Comment "Breast screening with ultrasound in patients with mammography-negative dense breasts" - Stefano Ciatto, Centro di Prevenzione Senologica, Verona, Italy "A previous study showed an incremental cancer detection rate of about 30% by adding routine ultrasonography in subjects with negativa mammography and dense breast. Still such an increase in detection might not be necessarily a benefit, e.g., it might account for overdiagnosis of not aggressive tumors. This study analyses the frequency of interval cancer in non-dense breast screened by mammography and in dense breasts screened by mammography + ultrasonography. In theory one would expect more interval cancers in dense breasts, as density reduces mammography sensitivity due to a masking effect. The finding of a similar (higher over age 50) frequency of interval cancers in dense as compared to non-dense breast is a convincing prove that ultrasonography really improves the sensitivity of mammography by reducing its false negatives" (Comment on: Corsetti V et al.: "Evidence of the effect of adjunct ultrasound screening in women with mammography negative dense breasts: Interval breast cancers at 1year follow-up", Eur J Cancer. 2011:47(7): 1021-6) Fragments of History Charles H. Moore:, Royal Medical and Chirugical Society, London, 1867: “On the influence of inadequate operations on the theory of cancer", Med Chir Trans 32: 245-80: “It is not sufficient to remove the cancer or any portion only of the breast in which it is situated; mammary cancer requires the careful extirpation of the entire organ. It is desirable to avoid not only cutting into the tumor but also seeing it. No actually morbid texture should be exposed, lest the active microscopic elements in it should be set free and lodge in the wound. Diseased axillary glands should be taken away at the same dissection as the breast itsel" Calendar of Events Breast Cancer Symposium 2011, September 8-10, 2011, San Francisco, California 7th Meet the Professor.
