaging, and pathological features associated with upgrade risk.

Methods: A retrospective review was performed of 318 women (mean 59 years, range 37-89) with screening-detected DCIS from 2007 to 2011 (DM group) and from 2013 to 2016 (DBT group). Comparisons made between DM and DBT groups using the unpaired t test and chi-square test include detection rates of DCIS, upgrade rates to invasive cancer, and pathological features of DCIS and upgraded cases.

Flexible ultrasonic array for breast-cancer diagnosis based on a self-shape-estimation algorithm.

Ultrasonics 2020 Jun 17;108:106199. Epub 2020 Jun 17.

Key Lab of Nondestructive Testing, Ministry of Education, Nanchang Hangkong University, Nanchang 330063, China.

Breast cancer is a very common malignant tumour that typically occurs in women aged 35-70 years (accounting for 85% of patients). Recently, it has been appearing in younger women as well. Traditional ultrasonic transducers usually use a fixed array, which avoids the radiation from mammography, has a low cost, and can be used for repeated testing. Read More

Mammographic Breast Density and Urbanization: Interactions with BMI, Environmental, Lifestyle, and Other Patient Factors.

Diagnostics (Basel) 2020 Jun 20;10(6). Epub 2020 Jun 20.

Department of Radiology, Breast Imaging Service, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, NY 10065, USA.

Mammographic breast density (MBD) is an important imaging biomarker of breast cancer risk, but it has been suggested that increased MBD is not a genuine finding once corrected for age and body mass index (BMI). This study examined the association of various factors, including both residing in and working in the urban setting, with MBD. Questionnaires were completed by 1144 women attending for mammography at the London Breast Institute in 2012-2013. Read More

Imaging of male breast disease: the good, the bad and the ugly - A pictorial review.

Clin Imaging 2020 Jun 17;68:45-56. Epub 2020 Jun 17.

Grupo Fleury, São Paulo, Brazil; Hospital São Paulo, Universidade Federal de São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil.

The male breast is affected by a broad spectrum of conditions, ranging from benign to malignant, many of which are similar to those occurring in its female counterpart. Despite the challenge motivated by different imaging characteristic features, correct imaging interpretation in male breast disease may aid at differentiation between benign and suspected conditions, narrow the differential diagnosis and guide subsequent management. The purpose of this review is to showcase a wide array of male breast diseases, discuss their imaging presentations and key features for diagnosis. Read More
