Determining pathological complete response (pCR) could be an important step in planning individual treatment, hence improving the prognosis in terms of survival. Achieving breast pCR not only improves survival but is also linked to a disease-free axilla, therefore increasing the likelihood of avoiding axillary surgery safely. The current trend in de-escalating axillary management surgically or in applying radiotherapy to the axilla is dependent primarily on breast cancer (BC) patients achieving pCR. Studies have demonstrated that certain characteristics can predict pCR, even though it is still difficult to identify these elements...

OBJECTIVE: An automated breast ultrasound system (ABUS) combined with screening mammography has increased cancer detection rates; however, supplemental ABUS use has increased recall rates. In this study, we aimed to identify an accurate and efficient method of ABUS interpretation and evaluate the potential usefulness of its coronal view versus the conventional transverse view. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This retrospective observer study included comprised 114 ABUS cases (40 normal, 35 benign, 39 malignant)...

OBJECTIVE: Mastalgia is the most common breast-related complaint. A multitude of hormonal changes and lifestyle associated factors have been implicated in its causation. A long list of treatment modalities have been tried with varying success rates.

OBJECTIVE: Estrogen receptor (ER) expression is an immunohistochemical marker that is examined in all invasive breast cancers and has prognostic and predictive value. ER-positive breast cancers refer to those that show positivity for ER at 1% cellular expression or higher. The American Society of Clinical Oncology/College of American Pathologists guidelines suggest using the term "low ER-positive breast cancer" for tumors with ER expression between 1% and 10%. Low ER-positive breast cancers exhibit similarities, in terms of disease-free survival and overall survival rates, to triple-negative breast cancers (TNBCs) rather than ER-positive breast cancers...

OBJECTIVE: Breast conserving surgery is an excellent option in the treatment of breast cancer. To achieve a good result with this modality, a surgeon needs to identify and excise the tumor with adequate margins. The radiofrequency identification (RFID) technique is a wireless localization technique used for intraoperative breast lesion identification. We assessed the efficacy and outcomes of the RFID technique in breast cancer patients at our institution. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This is a single institution, retrospective study (BSMH 22-02X-MWH) of 73 patients...

OBJECTIVE: Breast cancer (BC) is a significant health concern and one of the most diagnosed cancers in women, both in Turkey and globally. Despite advances in the management of BC, axillary lymph node involvement remains a significant consideration for treatment planning, local recurrence, and prognosis. We aimed to evaluate the contribution of F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography/computed tomography (F-18 FDG-PET/CT) in detecting axillary lymph node metastasis compared to ultrasound (US)...

Breast cancer stands as the most prevalent malignancy, necessitating a well-established approach to its management due to its sustained prevalence over decades. The implementation of intensive treatments, combining various modalities, has yielded excellent survival outcomes. Consequently, the optimization of quality of life and the mitigation of long-term side effects emerge as critical considerations for clinicians. As a result, discussions regarding treatment de-intensification strategies have been initiated for all treatment modalities, including surgery, radiotherapy (RT), and chemotherapy...

OBJECTIVE: Idiopathic granulomatous mastitis (IGM) is a benign inflammatory breast disease of unknown etiology that affects women in their reproductive period. The most commonly preferred option as first-line treatment is steroids, but the lack of a standard treatment protocol and high recurrence rate after treatment constitutes a recurring challenge during its management. The aim of this study was to investigate whether the decision to end the treatment should be made radiologically or clinically...

OBJECTIVE: Breast cancer is an important topic worldwide, posing morbidity and mortality to women. Considerable efforts have been put in the early recognition of malignancy through different screening methods, such as mammography and ultrasound. The precise localization of infraclinical malignant lesions is key in surgical management and magnetic seeds gather particular interest for this purpose. As with other systems, a need for reintervention may be needed to obtain adequate surgical margins...

Erkin Arıbal
The landscape of breast imaging has transformed significantly since mammography's introduction in the 1960s, accelerated by ultrasound and imageguided biopsies in the 1990s. The emergence of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the 2000s added a valuable dimension to advanced imaging. Multimodality and multiparametric imaging have firmly established breast radiology's pivotal role in managing breast disorders. A shift from conventional to digital radiology emerged in the late 20th and early 21st centuries, enabling advanced techniques like digital breast tomosynthesis, contrast-enhanced mammography, and artificial intelligence (AI) integration...

OBJECTIVE: Breast-conserving surgery (BCS) followed by radiotherapy (RT) is the standard treatment for early-stage breast cancer. The use of an additional RT dose (boost) to the tumour bed improves local control but may worsen quality of life (QOL) and cosmetic results. Multifocal/multicentric tumours (MMTs) pose a challenge as they require larger boost volumes. This study investigated the impact of RT volumes on late-term cosmetic outcomes and QOL in patients with unifocal and MMTs who underwent adjuvant RT after BCS...

Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) after breast-conserving surgery is rare, and its diagnosis is often delayed because of the similarity to wound infection and the broad differential diagnosis for PG, making it a diagnosis of exclusion. A 60-year-old woman who underwent breast conserving surgery and sentinel lymph node biopsy for invasive breast carcinoma presented with increasing erythema, fever and serosanguinous discharge in the lower outer quadrant of the right breast at the site of tumour excision on postoperative day (POD) 9...

OBJECTIVE: Breast imaging for male patients is a controversial topic due to the high prevalence of gynecomastia compared to male breast cancer. Worldwide, men are undergoing more breast imaging despite the low incidence of male breast cancer. Gynecomastia is a benign condition, but the anxiety it causes and unnecessary medical costs are still high. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In accordance with Royal College of Radiology guidelines, a retrospective study was performed in two cycles to determine if mammography or ultrasound should be included in the workup of male patients who were referred to a breast care unit for a lump that was deemed benign by doctors...
