J Biomed Opt 2019 Feb;24(2):1-9

Oregon Health and Science University, Department of Biomedical Engineering, Portland, Oregon, United States.

Intraoperative margin assessment is imperative to cancer cure but is a continued challenge to successful surgery. Breast conserving surgery is a relevant example, where a cosmetically improved outcome is gained over mastectomy, but re-excision is required in >25  %   of cases due to positive or closely involved margins. Clinical translation of margin assessment modalities that must directly contact the patient or required administered contrast agents are time consuming and costly to move from bench to bedside.

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.
