Systematic reviews as a "lens of evidence": determinants of benefits and harms of breast cancer screening.

Int J Cancer 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Section of Early Detection and Prevention, International Agency for Research on Cancer, 150 Cours Albert Thomas, 69372, Lyon, France.

This systematic review, stimulated by inconsistency in secondary evidence, reports the benefits and harms of breast cancer (BC) screening and their determinants according to systematic reviews. A systematic search, which identified 9,976 abstracts, led to the inclusion of 58 reviews. BC mortality reduction with screening mammography was 15-25% in trials and 28-56% in observational studies in all age groups, and the risk of stage III+ cancers was reduced for women older than 49 years.

Ductal carcinoma in situ of the breast: an update for the pathologist in the era of individualized risk assessment and tailored therapies.

Mod Pathol 2019 Feb 13. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Department of Anatomic Pathology, Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, University of Toronto Faculty of Medicine, E432-2075 Bayview Avenue, Toronto, ON, M4N 3M5, Canada.

Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) is a neoplastic proliferation of mammary ductal epithelial cells confined to the ductal-lobular system, and a non-obligate precursor of invasive disease. While there has been a significant increase in the diagnosis of DCIS in recent years due to uptake of mammography screening, there has been little change in the rate of invasive recurrence, indicating that a large proportion of patients diagnosed with DCIS will never develop invasive disease. The main issue for clinicians is how to reliably predict the prognosis of DCIS in order to individualize patient treatment, especially as treatment ranges from surveillance only, breast-conserving surgery only, to breast-conserving surgery plus radiotherapy and/or hormonal therapy, and mastectomy with or without radiotherapy.

Digital Mammography in Breast Cancer: Additive Value of Radiomics of Breast Parenchyma.

Radiology 2019 Feb 12:181113. Epub 2019 Feb 12.

From the Department of Radiology, University of Chicago, 5841 S Maryland Ave, Chicago, IL 60637.

Background Previous studies have suggested that breast parenchymal texture features may reflect the biologic risk factors associated with breast cancer development. Therefore, combining the characteristics of normal parenchyma from the contralateral breast with radiomic features of breast tumors may improve the accuracy of digital mammography in the diagnosis of breast cancer. Purpose To determine whether the addition of radiomic analysis of contralateral breast parenchyma to the characterization of breast lesions with digital mammography improves lesion classification over that with radiomic tumor features alone.

Redefining the sensitivity of screening mammography: A review.

Am J Surg 2019 Feb 2. Epub 2019 Feb 2.

Department of Surgery, Mercy Hospital, 4401 W. McAuley Blvd., Suite #1100, Mercy Hospital Coletta Building, Oklahoma City, OK, USA. Electronic address:

From its inception, screening mammography has enjoyed a perceived level of sensitivity that is inconsistent with available evidence. The original data that imparted erroneous beliefs about sensitivity were based on a variety of misleading definitions and approaches, such as the inclusion of palpable tumors, using the inverse of interval cancer rates (often tied to an arbitrary 12 month interval), and quoting prevalence screen sensitivity wherein tumors are larger than those found on incidence screens. This review addresses the background for the overestimation of mammographic sensitivity, and how a major adjustment in our thinking is overdue now that multi-modality imaging allows us to determine real time mammographic sensitivity.

A model study of 3-dimensional localization of breast tumors using piezoelectric fingers of different probe sizes.

Rev Sci Instrum 2019 Jan;90(1):015006

School of Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health Systems, Drexel University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19104, USA.

Mammography is the only Food and Drug Administration approved breast cancer screening method. The drawback of the tumor image in a mammogram is the lack of tumor depth information as it is only a 2-dimensional projection of a 3-dimensional (3D) tumor. In this work, we investigated 3D tumor imaging by assessing tumor depth information using a set of piezoelectric fingers (PEFs) with different probe sizes which were known to be capable of eliciting tissue elastic responses to different depths and tested it on model tumor tissues consisted of gelatin with suspended clay inclusions.

Change in health-related quality of life in older women after diagnosis of a small breast cancer.

Cancer 2019 Feb 1. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

Department of Surgery, Johns Hopkins Hospital and School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland.

Background: Screening mammography reduces breast cancer mortality at the cost of frequent false-positive results that lead to unnecessary medical procedures, and the treatment of indolent breast cancers that would never threaten life or health. Earlier diagnosis generally permits less disruptive treatment, but it is possible that even the diagnosis of a very small breast cancer could significantly adversely impact health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in older women.

Methods: The authors compared changes in HRQOL measured by either the Medical Outcomes Study 36-Item Short Form (SF-36) or the Veterans Rand 12-item Health Survey (VR-12) between 198 women diagnosed with in situ or invasive breast cancer measuring ≤1 cm and 36,814 matched controls using the National Cancer Institute's Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results cancer registry linked with the Medicare Health Outcomes Survey.

Derived mammographic masking measures based on simulated lesions predict the risk of interval cancer after controlling for known risk factors: a case-case analysis.

Med Phys 2019 Jan 29. Epub 2019 Jan 29.

University of Hawaii Cancer Center, Honolulu, HI, 96813, USA.

Purpose: Women with radiographically dense or texturally complex breasts are at increased risk for interval cancer, defined as cancers diagnosed after a normal screening examination. The purpose of this study was to create masking measures and apply them to identify interval risk in a population of women who experienced either screen-detected or interval cancers after controlling for breast density.

Methods: We examined full-field digital screening mammograms acquired from 2006 to 2015. Read More

MRI breast screening revisited.

J Magn Reson Imaging 2019 Jan 28. Epub 2019 Jan 28.

Department of Radiology, NYU School of Medicine, New York, New York, USA.

Contrast-enhanced breast MRI is a standard evidence-based component of supplemental screening in conjunction with mammography for higher-risk populations because of its high sensitivity for detecting breast cancer; the use of breast MRI for screening in high-risk populations is recommended in multiple national and international guidelines. The current MRI exam, however, is expensive relative to other screening technologies such as mammography, and relatively more time-intensive. Recent investigations have focused on techniques that have the potential for improving efficiency of the breast MRI exam, decreasing acquisition and reading times, without impacting diagnostic accuracy.

Abbreviated Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) for Breast Cancer Screening: Rationale, Concept, and Transfer to Clinical Practice.

Annu Rev Med 2019 Jan;70:501-519

Department of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology, RWTH Aachen University, 52074 Aachen, Germany; email:

Given the increasing understanding of cancer as a heterogeneous group of diseases, detection methods should offer a sensitivity profile that ensures perfect sensitivity for biologically important cancers while screening out self-limiting pseudocancers. However, mammographic screening is biased toward detection of ductal carcinoma in situ and slowly growing cancers-and thus frequently fails to detect biologically aggressive cancers. This explains the persistently high rates of interval cancers and high rates of breast cancer mortality observed in spite of decades of mammographic screening. Read More

Preoperative imaging for breast conservation surgery-do we need more than conventional imaging for local disease assessment?

Authors:
Eugene Ong

Gland Surg 2018 Dec;7(6):554-559

Diagnostic Radiology, Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital, Singapore.

Breast conservation surgery (BCS) is offered for early breast cancer. Conventional imaging with mammography and ultrasound would have been performed prior to surgery. This article considers other imaging modalities available [such as 3D tomosynthesis, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), contrast-enhanced spectral mammography, positron emission mammography (PEM), breast-specific gamma imaging (BSGI) and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT)] and discusses the evidence for these in terms of diagnostic accuracy and clinical outcomes.

Inflammatory breast cancer: no longer an absolute contraindication for breast conservation surgery following good response to neoadjuvant therapy.

Gland Surg 2018 Dec;7(6):520-524

Edinburgh Breast Unit, NHS Lothian, Western General Hospital, Edinburgh, UK.

Inflammatory breast cancer (IBC) is a rare form of breast cancer characterised by an erythematous swollen breast with extensive oedema and has in the past been associated with a very poor prognosis. After diagnosis by core biopsy of the cancer and any involved nodes patients in the Edinburgh Breast Unit (EBU) are primarily managed with neoadjuvant systemic therapy-chemotherapy or endocrine therapy. If the cancer is localised to one or a few well defined lesions then each of these lesions together with the lowest involved node are clipped. Read More
