Prognostic value of histopathological DCIS features in a large-scale international interrater reliability study.

Breast Cancer Res Treat 2020 Oct 30;183(3):759-770. Epub 2020 Jul 30.

Division of Psychosocial Research and Epidemiology, Netherlands Cancer Institute - Antoni van Leeuwenhoek, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Purpose: For optimal management of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), reproducible histopathological assessment is essential to distinguish low-risk from high-risk DCIS. Therefore, we analyzed interrater reliability of histopathological DCIS features and assessed their associations with subsequent ipsilateral invasive breast cancer (iIBC) risk.

Methods: Using a case-cohort design, reliability was assessed in a population-based, nationwide cohort of 2767 women with screen-detected DCIS diagnosed between 1993 and 2004, treated by breast-conserving surgery with/without radiotherapy (BCS ± RT) using Krippendorff's alpha (KA) and Gwet's AC2 (GAC2).

Cystic Degeneration of Hepatocellular Carcinoma Mimicking Mucinous Cystic Neoplasm.

Korean J Gastroenterol 2019 May;73(5):303-307

Departments of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Inje University Busan Paik Hospital, Inje University College of Medicine, Busan, Korea.

Spontaneous regression of tumors is an extremely rare event in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) with only a few reports available. With the accumulation of clinical information and tumor immunogenetics, several mechanisms for the cystic changes of HCC have been suggested, including arterial thrombosis, inflammation, and rapid tumor growth. This paper reports an uncommon case of the partial regression of HCC, which was initially misdiagnosed as a mucinous cystic neoplasm of the liver due to the unusual radiologic findings. Read More

Cancer Imaging 2018 Nov 26;18(1):44. Epub 2018 Nov 26.

Magnetic Detection & Imaging, University of Twente, Drienerlolaan 5, 7522 NB, Enschede, Netherlands.

Purpose: To compare diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), intravoxel incoherent motion (IVIM), and tri-exponential models of the diffusion magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) signal for the characterization of renal lesions in relationship to histopathological findings.

Methods: Sixteen patients planned to undergo nephrectomy for kidney tumour were scanned before surgery at 3 T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), with T-weighted imaging, DTI and diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) using ten b-values. DTI parameters (mean diffusivity [MD] and fractional anisotropy [FA]) were obtained by iterative weighted linear least squared fitting of the DTI data and bi-, and tri-exponential fit parameters (D, fand D, ff) using a nonlinear fit of the multiple b-value DWI data.
