- Amplification of PVT1 contributes to the pathophysiology of ovarian and breast cancerYinghui Guan
Life Sciences Division, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Berkeley, California 94720, USA
Clin Cancer Res 13:5745-55. 2007..This study was designed to elucidate the role of amplification at 8q24 in the pathophysiology of ovarian and breast cancer because increased copy number at this locus is one of the most frequent genomic abnormalities in these cancers...
- MRI-directed, wire-localized breast excisions: incidence of malignancy and recommendations for pathologic evaluationJoseph W Carlson
Department of Pathology, Brigham and Women s Hospital, Boston, MA 02115, USA
Hum Pathol 38:1754-9. 2007..This study demonstrates that gross examination and specimen radiography do not identify most of the malignancies in MRI-localized biopsies and, therefore, optimal processing requires complete microscopic examination of these specimens...
- Breast MRI wire-guided excisional biopsy: specimen size as compared to mammogram wire-guided excisional biopsy and implications for useSara H Javid
Department of Surgery, Brigham and Women s Hospital, Boston, MA, USA
Ann Surg Oncol 14:3352-8. 2007..We hypothesized that more tissue would be resected with MRIbx compared to Mammobx. We also sought to evaluate factors that might predict the presence of breast cancer in patients undergoing MRIbx...
