Patients without clinical involvement of the axilla should undergo sentinel-node biopsy routinely, and may be spared complete axillary dissection when the sentinel node is disease-free ".

Advanced International Breast Cancer Conference (AIBCC), November 11-13, Padova, Italy - under the Patronage of Senology Update in Breast Imaging, 22-23 November, Ostend, Belgium FOCUS ON Breast MRI is essential for correct surgical decision-making in patients with breast cancer - in collaboration with Bracco Imaging In women with suspected breast cancer the aim of diagnostic imaging is to detect and accurately diagnose malignant tumors and to facilitate the correct choice of therapy, be it mastectomy or breast-conserving surgery with or without pre- operative neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Although conventional mammography and ultrasound are primary imaging modalities for women with breast cancer they have limited sensitivity and specificity, and are associated with an increased likelihood of inappropriate patient management if therapeutic decisions are made solely on the basis of mammography and ultrasound findings.

Kleinerman , Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics, National Cancer Institute, Bethesda, MD, USA “We conducted a case-control study of 201 cases and 378 controls among 53,547 5-year survivors of cervical cancer diagnosed from 1943 to 1995. More than 90% of women received radiation therapy, mostly with external beam therapy in combination with brachytherapy. We estimated individual radiation doses to the site of the stomach cancer for all cases and to corresponding sites for the matched controls. Our study showed for the first time a significant linear radiation dose-response relationship for risk of stomach cancer in long-term survivors of cervical cancer”.
