Article
Full-text available
The aim of this study was to combine breast MRI-derived biomarkers with clinical-pathological parameters to identify patients who truly need an Oncotype DX Breast Recurrence Score® (ODXRS) genomic assay, currently used to predict the benefit of adjuvant chemotherapy in ER-positive/HER2-negative early breast cancer, with the ultimate goal of customi...

Purpose To investigate the association between body composition parameters, sarcopenia, obesity and prognosis in patients with metastatic ER+/HER2- breast cancer under therapy with cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) 4/6 inhibitors. Methods 92 patients with biopsy-proven metastatic ER+/HER2- breast cancer, treated with CDK 4/6 inhibitors between 2018 an...
Chapter
This chapter discusses the use of minimally invasive ablative techniques for the nonsurgical treatment of breast cancer. It starts with an overview of the adverse effects related to conventional treatment and explains the clinical need for the development of nonoperative techniques to provide additional therapeutic options in breast care. It then e...
Article
Full-text available
Background Breast cancer (BC) includes different pathological and molecular subtypes. This study aimed to investigate whether multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) could reliably predict the molecular status of BC, comparing mpMRI features with pathological and immunohistochemical results. Methods This retrospective study included 156...
Article
Full-text available
We thank all the authors, reviewers and the editorial staff who contributed to this Special Issue [...]
Article
Purpose: Nowadays, surgical excision is no longer justified for all B3 lesions and a minimally-invasive therapeutic treatment has been encouraged. The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility and the therapeutic efficacy of ultrasound-guided vacuum-assisted excision (US-VAE) for the treatment of selected breast lesions of uncertain malign...
Article
Breast cancer is a heterogeneous disease nowadays, including different biological subtypes with a variety of possible treatments, which aim to achieve the best outcome in terms of response to therapy and overall survival. In recent years breast imaging has evolved considerably, and the ultimate goal is to predict these strong phenotypic differences...
Article
Background Normal background parenchymal enhancement (BPE) is a dynamic parameter affected by multiple factors. Purpose To determine whether contrast agent injection rate affects the degree of BPE in women undergoing breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Material and Methods A total of 85 patients included in our prospective study randomly rec...
Article
Full-text available
Objectives To evaluate the accuracy in lesion detection and size assessment of Unenhanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging combined with Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (UE-MRI+DBT) and Dynamic Contrast Enhanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging (DCE-MRI), in women with known breast cancer. Methods A retrospective analysis was performed on 84 patients with histol...
Article
Full-text available
The purpose of this study was to investigate MRI features of triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) compared with non-TNBC, to predict histopathological results. In the study, 26 patients with TNBC and 24 with non-TNBC who underwent multiparametric MRI of the breast on a 3 T magnet over a 10-months period were retrospectively recruited. MR imaging se...
Article
Full-text available
We retrospectively investigated, in 62 consecutive hospitalised COVID-19 patients (aged 70 ± 14 years, 40 males), the prognostic value of CT-derived subcutaneous adipose tissue and visceral adipose tissue (VAT) metrics, testing them in four predictive models for admission to intensive care unit (ICU), with and without pre-existing comorbidities. Mu...
Article
Full-text available
The Italian College of Breast Radiologists by the Italian Society of Medical Radiology (SIRM) provides recommendations for breast care provision and procedural prioritization during COVID-19 pandemic, being aware that medical decisions must be currently taken balancing patient’s individual and community safety: (1) patients having a scheduled or to...
Article
Full-text available
PurposeTo determine whether there is a correlation between the presence of peritumoral edema detected on T2-weighted sequences and pathological prognostic factors and specific biological subtypes of breast cancer.MethodsA retrospective study on 120 women with invasive breast cancer, who underwent breast MRI on a 3 T scanner over a period of 12 mont...
Article
Objectives: The role of functional techniques, such as magnetic resonance spectroscopy (H-MRS), as noninvasive tools to increase breast MR imaging reliability has been widely investigated during the last 2 decades. Considering the growing interest in tumor biology and its influence on functional parameters, the aim of this study was to investigate...
Article
Full-text available
Objectives To prospectively evaluate the accuracy in tumor extent and size assessment of Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in women with known breast cancer, with pathological size as the gold standard. Methods From May 2014 to April 2016, 50 patients with known breast cancer were enrolled in our prospective st...
Article
Background: The aim of this study was to evaluate the added value of digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) when combined with digital mammography (DM) in BI-RADS assessment and follow-up management. Methods: From February 2014 to January 2015, 214 patients underwent DM and DBT, acquired with a Siemens Mammomat Inspiration unit. 2 expert readers ind...
Article

Aim: Health-status of elderly patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) may limit surgical approach; other options are thus auspicable. Methods: The authors reviewed 98 selected patients, aged 65 to 90 years, with 149 HCC treated between 2002 and 2011. According to the extent of malignancy, health status and treatment, patients were divided i...
Article
This study compares proton magnetic resonancespectroscopic imaging (1H-MRSI) and dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI) combined techniques at 3T magnet versus [(18)F]choline PET/computed tomography (CT) in the detection of local prostate cancer recurrence in patients with biochemical progression after radical retropubic pro...

Institutional review board approval and informed patient consent were obtained for this prospective study. Fifty-eight...
Conference Paper
PURPOSE To investigate whether Gd-EOB-DTPA-enhanced MRI during the hepatobiliary phase correlate with histological grading of HCC METHOD AND MATERIALS 20 cirrhotic pateints with 32 HCCs detected at CT and US exam underwent Gadoxetic Acid-enhanced MR imaging for preoperative evaluation. MR studies were performed at 1.5 T scanner (Avanto, Siemens)....
Conference Paper
