Cureus 2020 May 25;12(5):e8277. Epub 2020 May 25.

Radiology, University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston, USA.

Due to the lower rate of breast cancer in men compared to women, there are fewer studies on which to base the treatment of a male patient with breast cancer; and this is further complicated when the patient is part of the elderly population. We report the case of an 81-year-old male who came in for imaging of pulmonary nodules and had an incidental finding of abnormal growth in the breast. Further imaging was performed, and biopsy was completed, confirming invasive ductal carcinoma. 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

Pilomatrixoma, a Rare Mimicker of Male Breast Cancer.

J Clin Imaging Sci 2019 6;9:46. Epub 2019 Nov 6.

Departments of Radiology, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, South Carolina, USA.

Pilomatrixoma or calcifying epithelioma of Malherbe is a benign skin tumor arising from the hair follicle; breast occurrence is considered a rarity. Clinically presenting as a palpable abnormality and with both benign and malignant mammographic and sonographic features, it can be easily misdiagnosed as a breast neoplasm. We report a very rare case of pilomatrixoma of the male breast in a 36-year-old male presenting with a firm, superficial nodule in the upper outer quadrant. Read More

Limited role of DWI with apparent diffusion coefficient mapping in breast lesions presenting as non-mass enhancement on dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI.

Breast Cancer Res 2019 12 4;21(1):136. Epub 2019 Dec 4.

Department of Radiology, Breast Imaging Service, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Suite 705, 300 E 66th Street, New York, NY, 10065, USA.

Background: Available data proving the value of DWI for breast cancer diagnosis is mainly for enhancing masses; DWI may be less sensitive and specific in non-mass enhancement (NME) lesions. The objective of this study was to assess the diagnostic accuracy of DWI using different ROI measurement approaches and ADC metrics in breast lesions presenting as NME lesions on dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE) MRI.

Methods: In this retrospective study, 95 patients who underwent multiparametric MRI with DCE and DWI from September 2007 to July 2013 and who were diagnosed with a suspicious NME (BI-RADS 4/5) were included. Read More

Sericin grafted multifunctional curcumin loaded fluorinated graphene oxide nanomedicines with charge switching properties for effective cancer cell targeting.

Int J Pharm 2019 Dec 31;572:118791. Epub 2019 Oct 31.

Technical University of Denmark, Department of Health Technology, Center for Intestinal Absorption and Transport of Biopharmaceuticals, 2800 Kgs. Lyngby, Denmark.

Fluorinated graphene has recently gained much attention for cancer drug delivery, owing to its peculiar properties including high electronegativity difference, magnetic resonance imaging contrast agent, and the photothermal effect. However, the hydrophobic nature of fluorinated graphene greatly hinders its application as a biological material. Herein, a novel green method is reported for synthesis of a pH-sensitive charge-reversal and water-soluble fluorinated graphene oxide, modified with polyethyleneimine anchored to sericin-polypeptide (FPS).

Targeting Novel Sodium Iodide Symporter Interactors ADP-Ribosylation Factor 4 and Valosin-Containing Protein Enhances Radioiodine Uptake.

Cancer Res 2020 01 31;80(1):102-115. Epub 2019 Oct 31.

Institute of Metabolism and Systems Research, University of Birmingham, Birmingham, United Kingdom.

The sodium iodide symporter (NIS) is required for iodide uptake, which facilitates thyroid hormone biosynthesis. NIS has been exploited for over 75 years in ablative radioiodine (RAI) treatment of thyroid cancer, where its ability to transport radioisotopes depends on its localization to the plasma membrane. The advent of NIS-based imaging and theranostic strategies in other malignancies and disease modalities has recently increased the clinical importance of NIS. Read More

Mechanically-assisted and non-invasive ventilation for radiation therapy: A safe technique to regularize and modulate internal tumour motion.

Radiother Oncol 2019 12 22;141:283-291. Epub 2019 Oct 22.

Université Catholique de Louvain, Institut de Recherche Expérimentale et Clinique (IREC), Center of Molecular Imaging, Radiotherapy and Oncology (MIRO), Brussels, Belgium; Cliniques Universitaires Saint Luc, Department of Radiation Oncology, Brussels, Belgium.

Background And Purpose: Current motion mitigation strategies, like margins, gating, and tracking, deal with geometrical uncertainties in the tumour position, induced by breathing during radiotherapy (RT). However, they often overlook motion variability in amplitude, respiratory rate, or baseline position, when breathing spontaneously. Consequently, this may negatively affect the delivered dose conformality in comparison to the plan. Read More
